I already posted that in the other NFL ST threads but maybe it deserves its own thread as I am curious as to how many people received that call:

I was not even looking at getting NFL Sunday Ticket, I never had it.
This morning I received a call from Directv telling me they want to offer me HBO+Showtime+Starz+CineCinema for free for three months. I am like "ok" then she said she wants to offer me NFL Sunday ticket for free also. She explained me that if I switch to Choice ultimate, $5 extra a month then I will get NFL Sunday Tickets completely free. She explained they just want to reward their customers. I have been a customer for only 14 months???
I accepted the offer. She said at the end of the football season, I can just go back to my current package / current price.

I got a call last year about 4 weeks into the season. Cancelled after the season and things went smoothly. Just be careful on the ending date when you switch back. I remember having to call a couple times closer to my billing date to switch as they couldn't do it (or at least thats what they told me) until my billing date.

They've been doing this also for customers like me on grandfathered pkgs like Total Choice or TC+:

I still have TC+ and called Retention to get ST free -- I was never told anything about the need to get off of that package or that they could only offer it if I switched to a currently offered package.
