Hi - on December 2, 2019 I received an email from Sprint with this message "Your submission for the Sprint/LG G8X Mastercard & Dual Screen Gift-with-Purchase Offer has been approved. Your $200 Mastercard will be delivered to you via email within 8 - 12 weeks at this email address"
It is now week 13, I haven't received anything. I sent an email to the promo admin and received this response "Final Sprint verification will determine which gift and promotion your phone qualifies for.
Hi. Good morning. This looks to be a direct LG offer. For questions or escalations, you can contact LG @ firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 1-844-416-9110.
Thanks for you advice. I emailed them again, and got the exact same generic, uninformative message. I called that number during business hours (10am today, Monday) and they have an automated message saying it is outside of business hours and they don't accept voicemail.
Do you have any other advice? You may have more influence in obtaining a response from your business partner than I will have.
LG is not very helpful. I emailed them again, got the exact same message with this phrase is red and highlighted "While every effort will be made to deliver your Gift(s) as noted above, there could be delays resulting from unforeseen inventory situations, high demand, shipping delays or other force majeure events."
Seems like 12 weeks notice should have prevent "unforeseen events."
Sprint has more influence on their business partner LG than I do as individual customer, and this does reflect poorly on Sprint since the order came via Sprint and not LG - it was a Sprint enticement to sign a contract.
Can you please contact LG and see if you can get any insight?
@Captcha, I'm afraid we don't have a way to do this. The offer is fulfilled through LG and customers need to follow up with them.
Today I received the following reply from the 3rd party handling the promotion for for LG >>
The problem lies with the $200 Mastercards that aren't being sent to us. I got the dual screen, weeks ago in fact. The promotion was for both a dual screen and a $200 "virtual" Mastercard.
Which is supposed to be emailed in 8 to 12 weeks. 2 days from now it will be 17 weeks since I received the "You are approved for both" email. Both are handled by the same company for LG, but apparently require 2 different verifications. They say SPRINT is doing the proverbial dragging of the feet on the latter.
At this point in time, I'm done being told to contact this company or that company. It starts HERE!!! and it ends HERE!!!
It's easy to pass the buck in today's connected world, but good customer service can keep a poor company in business. Bad customer support can take any company down, and the way these promos are being handled is unfortunately bad.
Alright. I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page or if I was way off. You can send me a Private Message with the tracking number and we can go from there.
