    Ah, good for you. I was starting to wonder if the response has caused them to backtrack on the offer

    They couldn't get that to work for me. However, there are six digits in the Club Code area of the card. Those did work.

    Sorry, that's what I meant, those are the first 6 digits on your card.

    Indeed. When I called, the CSR asked for the first 6 digits of my "membership number." I gave him those and he said the computer wouldn't take it, that they were coming up as invalid entry, so I suggested he tried the "other" first 6 numbers labeled as "club code." He tried those and voila! They worked. Now he said he'll know what to tell others when they call (I was his first call ever on this matter).

    ... Ive never seen them EXTEND a comitment
    If you have a 2 year commitment that ends 02/22/08, and you get this deal, it would either void out (the new commitment), or the new commitment would override the current one, but I've never heard of it adding the full amount to your current commitment

    Interesting. I was asked for the first six digits of my membership number and started to giver her the club code, but then realized that was not the membership number so I gave her those first six digits. She did not mention any problem with it, just that someone from the AAA department would need to call me back to finish processing it. Has anyone else been told this? I just talked to my Mom and she said there was nothing said about needing a call back. I also still have not gotten an email confirmation.

    I'm signing up for the first time, and I want to be 100% sure I understand this. I can still qualify for the regular D* deal of $20 off per month for 12 months, and in addition to that I can also get $10 off per month for 24 months?

    I just checked my online bill, been no activity since 2 days ago. My CSR said I'd see the credit this month, and another in 13 months, but of course, we all know what a CSR says may or may not be accurate.

    That was precisely my reasoning upthread -- it's no big deal. And a phone CSR isn't going to know since it does not hit their system in 'last activity' yet. That's why I suggested the email.

    Well, they certainly aren't going to give you $100 for nothing - it's going to extend your committment one way or another, that $100 isn't a gift.

    Of course it's a gift to me. I wasn't changing anything going forward -- not for 2 years and not for 4. So, it's free money to me.

    I went back and re-read your earlier reasoning - it seems sound, but it is definately not like DirecTV to give away such a large sum for such little consideration.

    The CSR that I spoke with made it very clear (multiple times) that by accepting this offer, I was extending my committment by a year.

    I am not doubting what you say they say, because the AAA-promo-CSR person (who reads from a script) said it to me, too.

    I am just observing that I will wait and see if their system extends my contract end-date out another 10 months (in effect), because I am just starting month-3 of a 2 yr contract right now. As soon as I see it in 'last activity' I'll email them and ask what my contract end-date is.

    Same here. I just called to sign up for the two $50 credits. The woman didn't seem to know what she was doing and kept asking me for the same information. Guess I'll really have to be careful when the next bill is available so I can see if this thing really went through or not.

    Not that it really matters to me, but by extending the 1 year commitment, does that mean I am 'committed' for 2 years still? I had the 2 year commitment for getting the HR20 last December, so I was down to 1 year. The AAA special puts that back to 2 years from December?

    I also assume this new AAA credit will prevent me from getting a better than normal deal on new HD DVD equipment? From what I've seen on here, you can get so many credits per year on your account, and then after this imaginary line, D* won't give any more discounts on equipment, etc.

    I just called in using the phone number from the first page and got mine with no fuss. The CSR took my information and gave me a conformation number. It's already listed in my "Installation Listing" under "View Orders" on my account at DirecTV.com. Took maybe 3 minutes. I'm another one who doesn't care about extending my commitment. I've been with DirecTV for 5 years and have no intension of leaving them.
