    My thanks to the OP and everyone else for providing the info about the AA special. I signed up for AA for $46.50, but it was worth it. I was able to get the extra $10 off for 24 mo and $200 off 2 HD DVR's. The CSR said I could get Showtime free for a year and the coupon book, but could not waive $20 handling fee. Then checked with a supervisor and said he was wrong, Showtime 6 mo free and coupon book not available any longer. Asked what he would do to offset his mistake. Gave me $40 off, 4 mo @ $10 and free install. So here is my deal:

    Plus HD DVR Package
    HD DVR $99
    HD DVR $99
    6 Mo Showtime Free
    $10 Off - 4 months for mistake
    $10 Off - AAA for 24 Months
    $10 Off - Referral 5 Months
    $18 Off - Current Promo of 12 Months in second mo after submitting rebate
    $20 Off - Go Green (Sign up for on line billing within first 60 days)

    The confirmation looks like the listing below. It is hard to read, so I hope I am getting everything I was promissed.

    PLUS HD DVR P000006364000000001 -----------1 Free
    Standard Professional Install -------------------1 Free
    DIRECTV 5-LNB Multi-Satellite Dish -------------1 Free
    DIRECTV HD DVR (Expanded HD Prog. Capable)---1 Free
    DIRECTV HD DVR (Expanded HD Prog. Capable)---1 $99.00
    DVR Service -----------------------------------1 Free
    $0 Delivery & Handling -------------------------1 Free
    6 Months Free Showtime -----------------------1 Free
    CashBack_DummyName_30607----------------- 1 Free
    B6291/020 ------------------------------------1 Free

    So.... anyone want to share their AAA information for WI??? Been jumping between directv and dish, the extra $10/month for the AAA would seal the deal for directv.


    Thanks,

    They ask for the first six digits of the AAA card # and it identifies what state and region you are in. So you probably will have to find someone that lives near you in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, I am in Texas. You might just consider signing up. If you can pay $50 to join and save $340 more then the standard deal, its worth it.

    If you are in Texas, below is a link to the promo I used to get a membership for $46.50. I give you a free second household member, waives the $20 new member fee and you are supposed to get a stainless steel thermos worth $25 for free.

    No skills and I don't know anybody who could do it for me. I'll see what the installer says about cost. I told the DirecTV CSR that I would explain the situation to the installer when he calls me 24 hours in advance. I have noticed some houses in the neighborhood with satellite cable running round the house near the bottom the siding, and it doesn't look too bad. However, the satellite cable would have to cross in front of sliding glass door at my house. That's not gonna work.

    Yeah, saw that 7/31 was the last day. Install isn't until mid-Sep, so plenty time to cancel if there's a new promotion. Anyone else getting Superfan free these days?

    Hello

    I'm probably going to sign up but live in a very large MDU with the apt not facing the correct way for a personal dish. This obviously means i have to go through the company who is contracted to the complex. Has anybody else had experience of getting any of these additional discounts applied in an MDU. All im being told is that i get the choice extra for $18 less per month ie the $39.90 for 12 months. When i mention AAA he was in denial of there being any additional discounts.

    Can i add these discounts to this plan afterward through the general number by just telling them that's what i had ordered and i will cancel if not....i assume there is a 30 day get out?

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Get everyting that you want up front. They are horrible about you adjusting after the fact. AAA discount is on top of any other promotion. The CSR is lying to you.

    OK, I'm going to call D* on Monday. Anyone who wants to be my referral please PM me. Here's what I'd like and what I think I could get. If I'm mistaken please let me know.
    1. NFLST and the Premium pack for 4 months for $75 a month.
    2. 1 free HDDVR.
    3. I need 2 more receivers and it seems that it's generally best to get what you might need in a few months now, rather than upgrading then. So I'm thinking I should get 2 HDDVRs. Since the AAA promotion is in addition to any national promotion, I'm thinking (hoping) I can get at least 1 for $99, maybe both.
    4. I'm going to ask for SuperFan for free, but probably won't get it.
    5. Referral - $10 a month for 5 months. Thanks in advance.
    6. AutoPay - $5 a month for 4 months.
    7. AAA discount - $10 a month for 24 months.
    Any comments or suggestions are eagerly awaited. TIA.
