Samsung Free 50" 4K UHD TV
What is going on with AT&T and Samsung.? I can't stand being ping-ponged back and forth between the companies. On November 30th, I started wireless service with AT&T. I screenshotted the offer just in case something like this happened. I even copied and pasted the offer details into a TXT file. I will paste the offer details below too. It's been almost 14 days and I'm about ready to go turn this phone back in. I've done my research and searched the forums and saw the trouble people had getting their TV back in 2016-2017. I didn't see their troubles until today though. AT&T tells me Samsung is the one that sends me to the code after they verify my eligibility. Samsung tells me since it's a promotion from AT&T, then it's their job to send me the code. Neither company seems to know what they're doing. As a former customer service agent of another company and now as someone who spot-checks other quality assurance analysts who score those recorded calls all the customers take part in with the representatives, I'm ashamed to see the level of customer service I've received. I've spoken to over a dozen the past week. A few are great at expressing sympathy and empathy, but it appears none have the knowledge and expertise to truly own the call to put a customer's mind at ease.
I'm not here to go on and on about the lack of customer service though. I'm here about my TV. I started wireless service because I needed it, but also to provide a nice Christmas gift to my mother who is needing a new TV. If I can't get this resolved asap, I'm turning in my phone at the nearest AT&T store and canceling Friday within the 14 day window. I got a galaxy S9+ on the AT&T Next plan and it's a new account/new line because I transferred my number over from another carrier. AT&T swore up and down it would still count and be eligible because it's still considered a new line of service. Who do I contact exactly? What department? Do I email the attcustomercare email address?
Here is the offer details and the screenshot of the offer:
