I have got my vouchers!!!!!!!
I first contacted the Advertising standards agency http://www.asa.org.uk yesterday. They responded and gave me a reference number and to email sky on this address DL-IAF0907@bskyb.com. Half an hour later I get 2 phone calls apologising and that they are is the post. I have just received £50 vouchers by recorded delivery. They ASA have had over 40 complaints from customers.
I hope this helps some of you. Follow the above steps and it should work for you.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Also could not believe they rung me and sent them out. Thanks SKY finally got it sorted....

I have not received my vouchers either. I have been calling and emailing, including filling in the form on 3 separate ocassions since August and everytime I ring up I am told to wait another 28 days. Surely this is illegal and everyone should complain to the Ombudsman, they might pull their finger out a bit quicker then. There is obviously a problem with these vouchers as so many people have complained. POOR SKY CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!

I haven't received my vouchers. Sky at first said that my friend purchased their sky via a shop(untrue) then they said I had to prove that I had introduced my friend(I did it on my computer with my friend sitting next to me) but I didn't know how to prove it. Then they said I hadn't completed the introduce a friend correctly.. I followed all on line instructions and they asked my details etc at the time. This is a disgrace. I have now complained to advertising standard agency, I am contemplating going to mar justice (sun sun newspaper),and am so annoyed at the treatment given that I am considering ending my contract with sky!!!!!!!! Why make promises and then not follow through....

Dear Malcolm, I filled in the form from your link in January and 28 days later I have still NOT received the promised £50 Marks and Spencers vouchers. How long are you stringing it out as we have waited 7 months now????? You have broken your contract with me and I will shortly be cancelling my Sky account as your Customer Services are a complete let down time after time. I will look at Virgin or BT who appreciate their customers.

Don't you think this is a bit of a joke? For a company this big to mess up so many customers?
I also joined sky over 2 months ago and I am still waiting for the £50 vouchers from M&S. After numerous calls, I have been told they were dispatched on the 2nd of March. If my maths are right, that's over 45 days!!!! And guess what? They are not here!
I will be filling this form and if I don't receive a satisfactory answer I will be going straight to the Advertising Standards Authority and/or OFCOM as this is simply false advertising.
Not a happy customer!

Hi Malcom, I did receive a response but not a satisfactory one, as usual! bue what else can customers expect from SKY? This is the reply I received and you can also see my answer to that unacceptable "response"
The xxxx are because they are my personal details!
Are you kidding me???? I have to wait another 28 days???? I have already waited two months!!! I was told they were dispatched on the 2nd of March and to wait 28 days from that date. Now you are telling me I have to wait another 28? Come on! Let's be professional and get serious here.
As I posted earlier if i dont receive the £50 voucher by Friday 29.04.11 I will be going straight to OFCOM and the advertising standards authority....
Also, I can see your reply is simply a "copy paste" that you will probably have as a signature. Come on, I am not the only one having this problem, there are loads of customers with the same issue so please dont add insult to the injury by saying " I wish to reassure you that this unfortunate episode is not an accurate reflection of the normally high standard of efficiency we seek to provide to our customers" because it's BS!
To reiterate, I will be contacting OFCOM and the advertising standards authority if I dont receive the voucher by Friday 29.04.11. My patience has run out.
Not a happy customer,
Acc number: xxxxxxxxxx
