Contrarily, Kogan got a Shonky award from Consumer Advocacy Group Choice for its “dodgy customer care” in October.

The spokesperson for Kogan added that the company earlier in 2019 wasn’t “doing well enough in resolving certain types of complaint.”

“Delighting our customers is our reason for getting out of bed in the morning, and we believe there is always a better way. We will continue working hard to improve the experience we deliver to our customers.”
