Razer's online store in the U.K. is allowing users to input a simple promo code to receive a 90 percent discount on their order, but representatives with the company say they don't know why.

A Razer spokesperson told Polygon that the company didn't intentionally set up this discount, saying, "We're looking into exactly what it is, but there's no 90 percent off promotion."

We were informed of the promo code — "1234" — in an anonymous tip, and were able to verify it ourselves on the checkout page of the Razer Store (see image below). We were unable to get the code to work in the U.S. store, and many items in the store are now listed as backordered or out of stock

Update: Added comment from Razer representatives.
