My Dish bill was 146.99 a month and I thought about jumping to cable. Called Dish to see what they could do and they basically told me nothing. Called the cable company and they offered every channel they have for 89.99 a month for the first year, plus 60mg high speed internet for 30.00 bucks more and free phone service that I really don’t want. Cable would also give me 4 DVR’s, but I only own a TIVO. Yes, this was a one year tease, but using my Tivo, saves me $20.00 a month in DVR fees.
So I took the deal… Scheduled the install for July 8th.
Called Dish back and asked for them to send to me boxes to send my stuff back… I did not call asking for a discount. Just for my boxes.
DISH dropped my bill $60.00 a month and gave me my premiums free for 90 days. From $146.99 to $78.30 a month for 12 months. I would get more channels (free HBO) moving to cable, but not changing out all my equipment help ease the lose.
I almost did not take the DISH deal as they did not believe the price was getting and was questioning ME about my quote from the cable company. I told them "I could care less if you believe me, just send the boxes." Took the discount...
Guess I’ll back doing the same thing again next year when this deal runs out.
