Pending order from 23/11

2: Seeker

Hi everyone! 


I would like to share with you my story, 


I was looking for some nice deals on Black Friday in Hotukdeals and I found it, Vodafone [Removed]was offering an amazing deal, Note 9 with 80GB of data for [Removed]. I said to myself, that is what I was looking for! 
I did place the order, and I received confirmation email says '' .. .your order will be processed manually for 1 working day...''. That was fine, from one day it becomes 2 weeks, 


Over two weeks I was following website and social media checking what is going now. They were extremely busy, which is understandable but after two weeks (11/12/2108) I have got email says that Vodafone has some problem with their system and they want to offer some other deals in other company. I was a bit upset because of waiting time and unprofessional behaviour. 


I decided to contact Vodafone, I went thru online chat, explained all situation and Vodafone said that they cannot help me in my situation but they can offer me a similar deal, so I said that great, Vodafone is really professional and known how to treat customers. They connect me to the lady who was dealing with ''joining Vodafone'', I have asked her to go thru all chat for a better understanding of my situation. After a while, she said that she contacted her team and they can offer me the same deal. I said to myself, WOW! that what means professionalism. I was really happy, she did ask me for my address and then she said that the order will come tomorrow.  Then she asked me what else I can do for you, I have asked for a confirmation email and she said that I will receive soon and the chat suddenly shut.


I never got the confirmation email and also she never asked me for my email and other information which was a bit strange for me.  But I said let me try to contact again to see if all is correct. Since yesterday the chat is busy and doesn't let me in.  


I was looking for a chat transcript but couldn't find it. I have got only part of a chat. See below.

Jatin: Thanks Daniel for the help
Jatin: just a moment
Daniel: Of course
Jatin: Daniel, we can understand the perception and we agree with you that it should have not happened and that you should have been informed earlier than that and believe me we really respect that you want to connect to us and we also want the same but i am afraid that if you would have contacted us directly without involving the third party in the purchase, i can guarantee you would have gotten the contract but as Vodafone does not regulate the third party, i am afraid that i can't comment on what went wrong. It is the third party who can give the answer to that.
Daniel: Well, for next time I will know, but I thought you as a Vodafone, you are choosing wisely who is representing your offers.
Daniel: Anyway, is there any chance to keep wolf full and sheep alive?
Daniel: Or Vodafone cannot help me at all?
Jatin: Daniel, i can't promise that you will get the same deal but we have a dedicated team who can help you with almost the similar deal.
Jatin: i will advise to give it a try.
Jatin: i am sure that you will get some great deals.
Daniel: Understand, I am with other company almost 6 years and I am a bit unhappy of their service for customers which are with them so long
Jatin: Daniel, we do understand and that i why i would advise that, if you could spare me a few minutes i can connect you to the dedicated team so that you can get the almost similar deal.
Daniel: I will appreciate that, thank you
Jatin: anytime for you🙂
Jatin: please stay connected.
