Thanks for explaining that. And yes my bill cycle date is the 12th.

I'm betting your bill cycle date is the 12th of the month and July is the first month without the credit. There's nothing special about the date otherwise so it's not like a new credit promotion system is happening or anything.

I just received a bill $10.00 higher than last, and called about it. The rep claimed my 24 month free HD had expired. I complained that I didn't want to pay that extra since Dish was offering HD for free. He gave me $5.00 off for 3 months and transferred me to a "specialist". That rep gave me another 24 months of $10.00 off, but with a 24 month commitment. I accepted the deal.

24 month commitment and you only got $10 off a month for 24 months? Seems like you should've gotten more than that for agreeing to a 24 month contract.

I had reached my 24 months with my bill on 7/23. Just called Directv about getting the credit restored. Couldn't get another 24 months, but I'll get 12 months starting next month. No new requirements, just auto-bill pay and paperless billing, like before. If I just have to call every 12 months, so be it, I'll take 15-20 minutes out of my day to save $120 a year.

My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.
