No Mobile Care Light acknowledgement with Galaxy S8+ preorder

New Member

I preordered the special galaxy s8 promotion that came with mobile care light for free. The packaging doesn't acknowledge that my device has mobile care light. How can I redeem it?

I have called this number, and they state that their service is only for taking excess payments from people, they do not administer the insurance, or know anything about the paperwork.

Thank you. 

I ordered directly from Samsung, the order page is still Here
The site states you can make a claim by calling the number you stated above which is odd having called the number they don't know much about the insurance. 
All I really want, is some kind of acknowledgement from Samsung that I bought this insurance product, and my insurance policy number for me to keep on my records. You would think that Samsung would be more forthcoming to someone spending almost £800 on a phone. But so far Samsung have ignored 2 other requests for this simple information. 
That's correct, the advert is still on the Samsung site:-

I followed the link you provided and used the online email form and I got a response back (more than 48 hours later) asking me to contact the oneline shop directly.


I JUST DID! How can the oneline shop contact me advising to contact the online shop?

Your customer service is awful and your internal communications are a joke.

It is not a customers problem that your internal structures are too siloed and you do not have even the most basic of processes to pass information between "departments" - when will you learn that "Samsung" is just that to a customer - we do not care and should not be impacted by how you wish to carve up internal responsibilities.
