    13 years here and I got Showtime free for 3 months. They emailed me and snail mailed me to let me know.

    12 years this past August. Recently received a snail mail card (two in fact -- got a second one about a week later) telling me they were giving me 3 months of sports pack. BFD. If I'd had any interest in sports pack I'd have already subscribed to it.

    I got the same crappy Game Lounge gift for my 10th anniversary. I did send a complaint through directv.com that they should make these gifts something meaningful to the customer. Getting a "rock" would have been a better gift!

    Still, verify, verify, verify. Sometimes I think the callers don't understand the terms of the packages they're offering.

    It'll go away... at least it did for me the last time I got it. I'd just make a note of the date that the three months expires on and double check your account.

    Same here. They had listed separately from the rest of the premiums on my account.

    Never hurts to call and ask, although I suggest you act quickly. In August through September of this year I had the same offer appear on my account. Finally Oct rolls around and I decide to do the HDDVR for $99 that had been showing. When I log into my account all of the receivers are full price and there's a message that I was given 3 mo of Showtime for fee because I'm such a good customer.

    I emailed them and nicely said that they gave us Showtime free for the entire last year and we never watched it. What I would really like is to be able to get the deal on receivers that showed on my account previously. Their response was "since your such a great customer we can offer you a HDDVR for $149".... :scratch:

    After 12 years I just received the Sports pack FREE for 6 SIX months.

    I was wondering why ESPN Classic wasn't grayed out in the guide anymore last week.

    Nice!

    I only got 3-months of Showtime for 14 years. And before anyone asks: No-I have never received anything free, No-I have never called and complained to get something free, and Yes-I paid the full Lease Upgrade price 3 years ago of $299 for my HR20-700.

    I had cable for 20 years at the same address. One year they gave me a coupon for a free pumpkin pie at a local supermarket. So it could be worse.

    When I signed up a couple of years ago, they said I would get a free gift. Two years later... no gift. Oh well.

    Nope, nothing. I have a nice blue and silver card they send me years ago that shows me as a customer since "04.98", but I've never gotten anything on my anniversary. Many years ago, I used to get the occasional free PPV coupon in my mailed statement, but I switched to paperless credit card billing about eight years ago and haven't gotten an of those since.

    My gift last year was 3 mos of Showtime, same thing this year.....been with them for 13yrs now.

    I really dont get why it seems like the newer customers are getting better perks and deals. I remember last year some were getting quite a bit off their bill for extended periods of time. I am happy with showtime for a few months though.

    For my five year anniversary I got $5 off the bill for 5 months...

    Just think of all the things I can get with all that money I saved!
