According to US news sites on Saturday morning, some customers have purchased multiple units of iPad after the unbelievable deal went viral on Twitter and Facebook.

As noted at CNN, Apple iPad is being usually priced at $744.99 while other reports reveal a $500 to $800 price, which is very much higher than the accidental bargain price of $69.

Apparently, Sears have realized the error after less than an hour and immediately deleted the listed iPad and posted a message on their official Facebook page, as written below.

“Unfortunately, today one of the Marketplace third party sellers told us that they mistakenly posted incorrect pricing on two Apple iPad models on the Marketplace portion of the website.

If you purchased either of these products recently, your order has been cancelled and your account will be credited. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Sears also tweeted that any related deal will not be honored and that the mistake was made by a third-party vendor but did not reveal its name.
