Rewards promised not given

Rewards promised not given

When I signed up for a Uverse Bundle, I was told I could get a Kindle Fire or an Xbox 360. I chose a Kindle Fire.  Received my reward notification today for $100 gift card.  Where's the Kindle Fire?  From other posts on this site as well as on the internet, it seems I'm not the only one who was promised something they did not receive.  Can anyone advise me how to proceed?

Thanks!

Re: Rewards promised not given

I have had U-verse for 3 1/2 years, I have never seen a promotion for a free Kindle Fire or an XBox 360 for signing up for U-verse service.  Where did you see this promotion?  Do you have a link to a website?

If there were a kindle fire or xbox 360 as a promo then I want mine.

Another poster mentioned the Kindle or Xbox promo back in November. I did a little googling and found a promo from an authorized retailer known as attsavings.com (no longer active). Perhaps that's where OP purchased his/her service.

Re: Rewards promised not given

The AT&T rep that i was speaking to on the phone offered it to me.  I called AT&T to switch to Uverse.  She said they were having a special.  If I signed up for a Uverse Bundle, I could get my choice of a Kindle Fire or an Xbox 360.  This was what the AT&T rep told me on the phone.  I signed up, and she told me I would get a rewards letter in the mail in about 30 days, which I did. It was for a gift card, not a Kndle Fire.

Btw, yes, this was in November.  My installation was Dec. 5th.

Did you call 800-288-2020 to place your order? When I was a rep, I had customers insist the AT&T rep told them such and such, but then they told me the number they called an it was an AT&T authorized retailer.

Re: Rewards promised not given

HI Schoolmom3,

 

I replied to your PM. Unfortunately we do not offer Kindles or Xboxs to sign you. There are vendors like Best Buy that offer free cases or gift cards when you purchase from them and they are responsible for that.

 

Sorry,

Re: Rewards promised not given

I knew I wasn't crazy!  I was already an AT&T customer, calling to upgrade to Uverse.  Everyone kept saying I must have called a third party retailer.  I CALLED AT&T!  I found my notes from the interaction.  The AT&T rep even told me to go to att.com/rewardscenter after 30 days to receive my free Kindle Fire.  I have been an AT&T customer for many years, and have always received great customer service, but this is just ridiculous!  Out and out lie!

So, I finally got my Kindle Fire HD 7" from AT&T. Happy about that! Hope you get yours too, if not already!

I have not received ours either. Seems like we were lied to. Did anyone receive theirs. Use it to entice me to leave Xfinity
