View Full Version : PCWorld gave me a D40X instead of a D40!!!

I decided to purchase my first DSLR and had made my mind up on a D40. I ordered one via Call&Collect from my local PC World, and intended on making them price match Amazon's price of 272.

I waited in the queue for ages to be served, and once I got home I realised that he hadn't given me a D40 but a D40X instead! :) So I've paid 272, Nikon's 30 cashback off bring the price down to 242, and the 6 from quidco brings it down even further to 236. Not bad eh?

PC World don't even have the D40X listed on their website, so I don't think that it was the sales assistant who messed up.

Sounds like you lucked out. Congrats on the deal! I wish our retailers would pricematch Amazon, let alone make nice mistakes like this :(

that's what, 3000 dollars us, at current exchange rates? http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/smilies/smile.gif

Well done, always nice to hear someone getting one over DSG Retail.

That is awesome!
I'm sure you will love the camera, looking forward to seeing your pics.
Which PC World was it?!

I am somewhat ambivalent on this one.

The sales clerk messed-up??

So, what of the repercussions for that faux-pax??
