Fast food giant Domino's faced a flurry of orders today after accidentally offering customer £40 ($78) off.

Customers across the UK were quick to take advantage of what was labelled a "balls up" on social media.

More than 500 orders were reportedly made to just one Aberdeen branch in just two hours, according to the Daily Mail.

The HOTFRESH code cuts orders costing £50 or more by 40 per cent usually, but Twitter users reported far greater price decreases this afternoon.

Connor Melville says he went to his local Domino's to find about 100 people waiting for their orders as disappointed customers were refunded rather than receiving their orders.

While some celebrated getting two pizzas along with wings and dips for just £10, others claimed to have witnessed disturbing scenes of verbal abuse.

Angry customers reportedly raged at workers as staff broke the news that head office had "nulled and refunded all orders" made in relation to the apparent blunder.

After buying two 13.5-inch pizzas, garlic and herb big dip, and seven chicken wings for a puzzling £1.17, Hollie Turner shared the good news to fellow diners on her Twitter feed.

The chain has yet to comment on the supposed glitch as some were left disappointed they missed out on the brief deal.
