Anyone else receive an email from NOW TV about their 50% off Black Friday for Cinema + Entertainment deals for 12 months worth of passes to each? It looks like a really good deal, and I was was very interested in forking over the £99 today to secure it.
Click the link in the email ... oh dear. Apparently I'm "not eligible" for the offer.
Poor form, NOW TV - you really shouldn't be emailing your customers about offers they are excluded from.
There's a few things that prevent you from taking up the Black Friday offer for existing customers eg broadband/Combo user, billed via Vodafone or Apple or you have current offers with longer than 30 days left to run. If you think none of those apply to you then you should be able to take up the offer, try clicking direct from
@Andy Actually, I think I figured it out. The email was targeted to an old, dormant account that I don't use, but the email came in to my normal inbox. From memory, though, that dormant account should have marketing emails set to opt out, and I've not received any emails for that account in a *long* time prior to this one. If I can remember the login details for the dormant account, I'll double check the opt in/out status on that account.
This account is definitely not eligible (I'm still in the discount period from signing up to the combo package).
I was hoping to buy the 2 month black Friday deal, to cover the pre-post Christmas period, but it seems that the offer is only open to existing customers.
It doesen't really seem fair on a 'non contract' product, I can't really see how after a voucher has lapsed you are an existing customer?
Please tell me if this can be worked around.
Welcome to the forum. The 2 month deals are for new customers only. The deal for existing customers is 12 months cinema and entertainment for £99 which you can find here
Or or as an alternative you could consider buying a gift card for NOW TV from Game (online and emailed immediately or in-store), PayPal Digital Gifts, Argos, Amazon, Currys, PC World and a few other places. Prices are
Entertainment - 3 months - £15
Entertainment - 5 months - £25
Movies - 2 months - £15
Movies - 3 months - £25
Sky Sports Week Pass - £10
Black Friday offers don't seem to apply to existing (loyal) customers it seems! Unless youa re prepared to be upsold and buy a bigger package!
New customers get 50% off Cinema or 50% of Entertainment.
Current customers get... well, nothing, but the same full price. No loyalty. Just other black friday offers, (like Amazon Fire Sticks at £25, Amazon Prime at £70 per year and Netflix at £7pm - makes me wonder!).
Come on NowTV - think about us long term loyal custmers too!
For any existing customers who are interested, or who missed the offer during Black Friday, NOW TV have the £99 for 12 months of entertainment and cinema offer back on.
