I called DirecTV and asked if they had any promotions for Showtime, for which my 3 mo free trial had just ended. "Sure, how about 12 months free?" Yes, please! "At the end of 12 months it will roll off your account, you don't have to call to cancel." Thanks, DTV rep! I make it a point to call every 2-3 months and ask about promotions. Can't hurt to ask, right?
