    Nope, no downsides outside of being without $100 for approx. two months while you wait for the money to be returned to you in the form of a credit card.

    Besides floating $99 for several months, you have to agree to paperless billing and I believe auto-pay as well.

    finniganps,

    With the Sling Adapter connected to either a 722 or 722k receiver, you are able to watch Live TV or any recorded events on your receiver from any computer or mobile device that has access to the Internet. The receiver needs to have a high speed Internet connection.

    If you decide on the Sling Adapter, you can call 1-800-333-3474 or I can order it for you. It does not require any new commitments. I have a Sling Adapter connected to my 722 receiver. I enjoy the freedom of watching recordings from anywhere I may be.

    Please let me know if you have additional questions. Thanks.

    Got the email but saw no link on my acct page. I used the email contact form on the Dish website. Within two days I got an email saying my rebate had been processed and two allow six to eight weeks to receive the card. I got the card less than two weeks later.

    Mary or other DIRT team or DBS members,

    I want to know the approximate timelines for the Sling adaptor.

    1-If I order today, when does it come approximately?

    2-After how many days can i enter the MIR online?

    3-How long does it take to get the prepaid card from rebate entering day?


    I got confusing answers for 2 and 3 from 3 different CSR's when i called.

    Los Gatos,...
    Here's my experience...
    1. Received the Sling Adapter in 5 days (over a weekend)
    2. My rebate link showed up in less than 24 hours after I received the hardware
    3. Quoted time for rebate card is 6-8 weeks

    Nothing new to report on getting my rebate. As I am nearing the end of my 30 day return period, I will be calling on Friday to get an RMA, then reorder it through DIRT, if the link doesn't show up by then.

    Thanks,

    Geordon

    Your account has been processed for the sling adapter rebate. It will be showing up on the rebate tracker but the end of the week. If you choose to return the sling adapter it will start the entire process over again. I promise you will show up shortly!

    This promotion is available to bundled accounts. you need to have a VIP722 receiver and agree to marketing e-mails. Just make sure that you order it through DIRT or a CSR to get the rebate link set-up on your account.

    Thanks for your PM. I will let you know if the rebate link is available in my account soon.

    How do I check if am subscribed to receive marketing emails?

    Thanks

    Mary,

    Update to my earlier post:

    I logged into my account, saw the link, accepted the marketing email and submitted the rebate.

    Got this message:
    "Your Sling Adapter Reward has successfully been redeemed. Please allow 8-10 weeks to receive your reward card.

    Receive a $99 reward card."


    I'm waiting for the sling adapter now.

    Let me know if I missed something.

    Thanks

    They finally fixed the website so you can look at your transaction history.
