most disappointing customer service experience

Now I am super afraid of purchasing anything on Dell. The customer service reps are constantly working inefficiently, or not helpful at all. I bought an XBOX bundle, which should be with a Dell gift card. I confirmed that info both by phone and online chat then I did the purchase. However, no gift card is received until now. Then another confusing rep Shaikh Tehseen Moin told me that my purchase is not eligible for this gift card. He said he confirmed and double-checked somewhere. I require talking to a manager and he said he will let his manager call back. Guess what? Yes. No one called back finally.

This is not a rare case, at least to me. I bought TV, laptops, PCs, routers and many tech things for my home, my lab and our department in our university. Dell's customer service is going downwards. Many of they don't know anything but always pretend to be sure about their work. Without any action, Dell will lose more and more customers.

Attached are partial records from the rep of 'gift-card' and the rep of 'no-gift-card'.

Agent (TIP_Paulo DC): "yes, that is correct 🙂 Gift card promotion is included when you purchase the console and no registration is need to qualify for it."
