    can I combine the refer a friend discount with AAA discount? I have searched and seen some people say yes, others no. its a pretty easy decision to take a chance if I can combine both, but if not, still might not be a bad deal, just would like to save as much as possible before I make a 2 year deal with the devil :)

    It can be done. Place the order with the AAA phone #. Wait a day and call referral # and tell them you forgot to add referral. Have your info ready.

    Worked for me.

    While that might work, don't count on it working 100% of the time. Most CSRs on the referral line will not add the referral discount on after the fact. That's why the AAA and Referral Program each have their own special number to call.

    If I were to have to choose one of the two, I'd probably choose the referral, at least depending on your relationship with the referer. And a deal with the devil wold be a two year contract with Time Warner, I didn't realize this, but their contracts auto renew :)

    Right, you're not under contract until the install. I wouldn't wait until the truck is on his way, that's not nice :)

    I was successful in stacking the two discounts earlier this month. Like the other posters have said, call AAA number first, then a day or two later, call the referral number.

    I received both discounts when I signed up a year ago. You need to call the AAA # first. Then notify them of the referral. I wouldnt wait a couple days, I would let them know while ordering.

    i'm not sure i understand, did you get the referral on the AAA # or did you call right after to the referral line?

    That's exactly how I did it. As long as you do this BEFORE the installation date, it should be no problem.
