Sky's Christmas gift to VIP customers.

Hi Sky. 

 

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the extremely generous Christmas gift you have given your super loyal Sky VIP customers who spend millions every year in subscriptions alone.

 

Arthur Christmas. A 2011 movie.... yeah.... thanks Sky!

Re: Sky's Christmas gift to VIP customers.

I was also a little bemused by this random gift I was kind of hoping there would be different ones to choose from so I haven't claimed I'm sure the film is great for those with small children but for me it's like getting socks for Christmas lol..

A little knowledge will probably break it get someone else to sort it..

Re: Sky's Christmas gift to VIP customers.

I like socks. Socks are both useful and need replacing every so often, so an annual sock refresh is not unwelcome.

Yeah... it's a Christmas gift, a choice of some recent movies would have been nice, or even a box set. 😁

Re: Sky's Christmas gift to VIP customers.

Can anyone advise how I can get this free gift as I am away on holiday in Australia and not back until after the offer expires? If I was at home it would be easy to just go in to Sky Store on my Sky Box.

Is there a neighbour you could ask to go round?

Oh I see. Your joking right? You couldn't care less about it?  🤪

Dear Sky

I too am completely underwhelmed by ypour Christmas gift to a loyal customer currently paying over the odds again as my last discount has lapsed.

I thought Terry Maybe's Brexit was a bad deal but I think you may have surpassed even her best efforts.

Re: Sky's Christmas gift to VIP customers.

My favourite thing about this is that having downloaded the free gift I realised that it’s being shown on channel 4 on Christmas Day. Good grief. Come on Sky, you can do better than that.

Re: Sky's Christmas gift to VIP customers.

Oh yes they can..... but they won't.  😁 

 

A "Christmas gift" like that for loyal custoners (me anyway) really feels like a slap in the face. The whole VIP thing doesn't do enough to reward all VIP customers for their loyalty. If you like football and manage to get tickets to a game then that's great. If you get cinema tickets and you live close enough to one of the cinemas then great again. If your lucky enough to win a prize draw then bloody epic! What about all the other customers who can't take advantage of these VIP offerings??

 

Scrap the current VIP setup and instead of giving inconsistent rewards to some, give every VIP custoner a fair and consistent discount on their very costly subscriptions.

 

The discounts should be based on the number of years you've been a VIP.

 

Then all VIP customers can have a share of the reward and then you can stop insulting us with these stingy and very un-tactful freebies.
