Flipkart goofs up Disney+ Hotstar Premium subscription offer by providing 93% discount

Flipkart goofed up a Disney+ Hotstar premium subscription offer on sale by providing it at a flat 93% discount. Many users were able to buy the Disney+ Hotstar Premium subscription plan at just Rs 99. In a tweet posted earlier today, Flipkart accepted that it was an “unexpected error” that led to the discounted listing of Disney+ Hotstar Premium subscription. The offer has since been taken down and the e-tailer has assured buyers of refund.

The Disney+ Hotstar Premium subscription usually costs Rs 1,499 for a year and Flipkart’s listing by one of its largest sellers RetailNet discounted the subscription plan’s price by 93%. Users have taken it to Twitter, enraged over this sheer suddenness of Flipkart walking back on such an enticing offer. 

Disney+ Hotstar’s official Twitter handle also posted a message saying that the listing on Flipkart was “not an official listing” and urged users not to interact with “illegal listings”. So those users who were able to purchase the Disney+ Hotstar Premium subscription plan at Rs 99 now want the company to go through with this offer as intended and provide them with the benefits of this offer. 

There’s no clarity on what caused this error and it remains to be seen whether Flipkart acknowledges the public outrage and goes through with the offer. Otherwise, the e-commerce giant has confirmed that users who purchased this offer will get refunds.
