Just called up. The CSR said I wasn't eligible for the free Showtime promotion, but said that he would give me a different deal for $10/month off my bill for the next 12 months. That works for me:)
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

I already had HBO, Showtime, and Starz. So since he gave me that I went ahead and picked up Cinemax too.

I saw the free SHOTIME for a year ad on the main page today after not seeing it for a few days. I called in and the CSR came back and told me I could not get a year of free SHO. He instead offered $5 off SHO for 6 months, or half price STARZ ($6.50/month) for a year, so I took the STARZ deal.
I then asked about other deals and he came back with $20 off for 12 months. I also asked him to confirm that the free HD for 24 months discount was still in effect since I've noticed in other threads that some have had that credit drop off after 12 months, and I signed up for it last June. I'll still keep an eye on that, as my billing date is the 27th.

Got the same response about the same time. Much better than Showtime free for a year. :D

I've got three months free of Showtime. After about one month, I still haven't found a movie worth watching. I did catch up with the new season of Nurse Jackie so it's not a complete waste.

I tried today. Struck out. They said I wasn't eligible. I have Showtime. I asked about cancelling and calling back tomorrow. She didn't find the humor in it. Best they could offer was 3 months free of Starz. Not worth the hassle.

Was told that was a new customer offer only. They did offer me $8 off/month for the next year though for being a loyal customer.

I don't think I watched Showtime once in the last year. Lots of 2 star movies and stuff I have no interest in.

Just called in and got the free 12 month deal. Not the best premium channel but at least I can record some movies I never got to see.
