Just go into Best Buy and pick one up off the shelf and avoid the shipping charge.
Call D*, say cancel, you want to switch to E* = $99
But you get a new 2yr commitment.
When I got my HR20 from them I just grabbed one off the shelf, put it in the cart and went to the cash register. They didn't ask me any questions whatsoever, I just paid and left. Just grab one and go, just don't let the guy at the kios see you.
So if I have an HR20 now, could I get an HR21 for $99?
BTW, anyone know why Best Buys model number is listed as HR21-600?
OTA is reportedly coming...
We just had D* installed about 2 weeks ago. Paid the usual price for 1 HD DVR and got the second at Costco for the $269. Just saw this thread so I immediately called D*, got a very nice CSR, asked her what could they do for me, didn't think much since we just signed up. She came back and said that they could give me $10 off my bill for the next year. Not too bad for a brand new customer.
Plus I still get all the incentives from when I signed up plus a friends referral, etc, etc. Makes me kind of smile and thnk I made the right decision about dumping cable.
I opened my packet, and only have a double and triple points coupon and a 10% off music/movies/video games coupon. No 12% off equipment coupon. Was I missing a coupon? Or is there a way to get it online? I didn't see it on the Reward Zone site.
Knowing Costco's policies, I'd make a trip with receipt in hand - I would be willing to bet they'll give you $100 back.
I bought an HDTV there 5 years ago, and it dropped in price about a month later. They gave me $300 cash back no questions asked.
My packet contained 3 coupons. A 10% off movies and games, and 2 for equipment. 1 was 10% off and the other was for 12% off if I used my Reward Zone card. They must target people differently.
This is great news. Once they get the SWM out I'll definitely get one.
I battled to get a good deal on the HR21. All they would do was give me the $299. I went ahead and ordered it anyway and since I had to get out of an old grandfathered package and add the new HD pack I finally got them to credit me $120 over 12 months. Unfortunately I had the install done on Tuesday and read the forums after the fact. I emailed them stating had I known the price would drop $100 2 days later I would have waited. They were generous and gave me the $100 credit as well. So if you ordered one recently its worth a shot to try to get the $100 credit.
Im happy - $299 - 120 credits - 100 credit = $70 for HR21.
I think this receiver is finally one to get excited over. I spent the whole first day getting mediashare up and running just for the cool factor :lol:
I called my sister, and she had the same one you have. She faxed me a copy of the 12% - not sure if they'll take that copy or not, but it's worth a shot. I'll be making a trip to BB over lunch (and I have a triple Reward Zone coupon and $50 in Reward Zone certificates to apply).
I'm not biting until MRV comes out. I have one HR20 in the entertainment room. But my HR10-250 is still working out well in the bedroom. The only downside is not being able to watch any of the new MPEG4 channels (i.e.- the new HD's) on my bedroom setup.
But when MRV comes to the HR20's I'll be at CostCo the same day to but a new HR21.
What is MRV?
I just got a new HR21 for $99.00 from DirecTV pluse $10.00 per month for 12 months. I feel pretty good about it. It was a retention bluff that worked.
Do the HD DVRs come with an HDMI cable?
Multi Room Viewing. Record something in the bedroom and watch it in the family room.
I've heard of that being done - but generally when the kids are at Grandma's!!!
I am a current DTV customer (7 years) - and I purchased a HR21 for $299 it was installed and activated two days ago. Installation, New Dish, new multiswitch were installed for free.
I have called DTV today on two occassions and they are not budging they will not credit my account or make any compromises to reflect the $100 price drop today. Any suggestions?
The HR21 I picked up today from BestBuy had one in it, I was very happy.
My HR20 I picked up from BestBuy in 9/06 did not..
