My coworker placed a new order today and looks to me like they got a pretty good deal (since they are a new subscriber...). Does anyone see any issues with this?


Additional TV $0.00
CHOICE $63.99
Advanced Receiver $20.00
Additional TV - 2 Clients $12.00
24 Mo Credit w/AutoPay + eBill -$10.00
24 Mo Instant Rebate: Mos 1-12 -$29.00
3 Months Free HBO/STZ/SHO/MAX -$45.00
Estimated First Bill* $56.99
*Estimated first bill amount does not include sales tax, use or other taxes.

1 DIRECTV® Advanced WholeHome DVR $299.00

2 DIRECTV® Client $198.00

1 DIRECTV® Slimline Dish $0.00

2 Instant Rebate -$198.00

1 Instant Rebate -$299.00
Equipment Total $0.00


Installation Fee $0.00
Delivery & Handling Fee $0.00
Tax $0.00
Use Tax Adjustment $9.40
Order Total Paid** $9.40

Also, the only thing I'm not totally clear on is the reference to the "1 DIRECTV® Advanced WholeHome DVR" and the "2 DIRECTV Client". Is this for the Genie plus 2 client receivers, or is this for a HR2x series DVR plus two H2x series receivers?

Any insight which can be provided by the DBSTalk experts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Nope, everything look in order. The order confirmations are pretty detailed. The only thing it doesn't show is if they decide to add the Protection Plan, which is discussed/done when the tech comes out to install. If they do that, it would be an additional 5.99. I'd remind them to ensure before they sign off on the tech paperwork, that they mention it, if he doesn't bring it up. Everything else is there though.
If they want to know more about the Protection Plan, they can go to directv.com and search for Protection Plan to get more info.

Only thing I would add is if your a dtv sub to have him call and add you as a referral.

Also hr2x are $199 , genies are $299 and where it shows additional TV $0 it would say $12 if they were not clients.

My setup: HR 44, HR34, 2x HR 24, 2x HR 23-700, 4x C31's, Nomad...

I'm pretty sure they are bundling through Century Link, so I don't think the "refer-a-friend" is possible through that, right?
