Hi guys ,

I had purchased the voucher through SAI on MAR26 .They sent a mail the next day stating that it will take them "some" weeks before they can send the voucher. I have still not got it and was planning to take it by the end of april . Any of guys have a clue as to when they could send the voucher .

I made SAI SCWCD purchase on 19 March, i got the same response about it taking even few weeks to get my order processed. I haven't seen my voucher yet, so I think its just how it is.... ;)

Hi Mana,

Welcome to Javaranch.

Well, why don't you guys write to SUN and ask about the status. I think so it takes
almost 3 weeks. My friend told me so, so i am not sure. Better to inquire with SUN
people itself.

Best Wishes,

SUN asked me in their EMAIL not to send them any emails asking for the status cause such emails from all waiting people would make order processing time even longer.

IF your email Id is registered in SAI then you are sure else you are wasting your time.

I think you are new to SAI, it is a program started by SUN in which student can purchase voucher at discount price but after 27 Jan 2010 its is closed by oracle and only existing member can take benift up to 31 Dec 2010 after that i dont know.
Thank you

I was not joking. It was not clear to me what were you talking about/what did you mean by what you wrote.

Hi , i checked whether my university is registered with SAI and when i mailed them they said that was all that was required . Do i need to separately register my E-mail ID with them ..? Since i have already purchased it would they cancel it ..? I have already asked them these questions but do not seem to be getting any response from them.

Thanks and Regds

Have you got your voucher yet? I have been waiting since 19 March so it's been already over a month and I haven't got it.... It's starting to take far too long, I think i'm gonna e-mail them today.

I got response from SUN that they know that it is taking very long but they do really have so huge amount of orders. However they wrote that I should get my voucher within couple of days, so should you, even sooner. Let me know in this topic when you get your voucher

You could call Oracle(who own Sun) on their USA training number and explain the issue. The Oracle front line staff took personal responsibility for escalating some issues I raised regarding certifification.

Hi Vinit,

Good to know that you received some sort of communication from Oracle. Was this a response to a follow-up email you sent recently? I did send SAI a follow-up email (which I didn't really want to, but couldn't resist) a few days back, but I haven't received a response from SAI.

BTW did you scan your student ID and send it to them by email as a proof?

I hope everyone waiting on the SAI voucher will receive it by March 14th. Would they be emailing the vouchers or would it be by postal mail?

Thanks

Emailing, and March 14th is rather un-do-able, I would rather hope for something like May 14

Oh, you are right. Don't know what I was thinking when I typed "March 14th". It should be May 14th. I wish I could travel back in time and start afresh....

Oh, BTW thanks Vinit for the detailed information. That is very useful. So it seems you already received the voucher. That is great. Good luck with your exam.

Sorry to hear that. Apparently looks like they are not processing the orders on a "First in first out" basis. But hang in there. Hopefully you will get it within the next few days.
