    Yeah my promo/discount page, only shows my $60 discount, nothing NFL ST related. On the "Manage package" page. It shows NFL ST Max, with the cost of $395. This month bill auto pays tomorrow. Currently the bill is normal.

    I will have to wait till week 2 to see if i still have access to ST. As channel 114, just stays black, clicking more info, doesn't say anything.

    Overall i'm not to worried. As the lady today was from customer loyalty, they're pretty good at doing what they tell you. Worst case, i have to call them again. They will be able to see i called today(sept 4th), plus the $60 discount was processed today. So that helps me if there's any issue, in two weeks.

    On the "Manage package" page it did show NFL ST until about a month ago and then it disappeared but the rep from the Office of the President told me Thursday it shows on my account. He has told me that three different times over that last month and I would almost bet when week two starts my NFL ST channels are dark. :confused:

    I tried that but get nothing that says I am authorized for this program but right after I talked to him I received an e-mail with Sunday Ticket Max at no charge and it shows up on my bill as no charge as well. I guess if for some reason in week two it goes Black it will not be a good day for AT%T.

    Well this morning they sent me another email. Showing NFL ST Max charge for 395.94, with a Credit for the same amount. So it seems everything is good to go for me.

    I have the Choice package. Just called up today. Was surprised that they were working today as it 's Labor Day. I called the 800-824-9077 number. The best the rep could do was regular price for Max at $395 and the regular price for ST $295. all with 6 payments to get to those amounts. She did offer me $25/month off for a year as discounts on the reg programming. This was on top of the $45/mth off for 1 year that I got for calling in June for the regular programming. I had called in June to cancel the auto renewal of ST (which I got for free last year. They charged the full amount $295 and credited it back on the same statement 100% instantly) . So I'll call again the next 2 weeks to see if I can get free ST. She said to try again in a week or so. If no joy, on free ST then. I may just get the regular ST for $295 then. As I'm already getting $70 x 12 = $840 in credits off reg programming. I normally treat the credits as separate discounts that they give on reg programming. The #295 ST is actually offset by the $25 x 12 = $300 of credits. So in a way it would be free, compared to the cost that I was paying before I called today. But my reg programming costs is still high at $125 before today and now $100 after the $25 off. So I will try and get ST being special programming for free still - over the next weeks and see where I'm at. Keep trying, as you never know...

    why would you call on Labor day when you know the "a' team is NOT WORKING? and I work in a call center and " had to volunteer" to work today>. the people working today only want to get through the day.. you want service you call on Tuesday or this week Wednesday.. and not monday where you solve a weekends worth of problems..
    so if you called today YOU GOT WHAT YOU DESERVE... and no its LABOR day YOU SHOULD NOT BE CALLING IN . because YOU WANT THE DAY OFF.. well guess what so does that guy and he deserves it JUST AS MUCH AS YOU OR ANYONE ELSE..

    I just called too and got the "there are no ST offers available for you." I wasn't in the mood tonight to dance. That's when I started looking around and found this thread. It's good to read here that I do have a chance at getting free ST. I'm not exactly happy that I have a friend that the got the email but I didn't...especially when I've had Sunday Ticket for the last several years and I've been with DirecTV for at least 10 years. I'll try to use that as leverage this week.

    Just called 800-824-9077 and asked for any ST offers available to me. Waited on hold about 8 mins and the CS person came back with a free ST MAX for the 2020 season w/no-auto renew.

    After hanging up I checked my bill for Sept 2020 I noticed that D* had billed me for 1 of 6 ST charges for 2020 - which was not supposed to auto-renew (I called 2 months ago to confirm). I called back and the CS person fixed the ST billing AND gave me a $45/month discount for 12 months due to the billing problem. Wow.

    FWIW - I've been a DTV customer since 1995, have the Choice package plus the Movies Extra Pack, am currently under contract for about another year, and had no active discounts.

    Update: I just got off the phone with a CSR and was able to get NFL Sunday Ticket Max for free with a 3 minute phone call. I'm still shocked. DirecTV really overcharged me for everything last season/year so it was nice to get it free this year without any haggle or hassle. :D

    Called 866-595-2871 (ATT account) and spoke with a very nice rep in Arizona. Said I had some friends who had received an email stating they would get Sunday Ticket for free, yet I as a loyal long-time customer had not. She checked the system while we chatted for about five minutes, and then told me I would get ST Max for no charge. My first call this year.

    Called in for a buddy who subscribes to D* (He hates calling and dealing with customer service, so I have often done this for him in the past.) Got NFL Sunday Ticket MAX for free, plus a $45/12mo. discount. He has not called regarding any sort of regular package discounts in years, simply tries to get NFLST for free.

    After reading so many posts about 800-824-9077 I decided to try it today. Talked with a nice lady in Boise. Told her I have been a customer since 2003 and just wanted to see if I was eligible for a discount on Sunday Ticket. She put me on hold a couple times because she had to check with some guy about something. Well, that guy was apparently busy so she told me she would call me back in an hour or so to tell me what they could offer me. She even verified my phone number. Foolishly, I thought she would actually call. End of story.

    Just got the email saying I have NFLSTMax for free this season (after getting the email saying the same thing in April), in fact I got two! But still nothing on my account web site that confirms this (though I don’t have a Directv account page like I used to have; just the ATT version of the directv account which has much less info than the old directv page). So, maybe I’ve got it. Maybe I don’t.

    Interesting. I never did get an email like others received here but if I go to my account management page, it does show NFLST Max for $0.00.

    Maybe the email went to SPAM/JUNK mail folder.
