A trader commits a misleading commercial practice when it offers products of other traders at a reduced price, while in fact the former does not have the right to offer such reduced prices.
Defendant offered bonus coupons on its websites, which, when purchased, should have enabled the consumers to acquire certain products and services of other companies at a reduced price (i.e. the price of the coupon, which was less than the ordinary price of the product or service itself).
The Consumer Protection Board ascertained that the defendant had not entered into according agreements with the other traders for provision of their products or services at the reduced price corresponding to the bonus coupons. Therefore, the defendant had no legal ground to make such offerings to the consumers.
Does a trader commit a misleading commercial practice when it offers products of other traders at a reduced price, while in fact the former does not have the right to offer such reduced prices?
The Consumer Protection Board noted that the commercial practice of the defendant must be considered misleading, as it contains false information concerning the existence of the product (the product the consumer would be entitled to receive following the purchase of the bonus coupon).
The Consumer Protection Board referred to Art. 12.3 Sect. 8 Clause 9 of the Estonian Consumer Protection Act, which sets forth that stating or otherwise creating the impression that a product or service can legally be sold when it cannot constitutes unfair practice and is prohibited.
