I am very annoyed and frustrated with the current voucher scheme. I decided on 07/11/11 to upgrade my subscription to Sky+HD as my Sky+ box is currently faulty and when I rang Sky I was told that they do not supply new Sky+ boxes but that they now replace with Sky +HD boxes, as I was an existing customer they could send me one for free and that the subscription for HD was an extra £10.25 a month. I decided based on what I was told to sign up for this. When I later logged onto the Sky website I saw that there was an offer for existing customers when upgrading online to Sky+ HD to get £100 worth of M&S vouchers as well, something that the phone sales advisor did not make me aware of. I rang Sky back and told them I wished to cancel the order and that I would re-order online as I wished to be part of this offer, I was told that I could cancel the order but that I would not then be able to get the £100 voucher as the system would still show that I had ordered in the first instance, so I would not be able to order it online. How ridiculous can you get, basically Sky are telling me that due to the inflexability of their IT systems I am not elligable for the £100 M&S voucher, there didn't seem to be anyone available to talk to that could apply common sense to this issue or maybe a case of profiteering in the guise of inflexable IT systems. I am so annoyed I have cancelled the SKY +HD order and am seriously considering moving to cable even though I have been a long term SKY customer.

hi, been a first time customer, i am appalled & disgusted, by the lack of professional support and incompetence by sky Team and thier customer services on two counts, first been unable to send an engineer to instail internet line on 3 seperate occations and also M&S PROMOTION OFFER After been lured by the m&s £50 promotion offer and choosing sky as a provider 3 months have past, Ive sent countless messagers and phone calls were a adviser on sky customer service was meant to call back to solve and explain the situation and provide a resolution but no feedback or calls were returned, which department can i contact within sky that is higher than customer service to resolve these problem or if not can sky cancel my account contract because joing sky has so far has been a nightmare???

Hi vale86, sorry to hear the experience has been so bad.
Have you been given a date for the broadband going live or is it still up in the air? How long ago did your TV service go live as the vouchers would normally arrive within a month or so of this?

I also have experience of this scam. Having spoken to Sky last week and been promised a call back within 72 hrs, this did not happen. Today I called Customer Services, what a joke that was, I spoke with Ashliegh. apparently it is not her job to resolve this issue, it is my fault for not applkying properly,a nd she would not do anything about it. I believe that this is a scam to get people to join SKY, I have lodged a complaint with Ofcom of the Sky service being missold.
I have informed Ashliegh that I would name her personally as a Sky Customer Agent, she was fine with that. No doubt, I will hear nothing from Sky, it's not their problem
