    You don't have to be a Costco member in order to use the gift card, I got one last year (it was the $180 promo) for signing up with Direct, I called the Costco cust service # and was told just show the gift card when I wanted to shop and there would be no problem. It worked fine for me, of course they mentioned the advantages of membership when I shopped at the store, if I had one closer to me I would consider it. You can also use the gc on the Costco website but I think the deals are much better in-store.

    Thanks. I realize it's based on a lot of different things (i.e. TV, personal preference). One thing I've read on the forum here is that Dish has better SD quality than DirecTV, especially in MPEG4 markets, which I'm in. The DirecTV deal is very tempting. I just want to make sure I know what I'm getting into with a 2 year contract. ;)

    You were probably able to use it because you already had it and their customer service is one of the best. Technically, the offer now states that you have to be a member to get their offer.

    Just wanted to confirm that we received the $150 Best Buy gift card and other discounts without any problems.

    Hi Mavs-Fan, I am trying to pm you, but I need 5 post's to have access to that feature. Here is my pm, maybe you can pm me? :)

    "Thank you so much for your post regarding the $150 Best Buy gift card AND coming back to say it all went well. I see many times in other forums, people post questions and never come back to say how it all ended so thank you very much for that! I have been burned by mail-in rebates in the past and am VERY skeptical about going for a deal based on that, but this Best Buy deal looks great.

    My question is actually regarding the other two items you mentioned, I would love to know how to get the $40 cash back and the referral bonus. I'm not sure if they are still active or if they expired, maybe you know? Best Buy has a new $150 gift card offer then ends in just over a week and I would love to jump on this AND get the new tv I have been looking at. Thank you in advance for any help!"

    I can actually confirm you can still stack AAA discount with RAF. I ordered first through AAA and then called the separate 1-800-507-4045 and ask to stack RAF discount and got it applied.It may take a few calls depending on what call center you get though.It only took me 2 calls to Directv's CSR.

    I signed up on 6-22 and got install & activation done on 6-30.

    I have attached my first statement for this month.

    IMHO I actually think the Costco $120 gift card deal is a lot better than Bestbuy's deal.You don't have to spend at least $399 to get the gift card.From what I understand also is that gift card can be spent anywhere and does not have to be used at Costco.I think they just send you a pre paid visa or master card debit card.It's also easier to stack and combine the RAF discount online through costco when placing your order instead of having to call Directv and play the CSR roulette game of finding a CSR who will stack RAF discount for you if you choose to go with Best Buy or AAA deal.

    All you do is open this link first:

    cw.directv.com

    Put your order in but before you checkout open a separate tab and bring up the directv refer a friend website. Enter your friends Directv account # and you and your friend will get the RAF discount.

    Here is Directv's RAF website where you just enter in their account #:

    Awesome, thank you kb24sd! I tried to reply to your pm, but I am now at 2 posts and it won't let me yet (need 5) lol :D I can read yours, just can't reply. It's getting late now, but I will follow your directions in the next couple of day's to sign up. I am not an AAA member and I just let my Costco membership go. I am planning to buy a new tv and Best Buy is probably where I will get it if I can get the $150 gift card and the deal is close to what I can get it for at another store. Time is running out so I will shop the tv price around over the next few day's and see how close Best Buy is. After my cable company raising my rates to insane amounts for basic cable :mad:, I am really trying to save $$$ and right now seems like a good time to sign up for DirecTV.
