    The referral code is the Account Number of another DirecTV-Customer, who "refers" you. You have to mention this number, when you call them.


    For precaution, I have sent you mine.

    That gives us $50 off: $50 for you, and for the guy who referred you. :)

    Hey everyone I just moved to a new house and will finally be able to get DirecTV (Hello Sunday Ticket!). Can some one hook me up with a referral code?

    Thanks.

    Edit: Well that was quick. I've already received a referral. Thanks again.

    I just signed up over the phone. The phone rep told me I was going to get:

    HD Dvr - 99
    Regular Dvr - free
    Regular Reciever - Free
    Free Install, no shipping
    AAA - 24 months at $10
    Referral - 5 Months at $10
    Free Showtime for 6 Months
    And paperless bill $20 credit.

    BUT

    My online account just lists all the equipment I got and the free showtime, but nothing about the discounts. Am I looking in the wrong place to confirm they got my order right? Also, my confirmation email didn't give me a breakdown on anything. I know a local installer that is going to get me setup by tomorrow and I want to make sure it is right before I'm activated.

    Your discounts may not show up yet. Normally my discounts show up a few days before they charge me for the months services, so i actually have a credit on my account for a few days until the billing comes through.

    you should also get the $18/mo off for a year national discount also

    Your referral discount will probably show up on the second months bill.

    Yeah, I'm getting the national discount as well. I just want to make sure they got it right since my installer will be out tomorrow, and it is my understanding that once it is activated if the discounts weren't on there it will be a nightmare to get it straightened out. On the older posts some people noted that the discounts weren't actually getting put on after talking to a phone rep.

    Interesting thing happened to me when I called in to get a credit on my account for the referral. I told the guy that I placed an order last night for new service online and I was talking to someone today and they gave me a referral number. He said, ok, he could help and then was kinda mumbling through the screens to get the credit in action and told me I was all set. After asking for other free stuff (which I didnt get) I hung up, realizing that he didnt ask for a referral number! Is that normal?

    the csr didnt know what they were talking about. youre not going to get the package for 64.99 AND the 10 bucks off a month. the package will be 74.99 and the csr was taking into account the 10 bucks youre already getting for 24 months. so dont get too excited.. :uglyhamme

    Has anyone requested the new SL3 SWM-ODU dish along with the Entropic channel stacking switch that uses a single cable from the dish to the house?

    Thanks

    I have no idea what you are talking about but mine got installed with a SWM. The tech said that they were rolling it out and every 5th house was getting them.

    I have one line from the dish to my house and one line to each sat box.
