    Peso exchange rate loophole gives online shoppers thousands of kilometers from Argentina surprise 40% discounts

    The loophole, which has been partially closed, was reported by users in Germany, Indonesia and Spain, and worked with PayPal and VISA.


    BILD reported that one customer had made a €1000 transaction but was only debited €600. Another said they had bought a €171 piece of software for €100. Another user published on the MyDealz.De portal that they had made a €100 purchase on Amazon, but €77.80 were debited. A user on Chollómetro, a Spanish website dedicated to bargains, posted that he had bought a €1449 iPhone 14 pro for €854.59 in El Corte Inglés, the biggest department store group in Europe.
