Sometimes it's just a matter of what CSR you get connected to.  This is why it's never a good idea to "threaten" something that you don't want to do.

Called the first time, spoke with regular CSR, $8 off regular ST.  I said no thanks.

 

Called back to verify my contract end date (ending in August) and got someone in accounts and promotions (or something like that).

 

Offered free Max; $20 off a month for 12 months and $5 off a month for 12 months.  Price for the ST was $42 x 6.

 

In other words, they are paying me for ST max (albeit over a year).

I never threaten. I just call and ask if there are any offers available and usually do pretty well. I was finally able to get ST this year for free as others have posted but it took several calls.

I did the NFLST for $39.99 for 6 months, but then she was nice and gave me credits to off set my the $39.99, so I basically got it for free.

I've gotten ST Max for free the past 3-4 years. I don't think i can keep getting it though. At some point I expect them to stop

Just called a few moments ago and asked for any ST promotions they had. The lowest they would go was 8 dollars off a month for 6 months.

Just remember that you need to talk to someone in Customer Retention to get the best deal.  Also, I think right now it's still going to be hard to get a straight discount as compared to paying the freight, but getting credits in an amount which would make-up the difference.  I plan to be with DirecTV for at least the next two years so a year of credits is a no-brainer for me.  For me, by getting the NFL with Max package my bill would go up $20 for the next six months ($120 total), but then go down $30 from its current price for the six months following ($180 total).  That's $60 in my pocket when all is said and done plus the $100 gift card.

Apparently, VaJIm did, since the result of his call was that Sunday Ticket was removed from his accoutn.

That is the same initial offer they gave me. I called back immediately and at the prompt of why I was calling said "check contract end date". That got me to a different department that would negotiate a better deal.

My current contract is up in August so that may have played a role in the deal I got.

...apparently you're wrong. I made no threats. No need. I've been with DTV/ST since 2003 and I know what it takes to secure a deal. Apparently what did happen, the CSR offered me a low
ball offer of $8 off the full monthly. When I said..." I don't want it", she must have thought I meant remove the whole package. I didn't even know the ST was gone until I checked my
account online the next day. I plan to call DTV back and sort this out.

Thanks for the understanding.

I've received ST free the last 2 years and know how the game is played, but was unable to get it so far this year year. I politely cancelled the auto renew feature and will check back again in July or August and reference other deals posted here.

 

I was just checking on additional discounts and got another $10 off per month on top of the $46 monthly credits I already receive.

 

I've been with them uninterupted since '96

Just got off my call with an awesome CSR. I explained that I would like to get this years MAX package for around what I paid last year or cheaper and if I couldn't I would like to remove the auto renewal. She checked and saw that I have the sports pack and have subscribed to the PPV packages since I've been a subscriber since 2013. She said she needed to remove the auto renew so she could find any deals. OK. She came back with a great discount. 4 payments of $40.99. Awesome deal for a grand total of $163.96. I asked if there was any way to push the payments to 6 just so it's not a bigger ding in the ol bank account each month. She said she could but that it would mean I end up paying $15.98 more in total. She then said she would credit me the $15.98 (which has already been posted to my account BTW) if we went that route. I went that route. Very pleased with that deal.

 

Before I got off the phone I asked about the GenieGo. My account shows it as being free but when I click on it it says it's unavailable. She said that if it shows free I should be able to get it. She checked on it and came back to say that she is sending one out overnight with waived shipping for a grand total of free. I'm a very happy camper. I love DirecTV. I can only hope the good times continue after the ATT acquisition.

Let us know if you get the Version 1 or 2

I planned on it 50/50 shot I guess but for free I'm good with either really.

My contract is ending in 3 months so I called to just find out about that. I was asked if I would take 20 x 12 mo  and 5 x 12 mo for an extra year on contract. I said what about ST. Guy said nothing at the moment and to call back. So he put the offer in my notes. Will I lose my 10 off a month for HD autopay after the 3 months. If so, my 20 x12 turns really into 10 x 12.

Why didn't you take this deal?  That's $300 in credits?  ST + Max basically pays for itself at that point.  You shouldn't think of the $10 HD credit that way.  It's still a credit off your bill that you're otherwise not entitled to.  You either get it by negotiating it without ST being part of the equation or use it with your ST purchase.
