Online users thought it was a steal for Microsoft Store Singapore to offer its soon-to-launch Office 2013 for only SGD5.
From Hardwarezone Forum,
"More SGD$5 deals here:
Product have been taken down.
Those who received their product keys, now we wait.
Those who are waiting for their product keys, hope you get yours soon. "
The Microsoft Store Singapore has since taken down the "$5 offer" and has offered a refund.
Wrote Microsoft Singapore Facebook Page,
"We recently learned that some Microsoft online store customers were able to purchase certain Office 2013 products from the Microsoft online store Singapore that were not generally advertised or priced for sale, and are still pending general release.
To remedy the issue, we are issuing a full refund of these purchases of the Office 2013 products. To make up for any inconvenience, we have offered these customers a single use coupon for up to $25 off the next purchase from Microsoft online store.
We advise these customers to contact our Microsoft Store Sales and Customer Support hotline if there are any further questions on this matter: 1-800-818-5235."
