Been trying to talk to someone at Virgin about leaving and exploring the option of retention deals. Have called twice and was told I'd receive a message on my mobile phone regarding retention deals but no message has been received, have checked that Virgin have the right number on file. The person I spoke to on the phone said that a "web team" could perhaps offer a better deal or longer contract term at better rates but I can't seem to access this team! She said that "phone team" could only offer a modest discount with 12 months contract.
Really getting quite frustrated with Virgin Customer Service here.
yup that's exactly the experience I've had. Called Virgin twice, spoke to the same person. Two different quotes given, said that I would receive a text message, checked that she had the right number and still nothing! Then was told that the web team could do different deals as she was part of the phone team and prices were higher. When asked how I could access this, she said go online to the Virgin Media website...which I did and encountered a bot chat that pointed me back to the same number!
Thanks for replying. That's exactly what I did..twice!! Spoke to the same person I reckon as well. Two different renewal quotes given and was told that I would simply need to wait for a text message to activate the deals. No text message was received, even checked that she had the right number. During discussion, I pointed out that I would consider signing a longer contract if a lower price could be offered, she said that the maximum contract length was 12 months. Pointed out that the Virgin Media website has 18 month contracts to which she said that as part of the "phone team" she could only do 12 months. I asked to speak to someone else and she said try the "web team". Can't access this web team! Would appreciate any assistance. It's so frustrating. Never had such problems with Sky! Quite tempted to go back!
