Hewlett - Packard — misldeading cashback offer
Check this email trail out - hp misled customers that they will receive a $100 cashback on purchase of a printer. Sent with *original* documents (And received confirmation this was received and accepted) in january 2008, and no response still waiting in september. The call centre was hopeless. I have never been treated with such poor service. Seems 'cash back' offers from hp are the lowest priority on their list of services, as a necessary evil, to be avoided and squashed down no matter how much they mislead customers.
Customer id (Can provide on request)
I spoke with the call centre (After being on hold for an hour) and was told that there is nothing they can do, this is closed, it was only for a $20 cashback, the receipt was never received, etc etc.
This is totally unacceptable and we have been misled. When we purchased the printer there were big bright letters displayed everywhere that we would obtain a $100 cash back. We have complied with all the terms and conditions as indicated by 'julia' on the 15th of january this year.
We have received *no* response, *no* communication, and on top of this the operator suggested that they "prefer customers get in touch with them to chase these things up", which I have, several times over this week (See email trail).
If a response is not received by close of business today, I will lodge a formal complain with consumer affairs.
I've had enough and we are being treated very poorly.
We have been misled.
I will also send this to the relevant complaints department in hp for follow-up, including the proof of purchase and original documents which are attached to this email.

Is anyone actually reading these emails?
I will go to consumer affairs if I don't receive a response today.
This is ridiculous.
