    Change to Advanced Exchange Program

    Hi,

    The supervisor was right it was a promotion for the Advance Exchange(AE) during the initial phase of the release. AE is an expedited service which now cost $10 for Kinect. This service is a premium service hence the fee. If you wish to get your Kinect repaired
    for free you can choose the standard repair, as far as I know the repair in the US should not be longer than about 2 weeks (from door-to-door or drop off point) of course the maximum is up to 28 days. That's been said the AE is a premium and as such it costs
    extra. I hope this info helps you understand why you were asked to pay $10 for AE.

    PS.: Console AE is cost $14.95 extra on top of the hold on the credit card.

    Hey there Cah Cah Expand the Advanced Exchange Program to include PSUs and controllers!!! :)



    Sorry to hear that you are displeased with a portion of the service. It sounds as though you have no actual issue that you need help with and are placing some feedback here, so my advice at this point would be to post in the Feedback Forum Section. That
    is the best place to put forward requests.



    I hope this helps.

    Many thanks,

    Service Request taking too long for XBox One accessory replacement!

    I forgot that I could not have exchanged at Best Buy because they had it sold out. Now, the 3rd way of release will come by christmas and yet I have yet to experience the console! what about the other guys that had the Advanced Exchanged program eligibility!
    Once again, that is not fair! Well I finally have a return shipment for my PSU and the damage as a loyal customer has already been done.

    Microsoft and their Advanced Exchange program

    I too am in a similar predicament. After hours of troubleshooting online with a representative, they deemed it was necessary for me to send the xbox one in for repair. I was kind of upset that it would take 14 days so they offered the advanced exchange option
    telling me I would receive a "new" xbox one. I quickly agreed but after talking with the representative I found out that it was going to be used. After a couple of more hours online with the representative and her manager I finally caved and told them to ship
    me the refurb.

    Then after leaving the xbox one unplugged for over 12 hours it miraculously started working again. I called that day to cancel the service order and I was informed that the refurb was already on its way to being shipped. I was informed to send the refurb
    back and I would not be charged so I declined the package from fed ex.

    19 days after the console was delivered back to Redmond, WA, I recieved a $424 charge from them for the console.

    At first they wanted to claim that I had received the xbox one and that I had not sent one back. After telling the guy to enter my tracking number into FedEx's website, and not use whatever system they use to track their service information, they guy was
    on board with me and said that they would refund me. I was told it would take 14 days. I was very upset that their mistake had caused me to miss out on some of my vacation that I had been on out of the country (I was using the hotel receptionists phone) so
    I asked to speak with a manager. They guy told me I could not speak with a manager, but after relaying to him how much of an inconvenience they have caused me he put me on hold without saying a word.

    After about ten minutes on hold with no way of knowing if anyone would ever pick up the phone I again, I was finally able to speak with a manager. His reason for the charge was that the process had been broken by sending back the same console. I told him
    this was unacceptable because they had the console 19 days prior to the charge, but he insisted nothing could be done.

    Finally, I recieved an email telling me that the funds would be refunded but it would take up to 30 days.

    Needless to say, unless I can get some help here, I am going to Playstation and Linux or Apple and I will never look back. This whole situation has made me lose my faith in Microsoft and makes me realize that have worse customer service than Comcast.

    Microsoft and their Advanced Exchange program

    I've had a similar problem as others in this thread. Basically I shipped back an Advanced Exchange Xbox One Console and now they're saying they still can't find it - 3 months later. So they're charging my credit card for the console. I don't have the
    tracking number, but can't they just look it up from the pre-paid shipping label? Has anyone had any recourse with this problem. I know we can cancel the credit card and block the charge, but then I'm assuming Microsoft will just send this charge to collections
    and our credit will get ***...

    Advanced exchange program question

    As someone who went through the same thing, and knows someone that works there, let me lay it out for you.

    When you send your component back, it gets scanned in at the service center loading dock, i.e. they scan the code on the shipping label and that tells them to shuffle it off to the "Kinect department". They will pop it open, verify the serial number and
    then update the repair order. This whole process, from the point it's received on the dock and then checked in the appropriate warehouse, can take anywhere from 4-7 days.

    Now the actual charge, even though they tell you 15 days, doesn't actually go through until about 30 days. MS knows that things happen and they give you a lot of leeway. The posts from others on the forums are just one side of the convo. And that 15 days
    doesn't even start until you receive the new unit, so you have until 4/17 before you even get the warning email, which you'll probably never see because they'll have it checked in long before that.

    And good on you remember to get your return shipping tracking number. With that in your possession you're golden. Good luck, not that you need it. :)
