I received an e-mail from D* offering Starz with a $25 rebate for 2 months, basically free and cancel after that. I have a grandfathered package, would getting this mess up my status. Also how is the rebated handled, is it a credit that shows up on your bill? I could't find anything recent in a search.

I have a similar question. I'm on a an older plan as well and don't want to have to change. Also, when I login to my account, I see they are offering a 2 for 1 deal with starz and showtime. Can I take advantage of that 2 for 1 offer and still get the $25 rebate? Thanks

Edit: Looks like this answers my 2nd question about doing the 2 for 1 and the $25 rebate.

Regarding your grandfathered plans, these should not affect that as they are add-ons to your plan and not changes to the plan itself.

I tried to add the Starz package online but it said I would have to change my package first, same with the 2 for 1 Showtime Starz package. Do I have to call them or will they demand I upgrade.

In the past, they have let people add permiums without changing their package when they call in.

True, BUT to not affect you grandfathered packages you can not do it online, you have to call.

Oh, no! Another Starz! "mail in rebate"!!!

I fought with DirecTV a few years ago for MONTHS trying to get the same Starz! rebate offered at the time. I even called Starz! and they sent me a POST CARD saying I should be getting the rebate....not!

Finally, I decided not to give up and spent over an hour on the phone with DirecTV arguing about the rebate. They finally got tired and just credited my account with the rebate amount.

GOOD LUCK getting the $25!!!!!!

I did this a while back. It doesn't mess your plans up but good luck with the rebate. I mailed in everything that was required and never got a rebate. I called the number on the post card and they informed me that they would send out the rebate but that never showed up. Lesson learned.
