Most current offers are for new customers only, if you have been a customer in the past, you would be a returning customer and may not be eligible for the same promos.

It will probably be an NFLST offer.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Yep, Sunday Ticket with free Premier should start tomorrow. Of course if you called in tonight you could probably sign up for this offer right now. They aren't going to turn a potential customer away for being one day early.

Called this morning and they offered me the NFLST with Free Premier Package ($59.99) for 5 months for reconnecting my service. Said I could downgrade to a cheaper package after 5 months and keep the Free HD for Life as long as i kept autopay. Also, took off the delivery fee of $20!!! Requested a HR24, so we'll see. Installation date is set for August 4th and I can't wait!! :grin:

I called yesterday and received the same deal. Also requested HR24. Install is scheduled for tomorrow, 7/23 so I have my fingers crossed. I was originally going to order online, but my address was not recognized by the system so I had to call. I'm glad I did as I got offered the NST deal as well as all the other promo's i saw online. I also logged onto the rebate redemption site and learned the CSR had completed all of that for me, awesome!

Great!! The CSR i was talking to was setting up my installation date...she says, "We have Saturday July 24th and the next available date is August 4th. We are having a lot of installs in your area and the dates are being taken quick." By the time i made sure the 24th was okay for me, that day had already been taken!!! WOW I checked just a few minutes ago and the next available date is September 1st...i'm glad i called earlier and booked August 4th!!

The $29 offer was for a free HD DVR and free HD receiver as well.

Maybe, but when you click on "More Info", it says exactly what I had in my post:

FREE HD DVR and HD receiver upgrade

Now, for a limited time, you get a FREE HD DVR upgrade and a FREE HD receiver upgrade when you subscribe to Whole-Home DVR service. All you have to do is:

1. Select the CHOICE XTRA™ package or higher and check "Whole-Home DVR + HD service" (for both HD and multi-room DVR viewing and recording)
2. On the next screen, add an HD DVR and an
HD receiver
3. When you're done adding your receivers, click "Proceed to Cart"

That's it. Get ready for the ultimate TV experience. To get the most out of your High-Def TV, you gotta hook it up to DIRECTV.
