has samSUNG just SUNG her last SONG?

Samsung 40 Inch M series

Have any readers, in the last five months, purchased a Samsung LCD/Plasma television during their buy-one-get-one free promo? I bought the sleek LA40M81BDX (above) in February from The Good Guys in Maribyrnong and Samsung had promised to deliver the tellies within six to eight weeks. I say that’s hogwash, as we’re now approaching the middle of May, and it’s almost 11 weeks.

Confirmation email aside, I’ve not received any phonecalls, follow up emails or mail whatsoever. I say, how hard is it to send my free 19″ telly to my doorstep?

Granted, it was a good deal. For $1973 inc. gst, I got myself a relatively large LCD television and a free 19″. Now that’s a steal.

But steal or not, it’s still a restless wait for the Samsung contact that’s never gona come. Or is it?

Yoohoo…anyone working in Samsung here? Get your fucking act together already! My bedroom looks empty and rather forlorn looking without a shiny screen looking back at me.

    Samsung has been rather lazy with their promos recently. We participated in something similar (it’ was to do with getting $300 cashback after buying certain models of their TVs). That was roughly 3 weeks ago now and we have received nothing at all, not even an email to say that it’s all being processed! Granted unlike your case, they didn’t actually say how long this promo thing will take effect but geez, if you didn’t want to in the first place, don’t make promotions!

    There’s a whole lot of people who went for this offer, just see this thread on DTVForums: http://www.dtvforum.info/index.php?showtopic=58804

    But 5 months? Maybe you should call them up?
