I gave a Club Dish card to my brother and when he went to sign up they told him that in order to use the Club card and get the 'special priceing" that he must sign a TWO YEAR contract.

Is this a new promo they are doing?

My neighbor signed up with a Club card from me in March and didnt have to sign a TWO YEAR contract?

Whats the scoop?

I just went to my Online Club Dish History and re-read this "Disclaimer" -- which I still have questions about--such as one place it says you can only give out 5 cards/calendar year and at the end, it says 14?

Did your brother want to get a 625? If so you do either have to sign up for two years or pay $19.99 if you just want to sign up for one year. Maybe that's where the two year agreement came into the conversation? Anyway from what I understand it is going to change on Aug. 16th, so stay tuned!

Did he call e* direct or did he go to a retailer. Retailers get less $ from e* for a club dish installation since e* figures they, not the retailer, did the advertising to attract the customer. Because of this retailers are notorius for adding extra terms/limits/fees to walkin club dish referrals.

At this point in time, the 2 year contract would give him 2 free years of dhpp and a free 625 upgrade (insteasd of $19.99) as the poster above mentioned. Also the terms are different if your brother has ever had dish before - reconnects have a mandatory contract.
