    My first HR20 (two years ago, $299++) was charged to my account in three installments. The second one was added about four months later and also in three installments. The third one, added back in March, was charged to my account in one payment. My last purchase (two weeks ago), bought on the website, was charged to my AMEX card on file.

    Received 10.00/mo. credit for one year and HD receiver for 19.95. I could have had an HD DVR for 99.95+19.95 but I really didn't need another one. Also got Showtime free for 3 months thanks to this forum. Been a customer for 4 years this month and this is the only perk ever asked for.

    I also received 3 months free Showtime as a loyalty gift. I only just realized that I had it today, since I didn't get any kind of e-mail notification that it was on. Nice freebie. I've been a customer for 8 years now.

    I just happened to check my Setup online right after I accepted the offer and it was present. I also received a card in the mail today from D* confirming.

    I called and asked a CSR why I, a 12 yr customer, received no Loyalty offers and was told that it is because I was still subscribed to total choice.

    I was then told to upgrade ( for 2bucks more a month and 10 less channels) and I would then become a Loyal Customer.......

    After asking for a little logic about this the CSR then offered me $10 X 6months--
    IF I upgraded

    Is there NO COMMON SENSE at DIRECTV?????

    !rolling I noticed you haven't posted much in the Forum to have a membership date of 2006. Of course, I have no idea how much just reading you have done in the Forum. But if you keep up with this Forum, you will learn all kinds of things about D* :)

    Wow umm that's BS. When I got my free SD DVR 2 months ago I was on total choice. Your package doesn't matter but the $$ amount does. So if youre paying $100/month then it counts more. If you have had a disconnect recently thats a huge negative.

    If you feel slighted call back and talk to another CSR if youre a loyal customer, in good standing, who hasnt been loaded up with freebies since day one there is no reason a reasonable CSR wont reward your loyalty. Never take the first offer and if youre wanting something specific, dont be afraid to request it. If you need a new HD DVR for that new 52" TV ask, see what kind of offer they will get you.

    I have total choice plus and I got the 3 months of Showtime for free..

    I think that you were told a pile of whooo haaaa..

    basically a lie..

    if you are going to "upgrade" to premiere, then you might as well get Sunday Ticket for free.. thats what the going rate is right now..

    I just got the notice today - 3 months of free Starz. I already have Showtime otherwise they probably would have given me that instead.

    Apparently only some accounts have the check box for anniversary perks under Subscriptions? I clearly don't have it:

    I've been with D* since 99 and I haven't received Mod edit:language from D* (other than a hard time). Not a phone call or anything. I checked Showtime and it's lit up, why I don't know, free for everyone I guess. I wasn't notified I had it. I did notice on their website someting about Anniversary gift, whatever that is????????
