Christmas has come early for one lucky student, who received over £3,600 worth of free Amazon gifts thanks to a technical glitch!

Robert Quinn was shocked when he started receiving the parcels last week, all of which were addressed to his Bromley, South East London home.

In total, the 22-year-old engineering student received a whopping 48 items, including an £899 Samsung 3D TV, £120 laptop and £338 Galaxy tablet.

Other items in the haul were game consoles, CDs, wine and even a single bed.

And the best thing? The online retailer has said the lucky lad can keep the entire lot!

Robert reckons there was a computer database error that meant all goods were returned to his family home instead of the depot.

He was quoted in The Sun explaining: "It's random stuff. Everything is packaged with returns labels, so people are sending these items back to Amazon."

Despite contacting Amazon several times, the company have said he can keep everything that arrives.

Robert added: "I told them I have a moral issue if people sending this stuff back end up losing out. But Amazon assured me that would not happen."

He plans to sell most of the products to make money for a business he's starting and will donate other items to charity.

A spokesperson for Amazon confirmed: "This matter has now been resolved and I can confirm that on this occasion the customer has been informed that he can keep the items that were delivered."
