Any ideas on what the best time of the month, or best day of the week, and best time of day to make this call? Thanks in advance.

That said, I wish you luck. I think you'll need it. I don't understand why you deserve a break in price as opposed to every other subscriber. You might get a few months of something free or cheap. DirecTV also often seems agreeable to a free hardware upgrade at the time of negotiating a new commitment. But to get a continuing deal on service simply because (1) your neighbors are paying less with Dish and (2) you've been a customer since 1996 seems unrealistic. They'll want to keep you as a subscriber, but one who gives them good money every month.
Try telling your wife she should be more...ummm...forthcoming in the bedroom because the neighbors do it nightly, plus you've been married for 14 years. Go ahead. See where it gets you.

Another words say they gave you 5 bucks off for 6 mounts. And you wake up in the morning hating your self thinking why did i accept this?
They won't be able do do anything until the 5 bucks deal is history.
