    Will miss them, kinda figured they were ditched since I didn't receive one this time around. Sometimes they were good, other times, never used them, like the Game Channel one.

    I also noticed their "specials" have gotton tougher to get since they announced their bottom line problems.

    I am kind of glad they ended it. They never really gave anything of any use so all it was was fodder for a lot of bitching.

    I logged into my account, clicked on my profile and in the my e-mail preferences section there is still a check box for "Loyal Viewer" which is described as : Anniversary gift notices for you, our loyal customer.

    We all know how some emails from Directv are canned & incorrect. Maybe the OP's was too?

    Won't be missed here either. They always give me 3 months of Showtime but Showtime is already part of my package so they are giving me nothing.

    You can thank all the people that try to squeeze and demand EVERY single free piece of equipment and programming that they can out of the company. A well is only so deep

    My Month was March at that time my offer online was a HDDVR $99 HD Receiver $49 , SD DVR or SD receiver Free.

    When April came around everything went back to regular price. That is a much better offer than free PPV movies that were always billed but never ever credited :)

    They always gave me 3 months of some sports pack. One year, I told them I didn't watch sports, they gave me a small credit for 3 months, next couple years same 'gift' but when I told them I didn't watch sports, their answer was "well, maybe you can find something there you might like" :p

    Oh spare me the sympathy for Directv. Take a look at their latest financial reports. They are not exactly going broke. The question that needs to be asked, like in the Wall Street movie: How many yachts can the Directv BODs water ski behind? Directv has a big problem right now. Someone at corporate has made the decision that their long term customers are no longer valuable. They fall all over the new $30 a month customers and tell the 12 year plus customers that they could care less if we leave and I am a $150+ a month customer. Short sited for quick gains while losing long term profits. I predict this new policy will come back to bite them. As I explained to the CSR I was fighting with trying to get a HR34 at a reasonable price: Do they really think a new customer with basic equipment is as likely to generate as much profit for them than if they put a 5 tuner DVR in the hands of a long term customer? Now just which customer do they think is likely to order the larger programing package and order the most movies?

    I'm gonna miss the 1 month of free sports pack for 3 months because they never tell me that I have it until the end of the second month.

    I've been with DirecTv since 2004 and have never received a Loyal/Anniversary gift.
