Re: Not enrolled to 1-year free plan for Arlo Ultra
I got Arlo Ultra 3 Cam Kit in Hong Kong in mid-July. However, I was not able to enroll into the 1-year free Smart plan. After I contact the CS, he recommended me to pay the subscription fee first and then he will refund me with the charge subsequently. However, I got an update from CS today claiming after their internal review, they were not able to refund me with the subscription fee.
I feel like I was cheated to pay the annual subscription fee (which should actually be free for the first year) with a false promise from Arlo. Are there any users that have encountered similar experience as me? I am feeling very disappointed with how Arlo treat their customers.

Did you buy and install in Hong Kong?
You cannot buy in one country and install in another.
Here is the official response from @JamesC, in the middle of a discussion about the same thing:
The free 1 year plan is only claimable in the country in which the system was purchased.
Just another user
Arlo hardware: Q Plus, Pro 2 (X2), Pro 3 (X3), Pro 3 Floodlight, Security Light (X2), Ultra (X2), Doorbell, Chime
My concern here is that they checked my account and ask me to subscribe and paid first and promised to refund me on the annual fee. However, they have now changed their position and refuse to refund which is basically not acceptable.
Did not get offer for 1 year free of Arlo smart after purchasing alro ultra kit.
Do you live in one of the countries listed here: https://www.arlo.com/en-us/countries.aspx ?
Another aspect is that the subscription is only available if you deploy the system in the country that you purchased it in.
If you do live in a country where the subscription is available, and also purchased the system there, then try contacting support. https://www.arlo.com/en-us/support/contact.aspx
I have bought a Arlo Ultra Kit and need support to activate my first free year of Premium subscribe. I have Arlo Pro Cameras and an account since a couple of years back (firstname.lastname@example.org).
