Hi, I called Directv a few weeks ago and was able to get $16 discount on my monthly bill for 12 months. After the call, I logged into directv.com and saw the discount. So it's been about a week after I paid for the month's bill, minus the discount, and I log into directv.com to just check that I will get my discount this month too. Unfortunately, I don't see it. Does this probably mean that I won't get the discount anymore, or do they just not show it on the website?

Is the best thing to do is call or just wait and see if they add it near the end of the month? Has anyone had any similar experiences?

Thanks :)

For me the recent activity adds the charges and then about two weeks later the discounts show. It seems the discounts don't show up until just before the bill is due.

I get the GM Employee discount (retired from Hughes Aircraft) and it shows up at different times each month. Once it wasn't there and I feared that they might have stopped it since it has been a while since GM sold Directv, but it showed up twice the next month. It is rarely consistent.
