Free WiFi extenders?

My internet 1GB service was supposed to come with two free WiFi extenders.  When my service was being installed 6/15/18 the technician informed me I would have to pay him $50 per extender or I could wait for ATT to send me an email to claim my free extenders.  No such email from ATT to date.  Also looked on myATT site and no reference to extenders.  Please provide me some details on how I can claim my extenders.

You are incorrect sir. I ordered Uverse Internet + TV on 6/10 online with AT&T with a special promotion for 2 free Wi-Fi Extenders (Airties) with the purchase of Internet 1000. Just got it installed yesterday, 6/23. Uverse install tech indicated that I would be receiving an email from AT&T where I would be able to get reimbursed 2 free wi-fi extenders when I filled out info and sent it back. He insisted I don't forget about it because these devices aren't cheap, and even told me the app to download on my smartphone that helps set them up when I receive them. The app is called "Smart Home Manager".

I received the WiFi extenders as a reward as well but on my bill I am still charged 50$ for the WiFi extender? How is it a “free” reward if I am being charged for it?

I have been thrown to every facet of customer service on the phone to get these free wi-fi extenders, and no one can get me the information to claim them. They just keep sending me in circles and the next person has no idea what the prior person routed me to them for. This is a joke.

it's a bait and switch scam... the email that i got to sign up for the service said the same thing... i have talked to multiple customer service reps and was told they would be mailed out... never received... when i escalated it, i was told that the offer expired and i was eligible even though the email i received said it came with the extenders.

Still never received a proper reply on why I couldn't receive the Wi-Fi extenders. Spoke to multiple customer service reps who keep switching me between departments. I shouldn't have to be on the phone for 5+ hours total as of now to get something that was a front page offer on your website.

I placed an upgrade to the 300 internet. It was shown that I would be able to get the free extenders because I upgraded to the two top tiered fiber internet plans. two months have passed with no email on how to redeem that offer. AT&T, do right by your customers and honor what you offer.

It's not a bait and switch. I got the extenders.

I ordered my service late October 2018 and was told about the promotion. So, I upgraded to the 1000 internet and when I called to get them to mail them to me, I was informed that the promotion expired in September 2018..

yep i got the same bullsh!t excuse.  The free extenders were in the message that i got.  i tried multiple times and kept getting the run-around until i was told i was not eligible and then got another bullsh!t excuse about the $50 card as well... this was one of the reasons i left ATT to begin with... thought id give them another chance but it doesn't seem like anything has changed... i'll do my 12 months
