I've just phoned Sun Eductaional Services (UK) and have been told that the discount isn't available in this country.
The UK paying more for exactly the same product as foreigners, for no explicable reason - surely not!!! LOL
No - hang on, don't tell me - 'market forces' prevent them from offering it here :-)

I thought of buying 2 vouchers this month end in the UK, when my paycheck comes through, but now I have changed my mind.
SUN(UK) is very strange indeed! Looks like they don't like more people getting certified.

I've started to study for the web component developer exam, but I'm seriously considering not bothering now, you can probably tell why from the sarcasm of my previous post.
What's even more annoying is the fact that the website page with the discount on it states "offer available worldwide". surely illegal advertising if it obviously isn't.

I bought a SCWCD exam certificate from Sun UK before the 30th June discount deadline but did not receive a discount on my credit card payment as others on the forum have experienced.

On querying the matter via email I was informed that "this promotion is not valid in the UK" and therefore I was not entitled to a 25% refund.

As the sun.com website promotion stated clearly "Offer valid worldwide". I wrote back to Sun UK and asked again (politely) for a refund. I also asked if I should get The Trading Standards Authority involved as the promotion was extremely misleading if individual countries could opt out.

Sun UK agreed to honour the discount "as a gesture of goodwill" and gave me an apology which warmed the cockles of my heart.

Anyone from the UK who bought a voucher expecting to receive the discount and did not receive it... don't let sun UK fob you off. Write a firm but polite email and demand a refund.

as already mentioned, the offer was NOT available worldwide. SUN's website said that it was, but this wasn't true. The offer was NOT available in the UK.

A "worldwide discount" is exactly what it says it is.

I got no problem getting the discount in Macedonia. It is odd that only UK customers are having trouble. Maybe they should try another Sun representative...

Regards,
Ice

This is the 4th post I'm seeing it today(across java ranch by diff people), which is in some language, other than english.


Moderators should really step in and give 1 or 2 warnings, and then remove the post, if the same person is still doing it, then his/her name should be removed from javaranch.




hi,

i am in turkey and got the 25% discount. Sun in Turkey asked Sun-USA for the discount.

hope this helps.


Few days back I just mailed SUN India, enquiring about the voucher price for SCWCD, I got the reply as 150% (7200 INR), with no discount



Anyways...

Bye bye

Hello "steinvommars"-

There is actually one additional rule, and that is our policy on display names. Please take a moment to read it, and adjust yours so that it conforms to it. You can do that right here. Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter.
