Telus cancelled my orders

Well i was browsing the telus website and i found this extremely awesome deal. Iphone XR $3.33 monthly on bring it back. $200 after the 24 months to buy out the phone or return it. so basically $322 for the XR and the plan is $45/m for 15GB because 4 lines or more have a discount of $20 each. But now all 4 orders were cancelled. i did not think it was a price error. But now i check the telus website again and it says $13.33 monthly of bring it back. So it seems like someone setting the prices screwed up? Do i have any recourse?

Nope - manufacturers don't have to honor online price errors and are allowed to cancel orders.

I'd call in and inquire the status of your order and when the rep tells you it was cancelled - ask for the reason.

If cancelled due to price error, see if they'll throw in some credits etc since you didn't think it was a price error.

No real recourse that Telus needs to honour the price error but definitely a poor customer experience for you......so perhaps a goodwill gesture they'll give something.

Gluck!

Wouldn't apply to any online order from a retailer anyways.

Also, with regards to that comment about "did not think it was a price error" I mean, come on! An iPhone XR for $322 total cost? There's absolutely no way Telus would offer that kind of deal!

XR could be bad for $600 from koodo like 1 month ago. So $322 is possible. And they also lock u in for 2 year contract so guaranteed profit. And new iPhones coming out so maybe they were trying to unload these phones. So anything is possible.

There is no $45/line
cause is not save $20 each

Save $20*
off your total monthly bill**
*$5 per line up to 9 lines***
**After tax
***9 lines equals $45 off your total monthly bill
is $5 off per line. So for 4 is 4 x $5 = $20 off total bill
So a $65/month per line is $60/month per line not $45

I think you should clarify that in your OP because it creates more anxiety attacks for people thinking its an in market plan for Ontario.
