Hello people, my new sky+ deals going wrong already, I forgot to use quidco. Meaning I miss out on £105 plus people here at hduk think my deal is rubbish. The men came out today and plugged the box in literally took 3 seconds as a dish and lead was already present from the previous tennent. However my viewing card has not arrived and won't be for another week. If I cancel now , will I still be a new customer? revised with pic this is my status.... with sky I mean. nothings claimed yet except the box as the engineers been. sorry I don't know anything about sky. I'm new.

Nothing you can do about quidco without taking a new one online. Doubt you can cancel and still be considered new. As for the free T.V why would you not be getting that since you are a new customer?
#4
I think you will have to just suck it up and miss the quidco cash back. You have 14 days to cancel as long distance selling so you could cancel but remember everything will have to go back including the TV.

If you order anytime soon after the cancellation you may or may not get new customer status and remember quidco is not guaranteed.

Even though I haven't received my viewing card?

​I am once everything goes through. just noticed everyone's got a better deal than me and forgetting quidco. .. I'm new to frugal I used to be frivolous but I want to get engaged :(

Your contract and billing will not start unit your sky viewing card is active

I would call them up and say that you wish to cancel as you have realised that the deal you have got is not as good as other people's, be prepared with the details of the better deal that you want.

I'm sure that they will switch you onto the better deal if it means keeping you as a customer, you are still within your cooling off period so are in a strong position. If you want the Quidco money as well, ask sky to credit your account with the equivalent amount. You could always use the threat of going to virgin or BT instead, as you would be eligible for Quidco through them

You have 14 days to cancel from order date but you may liable for any installation charges. You would also need to sign up with another household name/account too if you want to try again.

It's what happens when you use Capital letters indiscriminately.

You were happy with the deal when you signed up, so I wouldn't worry - as for forgetting the cashback - I am sure everyone here has done it.

As previously mentioned you are within your 14 days cooling off, so call them up, tell them you changed your mind because of the cost and you can get a better deal at Talktalk, I suspect they will knock something off.
#13
Dam it just read these after activation with a rude Indian man that kept arguing with me till I gave him a 9 for customer service.

sorry I'm dyslexic and new to all this I'm tryna get engaged give me a break :(

#25

#26
I've been invited to mensa would you like to see my invitation? you think your smart but your not I'm smarter I'm just not rude and refuse to get drawn into petty arguments I'm too busy being kind and happy ... loving I'm huge on love and humanity.. . there's actually a splice here so many good people helping each other on this site. Also just some self obsessed smart **** being mean to someone with difficulties and disability. pretty messed up. my disability is in my brain. An over firing medulla Oblangata... to name 1 ... I'm still very sharp and bright near genius so il keep striving for that score..... mensa is interested as I'm only 8 quote points from genius despite my disabilitys? SO ALL I CAN SAY IS JEALOUSY GETS YOU NOWHERE.... I ASK HELP N GIVE IT BACK.... This is the principal of reciprocity and good will so..... I've no idea why mean people answer. I talk to kind people and ignore the mean one's.

discriminate me that's fine il allow it had it all my life...however now you are discrinatinf against people with learning difficulties and disability and now upset that Dr gives me meds.
it's anxiety and bone and muscle pain relief it's for not that it's any of your business. ;)

I have a personality disorder
anxiety disorder
ptsd
muscle and nerve damage
ulcerative colitis
and
I. b.s
dyslexia


I live a fully independent life and have an amazing role and beautiful girlfriend and am well above average attractiveness myself....

I have no reason to let any of your silly jibes hurt me. However you are bullies and judging aswell.

hmmmm mm

pick on me I can take it but leave others alone....

Nothing worse than a bully.

10% of people with my disorder commit hiery ciery by their early 20s so I'm a lean mean survival machine.

ptsd you live in survival mode always.....

so thank you and **** you to the 2 ignorant jokers that were trying to bring me down
it hasn't worked and you are in fact the Losers here. :D
