India Today Book Club — Free diamond voucher for 5000+tupperware along with the encyclopedia

Hi,

I had placed an order with Indiatoday book club on seeing their advertisement that for Rs.499/-, they will give us 5000 rs. gift voucher and tupperware. I placed the order on 25th June'2008 and I got a message on the screen saying that the delivery wil be done within 2-3 weeks.

But till now I have not got any delivery from them. Moreover, they have given a mail id for queries and I have sent mails to that mail id requesting them to give the status of the order, but no reply has been received till now. I am seriously worried.

Is there any way to cancel the order and get the money back or is there any phone numbers where I can contact and get the status.

I think seeing all these complaints, we should go to consumer court for this otherwise, these type of companies will not learn the lesson.

Please help me.

Dear vsir,
I have purchased books, CDs and promised of gift vouchers for hoildays, Rs.5000.00 worth gift voucher for diamonds, Adidas bag, Shoes, etc.
So i contacted the no given in the letter, to which they directed me to go to web site " www.offers.indiatodaybookclub.com/greatoffers.htm. But the site was not opening. I think they are cheating public by this gimmic. If really they are offering Gifts, they should have send the same along with the Purchase items, instead of all this tamacha giving unique 19 digits no, login web id etc.
