Amazon Air Fryer £3.99 Glitch

The significant discount was nothing but a glitch. The air fryer was the subject of a pricing error. That caused thousands of consumers to purchase the item but later turned into a disappointment as Amazon announced it was just a web issue. As a result, many people started referencing the Amazon Air Fryer scam as a scheme to collect credit card numbers and other forms of payment.

The Amazon fryer looks very good as a household item, but the page is now offline. However, Twitter users are going nuts over the deal – not in a serious way, but sarcastic. Here is one of the thousands of funny tweets earlier this morning, below:

All those who purchased the Amazon air fryer will be refunded their money, the retailer said. The store selling the product was RUXINGGU, and the shipping was free if you were an Amazon Prime member.

The only string attached was that the delivery was estimated to be between September 9-18th. However, for that price, many Primers rushed to buy it. The Amazon air fryer, which still sells for £44, features a 30-minute timer and has an easy clean operation. It offers unique modes for cooking steak, chicken, fish, shrimp, chips, pork, and cakes.
