This afternoon, I got this email:
My name is Billy Tucker and I am the CEO of Cudo. I am writing to you regarding your recent purchase of cupcakes from Ghermez Cupcakes on October 19, 2010.
At Cudo, your total satisfaction is everything to us. We select the best businesses in Australia to partner with, who provide amazing offers in return. However, as we received such a phenomenal response to this offer it is proving to be problematic to meet the demand from consumers without compromising quality and standards.
To ensure every Cudo experience is always a faultless one, on this occasion, I have come to the decision to unwind the offer and, instead, refund in full every one of the members who purchased but have yet to receive their cupcakes.
We would like to apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause, and would like to assure you that offering great quality is as important to us as offering a great bargain.
We have issued you with a refund and you should have a notification of this via email.
Okay, fine, I’m getting a refund, no problemo. But what’s the deal? Is it a simple case of Ghermez not being able to keep up with the demand? Were they not keeping their end of the deal?
Curiosity is killing this cat.
Also: I could murder a cupcake right now.
