India Today Book Club — Unable to claim free gifts

62 Reviews
I have paid an amount of Rs 2598/- for 7 DVDs. I have recieved the cds and one free gift. But not complete set as said in phone while purchasing. Invoice number ORA09004629. In the pack it is mentioned that i have to claim for the remaining gifts, But the website is always saying "You have made incorrect entries. Kindly check and enter once again !!!". I called customer care 5 times and every time it is said that the problem will be rectified in another one hour from yesterday. So far i dint find any progress. Request you to check once what the problem is and hhow to proceed further.

Thank you

India Today — Unable to claim free gift

I had won a Free Gift Voucher No. F61489.
However the site doesn't open the final page, to enter Personal details and Address/Payment Details.
Making it Impossible to claim the gift.
The gift Voucher was for Rs3301.
I have received my books parcel vide invoice No.ORA080244320 against order No.OGA080235333 dated7.12.2008.My membership No. is mentioned in the invoice as ITBC08774925.On the basis of instructions contained in a seperate sheet sent with the invoice I tried to log on to the web but could not connect. I telephoned at 40502424 and I was given a unique number and advised to try again. I tried again but failed.I again talked over the phone and I was given another web address i.e., I tried again but still I am unable to register my free gift claim.Please send mr proper guidance at my E mail address to help me claim the free gift.
I had ordered a pack of 4 music CDs which was delivered in Oct. None of these CDs work. There was a letter offering free gifts for which I had to log on to a site and key in certain details mentioned on the invoice. Its been two months and endless no of calls, but there seems to be some problem and I am told repeated by the customer care center that the unique code needs to be activated and will take 48 hours.
After numerous 48 hours (More than 48 days!!!) I keep hearing the same story and when I ask t speak to a superisor I am told my the exec Sarabjit that the supervisors are busy as well and are not available to talk. Shouldnt the work of the supervisors be to attend to customers and not sit cozily on their chairs not taking calls from customers.
I have never seem such disorganization where the company cannot put their act together in 2 months nor can they attend to customers!!
