Has anyone been able to get a better deal on the NFL ST while they were
still under contract?

In the past I had received deals where I paid $150. I just upgraded one of
my receivers so now I am under contract and I am still hoping I can
get a better deal than "list price".

Thanks

Yes, I've gotten deals for ST while under contract. It's easier if you are out or close to being out but it can be done. Probably way too early though to get anything....wait until end of July.

I think pretty much everyone has gotten a better deal. Just start calling once a week at the end of July. If you get shut down, call back a week later. As a nuclear option say you want to cancel and talk to retention. I have never paid more than half price in 5 years.

I called yesterday on another matter and asked the retention rep about it and she said call back later in the summer that there was nothing she could do right now. I have never paid full price for Sunday Ticket.

There have been several longs threads about getting deals in the past.

I have always been able to get a good deal WHILE under contract but it can take 2-3 different tries with different people.

One year I got $50 off, another $100 off, another, 6 months of $20 off bill, etc....
