Price increases are common ... it is nice to look at "something added" that offsets the price but that cannot always be found. The cost to DISH for everything they offer is continually going up.
So is Dish going to throw in the sports pack with AEP? If not then why a $15 increase and nothing added?
As a new subscriber (since 3/1/12) you'll get the $5 credit until your first year is up. As an AEP subscriber you will also get a $10 credit (or free HD for Life if you somehow don't have that already). The $15 increase will be covered by credits ... until your first year lapses and then you'll see a $5 increase. Then the $10 credit will come off after 18 months. (Of course, by then we will be paying 2014 prices.)
Also I am new to Dish about a month and half in and have AEP with the promo price. Will I get a $5 extra price protection credit? I didn't know if I did and if I do is it $5 or $10 a month on the AEP. Thanks for the help guys.
Nope. That is an entirely separate offer. Everyone who has signed up for DISH since 3/1/2012 will not see the effect of the price change until their first year is up. That makes up for the price change.
Just noticed today, ORDER DISH TODAY, and get a FREE $50 VISA giftcard.
WOW! is this to make up for the upcoming price change??? LOL
