Apologies if this the wrong place for this posting this but was wondering if anyone has had any luck putting in a claim for this promotion.

 

I tried today and got to the serial numbers screen. It just says my serial numbers are not the correct format. They are definitely correct as I copied from order complete email.  I called them and they said to send a screenshot.

 

Just wondering if anyone has been successful or had the same problem.

 

Cheers

I’m really not happy as I feel I have been totally misled and ended up buying a soundbar that I wouldn’t have done, at this time, without this offer. 

 

I’ve been looking for a new TV and noticed that the Samsung Store had 25% off via the StudentBeans discount portal. Shown in the screenshot below:

As you can see it is advertising the competition but be honest, I didn’t pay much attention to it. I then went to buy the TV and then along with the discounted price they show that you could get 50% cashback on a soundbar.

I then went to look at the details of the offer on the linked provided, which shows this.

As it was such a good offer I went and bought a TV and SoundBar. 

 

After they arrived I went to completed the claim form but was unable to do so as it wouldn’t accept my serial numbers (I don’t think this is related, just an issue with the website that may have been fixed by now). I contacted the promotion support team and they asked me to submit details of the claim via email.   

 

They rejected my claim and replied quoting the following T&C at me: 

“This Promotion is only available to end-users (e.g. not to any reseller or business) and is not available in conjunction with any other offer.” 

They said as I had received a discount on my order it constituted “another offer”. 

 

I could understand if I had used some sort of voucher code to get the discount – I didn’t, I just added two discounted items directly from the website. The offer is clearly advertised with the discounted price for the TV. 

If this is the case it means that it is impossible to get this offer with any discount applied and therefore via accessing this website via  StudentBeans. I’m sure it is false advertising especially and it effectively enticed me to buy the soundbar using an offer that was not available to me. 

 

I decided to complain to the Samsung Store about this and they implied that the offer should be available and escalated to a senior team. I think this went back to the promotion teams. 

 

I got another response from them today saying that as I got more than 10% discount (10% is a normal amount for a student discount) this counts as “another offer”. I got 25% off the TV and 30% off the soundbar but how was it possible to know this was excluded. There is no way to not buy at these prices via the website. 

 

Gone back to the Samsung Store and they are now saying the same thing. How is it obvious for the T&C that this offer is not available? How it obvious that 10% is ok more is not! 

 

Just to make it clear I have also posted a video on YouTube of the step I went through to purchase the items. I also sent this to the promotion team and the Samsung store support team.

This has left a really sour taste in my mouth. The TV and soundbar are both amazing but I’m unable to enjoy either as I feel like I have been duped. 

 

I’m not really sure how to proceed or if there is anything I can do. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I went for HW-Q90R and it will end up costing £455 when I get cashback. It has been approved but you have to wait 30 days for cashback. It was the promotions team who rejected my claim and didn't get anywhere complaining to them. It was the Store Support Team that sorted it all for me and to be fair they were great and never disputed my claim.

 

To be honest I have no idea why my claim was rejected by the promotions team. I went on a couple of other forums and a few people said they had claimed successfully with discounted TV and Soundbar.

 

Just make sure you have screenshots of TV you bought with discount and offer shown together as evidence.

Hi Bob,

 

I had the exactly the same problem so I emailed the promotions team but I've heard nothing back. The automated response stated I should hear back within two working days, it's Wednesday now and this was last Friday. I'm beginning to believe the promotion was a con, it certainly does not do anything for the reputation  of Samsung for me and I always purchase their products where I can.
