I'm also experiencing the same problem with India today Book Club. I have purchased from India today book club for Rs.764 but the gift of adidass bag and round trip air tickets not given to me. when i go through the web site as per their advice to register and collect the gifts, there is nothing to register and everything is fake. after that i've contacted customer support for help and submitted all the invoice and unique codes also but there is only mail reply regarding provide everything to collect gifts on behalf of me but till date i 've nothing received. It is going more than 3months. Neither travel vouchers have been recived neither adidas shoes have been delivered. Its all fake. Friends be careful, India today book club is making us fool.

Cheating Customers - India Today Book Club

I was a customer of India Today Book Club since 3 years. I Used to purchase books from them. Each time they provide a gift with every set of books which we buy but to tell the fact these gifts dont apply at all. if you try to redeem it. It will never happen.I have called the customer care(01140502424) and informed them too. they never helped and sometimes they just disconnect the call. They just put these advt to attract customers.Never believe INDIA TODAY BOOK CLUB. The quality of paper(ie BOOKs) is like the paper of a rough book(recycled one).
till now i got one gift from(i.e reebok bag).They have informed that it is a brand piece of reebok costing 400.I'm not blind to distinguish the difference between brand item and local item. the bro took that bag to carry his sports items for an athletic meet next day by god's grace he had two pieces of the bag. this in turn will spoil the name of brand company reebok too.
I called them to block all the SMS's and emails they send to ma number and to id but they dont do that too. They just want to irritate the customer. Very soon i'm going to show they how a customer will react to the false promotion given by a company.
My message to all people is

NEVER TRUST INDIA TODAY BOOK CLUB AND NEVER BUY ANY BOOKS FROM THEM

regards,

cheater itbc - India Today Book Club

sir, I ordered reebok shoes etc.by phone .I recieved through v.p.p..when I opened the parcel the product was different.I complained about it they asked me to return the parcel ,I did the same but I could nor reciev my money, I have written everybody since than. Is there anybody who can help me?
 
I have ordered one set of Reebok shoes and sandals. but received two parcels and they have deducted twice in my credit card, stating first punching of credit card number not successful, so they asked me punch again.
So i refused to accept the parcel from courier. This was happend in the month of May 2009. i have made complaint through their customer care(total useless). till today, my money not credited back.
Now a days, Customer care (delhi number, not toll free), no body answers after 30 minutes on music.
Please do not buy any items from this shop. Some times, customer care executives half of the way, used diconnect the call intentionally.

My humble request is, get back my money and create awareness about this company promotions.

Thanking you

ITBC Is cheater - India Today Book Club

I had ordered a harddisk on 29th Jan 2010. For which the money was charged to my acct on 2nd of Feb 2010. With that hard disk, I was supposed to get free reebok wallet, keychain, watch and the holiday/airfare.

On 12th Feb I was told that the order is in process.

No delivery till now. When I asked the status on 24th Feb 2010, I was told that the product is out of stock and they are refunding the money. Still no refund as well.

But when I saw on BagItToday on 3rd March 2010, the hard disk (which is supposed to be out of stock) is still being sold. Many more are going to get conned and frustrated just because of this junk of a company.

Seems like ITBC is trying to lure some customer in buying that product, to refund me my money.

Dont fall for such gimmicks.

cheating - indiatodaybookclub

I fell prey to the ads by India Today Book Club & placed orders for a Samsung Mobile Handset & a Fitness Kit. I was promised a free holiday voucher worth Rs.5000/ for a couple for 2N3D anywhere in India & a one way airline ticket on purchases. However, after I received the packages, I tried to log onto their promo page but the page itself was not available on the internet but instead I was directed to the complaint page automatically where I came across 100s of similar complaints from all over India that the India Today Book Club has either sent them faulty products or not responded to their complaints or same as my experience. Moreover, their customer care tel no. is attended by a stooge who does not have any useful information about their operations & is instructed only to irritate the callers.
I wish to ask them a simple question : YOU ARE A REPUTED PUBLISHING HOUSE. WHY DO YOU INDULGE INTO THIS SELLING FIELD WHERE YOU DON'T HAVE EXPERTISE OR BRAINPOWER?

ITBC | Fraudsters and Cheats | Proposal for a Class Action Suit

Hi,

I am Sujata Garimella.

Like you, I too trusted the India Today name and had ordered stuff from ITBC. My experience was awful. I did not get what I ordered for. I did not get the promised "extras". And I did not get any solution either.

This whole nightmare started in September 2009 for me.

To top it all they still keep calling me.

I plan to sue them for Rs. 10 lakhs. I have started an action against them and would like more victims of ITBC's dirty tricks to join in because there is a lot of strength in numbers.
Please click the link below and join in.

http://voip-india.webs.com/itbcsuethem.htm

Like you and me there are lakhs of other victims of ITBC's malpractices. There is a link in the web page above that will take you to a list of the sites on which people have complained. I request you to take the time and send at least 50 of them this mail and ask them to send it forward.

That way we can reach the maximum number of people in the shortest period of time and quickly initiate legal proceedings.

I hope we have 10, 000 people and then, if not getting the money we can at least ensure that the company closes down.

Looking forward to take up arms together with you.

Sujata
