Trying to sort Samsung paying my outstanding balance for S21 - Customer Service abysmal

Got an email from Samsung saying my upgrade was complete and my S21 would be paid off within 10 working days; well the 10th working day was last Friday and it hasn't been paid. 

Been trying to contact someone at Samsung to sort it for over 2 days now, phone calls, live chat all without success; everyone I speak to on the phone is the wrong department (many not Samsung) and Live Chat just times out before an agent appears.

 

So frustrating 😡

Samsung make some great products, but their customer service is the worst I have ever encountered.

I'm having the same issue. Contact number on the email and given to me via chat is the trade in team but they say they can't help and can't explain why their number is on the email. They did give me an email address to try, not had a response yet -

Also contacted Klarna and they have escalated to 2nd line support. I should get a response in 'a few days'....

Managed to speak to someone at Samsung today, they asked for a screenshot of email that said my upgrade was complete. I was told they'd get back to me in 24 to 48hrs; we'll see.

When I spoke to Klarna on Monday they said there was nothing they could do, Samsung had to sort it. Might try them again if I don't hear back from Samsung.

Success. Just had an email from Klarna saying my S21 account has been paid; checked my online Klarna account, just to be sure, and it now only shows the S22 account. Phew 🙂

I contacted Samsung using the 03307267467 number, using option 2 on the menu; this was the Tuesday, with the 10 days expiring the previous Friday. I explained the situation, that the 10 working days had expired without payment; I had to email a screenshot of the email from Samsung saying the upgrade was complete. I was told I'd be contacted within 24 to 48hrs.

Later on the Tuesday, coincidentally, I got the usual email from Klarna saying my S21 payment would shortly be taken. 

On Wednesday I got an email from Samsung saying the S21 had been paid off; it had. I also got a refund from Klarna for the amount of an S21 monthly payment. The refund confused me a bit, but it became clear when an S21 payment was taken from me on Monday _ this payment was obviously in the system and couldn't be stopped, so they effectively refunded it, before I paid it.

Happy its all sorted, although Samsung really need to get their systems sorted to stop this happening.

Pleased to hear it's sorted. I have fingers crossed for mine too!

Just had a confirmation email from Klarna to say that Samsung have finally acknowledged the return and paid the balance. Still not heard a peep our of Samsung, which I find a real disgrace and reflects terribly on their brand.
