    Title says it all. Can my wife sign up online with the 40% Bing Cashback and then call in our AAA number? If not, is there some other way to make this work?

    Gonna have the wife sign up. Calling won't get me the Bing cashback. Have to do that online.

    I doubt it. As you mentioned, bing is an online deal and AAA is a phone call. Besides, bing doesn't usually work with other discounts. If you buy a computer from Dell (for example) using bing and apply a coupon code, you won't get the bing cashback

    How are you able to see a 40% BCB with DirecTV?

    If youre not a directv sub i would say your odds of getting the discount are quite remote.

    Go to Bing.com. Seach HDTV. Second or third link down.

    I found the BCB 40% off of DirecTV where you said but what exactly are you getting 40% off of? It doesn't make sense to me. There are no initial startup costs for DirecTV and it can't be that you get 40% additional off of the monthly service.

    I love Bing cash back but can't see how this is anything. I got 20% cash back ad Dell on a 60" Mitsubishi HDTV last year from dell.com with free shipping. The TV was only about $600 after BCB.

    Microsoft has already announced that Bing Cash back will no longer exist after July.

    Well, it depends on what you need. If you are happy with one HD DVR and one HD Receiver, then you don't need the BCB. But, in my case I was going to get two HD DVRs and one HD receiver which would have cost me $199, but since the BCB is avaliable, I'll get three HD DVRs and only have to pay $178.80 for all three. If I only got two HD DVRs and one HD receiver I would end up at $119.40 after BCB. I need the two HD DVRs because two tuners is not enough, but for the extra $60, it's worth it to have 6 tuners.

    I see what you are saying. But you probably won't be able to get the aaa discount or a referral discount ($100 for you and $100 for your friend). Also, be careful you are also not losing the second year discount fo $14 in months 13-24 available in some zip codes.

    Thanks but no second year discount in my market. I do think that I can get the referral discount to work, though.

    Have someone send you the referral link through an email. You can order online that way and get the referral without calling the 800 referral number. You will save the $19.99 shipping and handlnig charge and also see exactly what you are getting. For the referral to work you have to do exactly as DirecTV says.

    Hmmm... I just got an e-mail recently that said that Bing Cashback was ending. It's still around then I presume?

    I got in on that same deal. Didn't even really need it, but couldn't pass it up, so now the kids have a dedicated 60" display for their Wii. :lol:

    What is the AAA discount? Is it only for new subscribers?

    I can't get the bing link to work anymore. It just goes to a blank page, anyone else having this problem?

    I couldn't get it to work in IE, but Firefox is just fine.
