    How many people got the 12 (worth $3.99 each) free PPV coupons from Directv this past month? I throw the letter away that came with them but it referenced something about showing appreciation for being part of their HD DVR pilot or early development program (something to that effect)?? I guess this is Directv's way of compensating customers for some of the growing pains??

    I got them the other day, they were the "reward" for putting yourself on the HR20 waiting list. My only complaint is that they arrived in March, and the rules allow you to use 2 a month with an expiration date of 6/30. Don't know about DirecTV math, but I'm thinking that is impossible.

    I got mine this week, big deal I rather have a credit on my account. Almost all movie are SD NOT HD, only one channel shows movies in HD and it's very limited.

    We just got ours in the mail yesterday. The letter was dated Feb 26. I know it's called snail mail, but that's a bit much. The letter says that we have 6 months to use them but the coupons say they expire Jun 30th.

    Dude, I would have taken them.

    I didn't get them because I wasn't on the waiting list. When I called up, I got an install the next week. This was back in mid-October.

    I got mine too for being on a waitlist for a HR20. My only problem with the coupons are I would like to use some of them for HD PPV which is a $1.00 more than SD PPV. What do I do stick 2 coupons in the envelope for 1 HD PPV

    I got them.

    Just send in a coupon for each HD movie you rent. The extra $1 will be reflected in your net bill.

    don't get anything in the mail anymore since D* moved me to "paperless bill" because I looked at my bill once online. Been on the waiting list for awhile also

    You know, you can switch back to a paper bill if paperless is a problem for you.

    So...does anyone know if you can use more than 2 a month to use them by 6/30? Or, should I keep sending them in after 6/30? It's almost comical to get something FREE from Directv and it's still a challenge :)

    They do, but they can't for now. When they get those new satellites up, and they have a bunch of spare capacity, it's a safe bet that they'll put up a significant amount of HD PPV.
