Family Gets Refund After Baby Books A Car On Priceline


Thanks to the good ol' Internet, shopping has never been easier -- but sometimes, the ease of a one-click purchase can go totally wrong.

A baby in Minnesota seems to be especially good at online shopping, as he accidentally authorized for a car rental costing approximately $600.

Here's how that happened: Mandy Ellingson was sitting at her computer with her baby Daniel on her lap. She was in the last stage of finalizing the booking, but right at that moment she was alerted that her in-laws had found a better deal.

As she leaned over to cancel the Priceline option, her little bundle of joy hit the button that committed the family to the rental.

Ellingson reached out to the company for a refund, but was told that it simply couldn't happen. Though she explained that it was her baby who actually made the reservation, the employee wouldn't budge.

A local CBS affiliate aired the story, and soon after, Ellingson was contacted by a representative for the discount travel site. They told her that due to the unique situation they would authorize a "one-time exception."

Despite the happy ending, the baby's computer privileges have been revoked.
