help , cannot activate $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit

Answered

I am at silver tier, and I use the Activate your credit button on the telstra plus page to try to activate the credit, but after I have clicked it, it redirect me to a page written - Sorry We were unable to identify you as you have no offers associated with your Telstra ID. Please add a service to your Telstra ID via Telstra 24x7 MyAccount under account settings. Once you have added a service to your Telstra ID, please login again.. I have asked live chat and they have no idea why, and some of them said I cannot use my credit points cos I am using prepaid service. Can anyone help please?

Have you logged in to Telstra TV Box Office on your Telstra TV (or through the app on your phone) first, using your Telstra ID?

Re: help , cannot activate $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit

Me too (Gold status- so this error doesn’t discriminate;-) I wonder if it has anything to do with Telstra IDs. For some reason I have accumulated 3 Telstra IDs over the years. These are xxxxxxx@telstra.com, xxxxxx@bigpond.com and xxxxxxxx@hotmail.com. They ALL work when I use them to log into my Telstra Account. So I thought I would align all devices (TelstaTV) and accounts (Box Office, Telstra log in) to one of the aforementioned IDs to see if that would work. It didn’t. I have spoken to the Telstra TV people and they seem to think that it is a clashing ID issue but weren’t able to fix it as it is not their area of expertise.

Re: help , cannot activate $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit

I tried changing my Telstra id on the Telstra tv app Box Office , and while it stated it had changed my Telstra id to another one, when I went into settings it was still on the original one.  Finding that I cannot change my id on Box Office.

I also spent an hour today "chatting" to Telstra on line with no results. 

I can sign in with the other id but it still states that I am logged in on the original.  Sigh!!

So I am inclined to agree with you that is an ID issue, as my Telstra plus acct is with the second 'other' id that box office ignores.

Re: help , cannot activate $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit

So I thought I would try to 'activate' my credit one last time before ringing Telstra (or chatting with some poor overworked call centre person) and guess what? It worked. No error message. The Telstra Box Office page opened and allowed me to activate the $110 worth of free movies etc. So I jumped on to my TV and logged in and there it was.......a $110 credit in my TBO account. Not sure why it worked but I guess  my advice to everyone on this thread is just keep trying.

Ok thank you, I apologise this has caused you to wish to move on. 
 

After you submit a complaint you receive a confirmation email shortly-after with your full reference number in the subject line. Sometimes this can go to your spam/junk folder, check your email for this and let me know if you find it. I will use this to contact complaints and request a case manager be assigned to call you as soon as possible.

I also have sent  boxofficesupport@telstratv.com more details with pictures and url etc, and they have replied

Yes, I think that the complaints manager hasn't got a clue what he's doing in respect to your issue.

 

The advice that he has given you is nonsensical in the least.

 

Hopefully Box Office support looks into it properly for you.

Re: help , cannot activate $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit

I sent him a email already, and got a reply that totally ignore 1 of my questions. Clearly that your staff only read part of the email. 

Hi James,

You have changed the wording from "by 31 July 2019" to "credit will only be entertained and available on the 31 July 2019".
Telstra website clearly stated " Activate by 31 July 2019."
Does it mean I have to set ALARM and do it ON 31 July 2019? what happen if it is still not fixed on that day.
Also, you have written, " If we haven't heard from you by 3 July 2019 we’ll consider this matter to be closed without any acceptance or action taken."
Isnt that too early to say that this matter will be closed on 3 July 2019 if you only say the "credit will only be entertained and available on the 31 July 2019".

Did you actually read what I sent you?

I have sent boxofficesupport@telstratv.com more details, and they have replied
Your case has been escalated...

Hi Charmaine,

 

I’m sorry for the confusion, we do use email templates and as a requirement we need to inform you that if we have not receive a response the complaint will be closed.

I do agree with you that it’s too early to tell if the matter will be closed on the 3 July.

For the meantime we’ll leave the complaint open until you are actually able to redeem the credits.

Re: help , cannot activate $75 Telstra TV Box Office credit

Hi all,

I thought I would post that this is still an on-going issue for me even after trying escalate and raise it as an issue since the offer first come out close to the month ago as part of the Telstra Plus program.

 

It seems the issue is pretty wide spread reading through everyone's posts.

 

A work around promised is that they would credit my account $75 and it would appear on the next bill - surprise surprise, get my bill today and nothing was done.

 

I have to say well done to Telstra, completely useless support on something they are offering....  It really  makes  you think twice about remaining with them.

Also had issues purchasing Telstra cheap movie tickets. Seems they don’t work through the app on your phone or tablet. Need to log into a PC. When you click the ‘get tickets’ link the server times out trying to log into Telstra Plus. If it does it then loops back to the start page over and over. Pretty poor to launch a new rewards system for your 24/7 app when nothing works on it 😳.

I'm having the same problem and every time I try to activate the offer I get a error message. I rang Telstra and they didn't know what to do but they gave me this number to call 1300 206 622 and guess what it is disconnected! I just rang the 1800 502 502 number to speak with Telstra box office and their open hours are from 1PM to 10PM! Today is the 31st of July and the final day to redeem this $75 movie credit, I have been trying since May to get it to work and I'm so over it like many others seem to be. Question is did anyone actually get this offer to work in the end?

I made it to activating the credit, only to find my pre 2016 TV is not able to stream to it (its 2015) and then when I tried screen mirroring off a tablet it complained the device wasnt supported in HD but I could re-purchase in SD and it might work.

 

Just give up, its way easier on the stress levels, the process reminds me of Cash back offers from the 1980's which were purposefully designed to be so cumbersome and confusing you would either not use it or fail.
