Anybody ever get a deal you didn't really like and then call back a few days later to get a better one? I've been with DTV since 1999. A year ago I got what I thought were decent enough discounts: $45 off/12 mos, free Max and HBO for six months each; $10 off Sports Pack; $7 off first TV. Got my bill for this first month with all the discounts fallen off and it's $202. (I have Xtra, HBO, SHO, Sports Pack, Movies Extra; and MLB EI.) I called 1-800 on Monday to get replacement discounts and got what so many others here have: nada. Only an offer to cut my package. Then I said, OK, go ahead and cancel. The guy put me on hold. He came back a minute later and said OK, sir, I have my finger on the button, I have you on a recorded line, you're sure you want to cancel? I'd never seen it go that far before and I blinked and said, I'll confirm with my wife and call right back, and hung up. Weak sauce. I did talk with my wife and we brainstormed some. We decided we could live with various OTT services and pay less but boy, we sure like the convenience of DTV. I called back yesterday for another hack at it. Got someone different who, this time, offered $30 off/12 months, $7 off HBO, $7 off SHO, 1/2 off Movies Extra Pack. Boom, that was it. Saves me $47 month total, down to $155. Big whoop. I took it, though. Plus they're making me pay the full $202 this month and starting the discounts effective next month. *******s. Now, of course, I have buyer's remorse, especially after reading these pages (I typically didn't come here before these calls), and learning about the special number. That's why I ask: Has anyone ever called back a few days later and say, listen, I got these discounts but the price is still way too high and I want to see whether we can make it lower, or I need to bail. Or I could say, I know many others are getting better offers. Either way: anyone have success with this strategy?
