I received an email today regarding $25 back (via mail in rebate) on Starz if ordered by 6/30.

Found in the small print at the bottom of this page.

Now, my question is....

Can you do the B1G1 free Starz/Showtime package in addition as well? That credit for the 2nd package comes to you in the form of a statement credit vs a mail in rebate.

With the new channels being added in the next month or so I was thinking about picking up the package when the new channels come live and if you can get both packages for a net cost of about $13 for 3 months that seems like a great deal.

Any thoughts?

Good question. I am currently doing the Starz/Showtime package. I'm going to try and get the $25 rebate. It's worth a shot. :D

I would say no based on:

"Offer may not be combined with other offer(s)"

this text is found in the fine print of the rebate form.:)

I would say yes because my take would be yes as it appears that the refund is with Starz and not D*. So an offer with D* is not the same as another offer with Starz. Same for Showtime.

Oh-oh. Another $25 Starz! rebate.

Just hearing about this turned my face red. Several years ago they ran this irksome promotion and I went for it. You had to jump though all kinds of hoops like downloading a rebate form and then mailing it in which I did to no avail. I even called STARZ! and they said my account was eligible. Finally, I blew a gasket and called DirecTV and threatened to cancel but they gave me the $25 credit-but what a hassle!!!

Good luck getting your $25!!

Note that most of the offers say "New Customers Only".
If you have ever had Showtime, even on a 3-mo or trial basis, then they may not consider you a "New" customer under this offer.
I got Showtime for 3-mo free last year as a goodwill offer after I had some problems with a receiver. They probably wouldn't consider me a new customer.

"New customer" often means you aren't a subscriber at the current time. I have sent away for, and received, that Showtime $25 rebate twice over the past few years. In the past, the fine print on the rebate form said something like: you are eligible only if you have not subscribed within the previous 12 months. This time, there is no such statement. So, I'm going to try for it again, even though I had Showtime last fall. We'll see.

I received a $25 card from Showtime and a check for $25 from Starz, so it is possible to get both deals with the B1G1 free Starz/Showtime package .

Directv called me today on the Starz deal. I'm going to do it because after the finale of the Pacific tonight I'm canceling HBO/Cinemax.

There is the standard $25 rebate for starz here
http://starzoffers.c...upons/0113.html

Then a Best Buy Party down here
http://starzoffers.c...upons/0116.html

One is a rebate in the form of a visa prepaid, the other a best buy credit card.

Can these be combined?

Isn't their definition of new customer meaning someone who hasn't had showtime in the past 90 days? I'm pretty sure their definition of new customer isn't someone who has never had their service.

I'm going to mail my rebate in for Starz. I have paperless billing so I just printed my last 2 billing statements from my account on Directv.com. Is that correct? I filled out the rebate form for the $25 cash back.
