I checked out Dish's website today and noticed their Dishperks information. All Dish customers do not receive the Dishperks. If they offer free previews of channels we already receive due to our particular package, then my blood "perks" but, not my Dish.

everyone (in at least in the 120 and above packages) receives the free preview channels offered each month. If you are in the 200 package and the channel(s) offered in th 250 package then you would receive them. If you are in the 250 package, then you already receive all the channels so...

It's an advertising program... they spend money to sell more stuff. Sometimes they also spend money to retain good customers threatening to bail out. If you already have all their stuff but feel the need for a perk, you might try the latter. :D
