I signed up as well, by phone to get the free minutes/txt's. Also found this page (https://www.slingshot.co.nz/TheBetterBundle.aspx) on the Slingshot website, so should hopefully get 2GB more data per month as well.

kyhwana2: I assume you select the $20/month contract plan when going through the online signup form too, with no added extras?


In order get this out quickly, the free minutes and txt's are only available via calling us - as per the standard offer at the moment. https://www.slingshot.co.nz/MobilePlans.aspx

Best thing is to call us in that respect.



Uh-oh.

So if I have applied online thinking I would get the texts and mins, I would have to cancel and then call and re-do the appilcation, or can I call and have that sorted out on the application I have made?

Cant call now, just got home and CS closes in 1 min, cant call tomorrow because I am out all day and that BS handsfree law...

That's pretty confusing TBQH as it doesn't say that on the website at all. And it has a signup link on that page where the offer appears.

@Slingshot could you please feedback to your CSR team that there was STILL confusion about the offer tonight around 7-8pm?

I know your team were extremely busy but it's not really excusable for them to be unclear on the terms of the offer when most of their calls were surely to do with the offer itself.

Being the careful person I am, I repeatedly asked for confirmation of the offer details because I didn't have confidence it was being applied correctly. We were at one stage told that it would be a free Nokia 2630 phone (yes I understand we CAN have this phone if we choose instead), and when it came to choosing the plan the CSR didn't appear to understand the concept of free 20 minutes/100 free txts per month.

Anyway, I could sympathise with your new signup desk as it was obviously running hot tonight. Overall good job.

well I clicked the link from the deal linked off the homepage, so if I dont get the free texts and mins then i will be sending it back to them as thats what I thought I was applying for.

I am confident they will get it sorted out tho.

I have had a confusing email from them tho.

Hi Richard Malcolm-Smith,

Your new SIM card and welcome letter has been shipped and will arrive within the next two days by courier!

The tracking number is xxxxxxxxxxx

If your new mobile phone doesn’t arrive within that period, please visit the Courier Post website - they have a great track and trace feature.

For any other questions just give us a call on 0800 89 2000.

Am I getting a sim card or a phone sent to me, what is that tracking number for exactly, will the phone arrive seperately from the sim?

I am none the wiser from that email. Might want to address that...

I expect the deal on the website.Talked to customer services and they had no idea.The statement from the slingshot guy in this forum just made it confusing.You should not have to ring customer services to get extra stuff(20 mins calling/100 text) when you can do it all on the web site.

Sorry... what was that? If you sign up online you don't get the 100 free texts and 20 mins included?? You have to ring customer service?? 


Correct, if you've signed up online please pm me your account number and I'll sort it out.

Agreed.

In this respect we're changing the offer page to reflect the current situation - you need to call us to get the full offer.

This is all being cleaned up today, appologies for the confusion.

This has been updated now. Have no idea why the mobile phone is mentioned... That email is specifically about your SIM being shipped.

There is a seperate email for the mobile phone.

Slingshot: It seems like it's a browser issue. IE seems to work ok, but not firefox..

Working on a fix now.


Sorted.

Let me know if that issue occurs again.

thanks for the feedback.

Ok thats good that it will all be sorted.

FWIW, there were 2 courier deliverys in the place they leave them thismorning, a big one thats obviously a phone and a envelope which is the sim.

Lots of effort gone into making some nice courier packaging.

Uhoh I have ended up with a nokia 2630 not a 2730 somehow. Dont know how that happened. Unless it was because I signed up online and not over the phone as the site now required.

Dont' open the packaging and contact the call centre to advise.

We'll re-ship the correct one.
