Today in the post we had an offer of 15% off our subscription if we took up the offer.

I logged into the address given as I wanted to see how it would apply in our case as we have the movies on discount at present.

 

There was a button that you needed to click and I thought in doing so I woudl be able to get more information and how mcuh the discount would be. T

 

 

o see this info I had to log in which I did and on logging in got a message that I had now got the discount and was locked into a 12 month contract and it seems there is no way to cancel this as we do not want to be locked into any contract.

 

Seems a very underhand way of locking people into contracts as no "Confirm" button or being able to view the discount before confirming.

That is correct, but you are unable to contact them by email so looks like I will need to phone at a premium rate.

I realise the above, but normally before any changes are made Sky ask you to confirm after you see how the montly subscription changes. How else can you see any savings that you may get? At present we are on 1/2 price movies saving £8 a month and al I wanted to see was the if the discount would work for us. Apparently not. The good news is that I have managed to get them to cancel the con.

You can't make this up. After sending Sky a cancellation email, Sky emailed back stating thyat the offer had nto bene applied to my account. A week later we get an email thanking us for taking up the offer and that we were locked into a 12 month contract. I emailed them back attaching the previous emails querying why I was now locked into a 12 month contract. This is the reply;

I understand you have received an email from Sky stating that the 15% off on your Sky TV Package has been applied on your account and you wish to cancel the offer as you do not wish to be in a re-contract period.

I have checked your account and see that the offer of 15% off on your Sky TV Package for 12 months has been applied and your Sky Account is in a re-contract period from 03/09/2016 to 03/09/2017.

I wish to inform you that there is a 31 days cooling off period to cancel this offer and we need verbal confirmation in order to make the changes. I request you to contact our Customer Support Team as they will be in a better position to do the needful.

Click here to visit our My Sky area on Sky.com to view your Sky Account details.

You can also use the Interactive Services on your Sky Box, by pressing 'Interactive' button on your Sky Remote and selecting My Sky. To be able to use this service you will need a compatible Sky Box that is connected to either your broadband or a working landline depending on your box model.

 

Why do they still need verbal confirmation if Sky has received in writing by email a cancellation notice which was sent within hours of the offer being applied? Surely in the eyes of the law an email requesting cancellation is sufficient especially as the offer was done Online and within 31 days?
