    I had to talk to a csr. The info was there about me being a loyal customer since 2000. Since I wasn't near my computer, she added the 3 mos. There is something, that has to be done with the e-mail notification to activate the freebies yourself.

    Well, now guess I must wait for my 14th anniversary next March. So much for the HD DVR I have been waiting patiently for.

    Well, jeez, after all this hoopla, and after an hour of trying to remember my login information, I login to my account and discover I have received a loyalty gift. They say I have been a subscriber since 2001 (been longer than that actually), and I got a free PPV. Well, guess I'll see if there is anything in HD worth watching and see if it really is free.

    I talked to a CSR this morning she told me i would get an email on my free ppvs. From what she told me was i would get the credit from the free ppvs even if i didnt use them. Sounds like a sweet deal.

    I wonder if one can switch between freebie offers?

    I'd rather have STARZ than Showtime and in fact would rather have the ten month 5 dollar off deal.

    I guess one cannot be too picky.

    I actually (unrelated to this thread) just called in about an AM21 as fall can be a bit tough with storms and what not, and they were able to give one to me since I am a long term customer. Probably will wipe out my loyalty perk when the time comes, but I really needed the AM21 so it is good overall.

    So I am very happy overall, Directv is still the best ;)

    Thanks for the clarification and that makes TOTAL sense. One question, how do you find out what your anniversary date is?

    I started this thread based on the information that a CSR VOLUNTEERED to me while waiting for my DVR to reboot, and she NEVER mentioned that it would be on our anniversary date. In fact she even told me that it was starting on the 13th and that I should look for either an email, snail mail, or phone call from DirecTV soon. Anyway, knowing it was a CSR and they don't always get their facts straight (heck she didn't even know the new SAT went up the day I called), I shouldn't be too surprised that the info we got has been convoluted.

    Anyway, I am looking forward to my anniversary date to see what I get :)

    The program does exist, and the website exists, and it implies that it is a loyalty program, which it does not appear to be. I know the program exists because some people on here are benefiting from it.

    It is a mistake to have the webpage up, because they did not work out the bugs first or even think through how it would work or even what it is. If it just a random reward, then don't imply that it is a loyalty program.

    I hope I don't sound like I am complaining, because I am really not, nor do I feel entitled to anything, but this does create some frustration. I hear about customers getting free equipment and programming some because they call and complain or ask for free stuff, and now randomly under a "loyalty" program. I have never recieved anything free and don't really like the idea of having to call and try and get something.

    That is why I thought the idea of a loyalty porgram would be nice. Something that had some sort of reasoning behind the rewards, not just random or who begs the most.

    I don't think that it has to do with that e-mail notification or subscription. As I had that subscription checked before the Thanks URL went active. And now, I see that e-mail subscription is no longer in my Account Setup's subscription listing.

    I looked under Orders & Installation and have to assume that my anniversary is on or around my initial installation date.

    This in not a whine or complaint just a curiosity.....
    If my anniversary is in June will I have to wait until next June?

    Now that some light has been shed on the program, I just wish I could find my anniversary month.

    I have bought all of my dish upgrades and receiver adds/upgrades through the places I have worked dating back to '97. I have never ordered any equipment through Directv itself except for 1 time that I wound up canceling and buying myself. So when I look at order history it only shows a replacement BBC from a month ago(PP) and the canceled free dish and HR20 from last year.

    Who was it upthread that said that this proves once again that DirecTV knows how to run a satellite service but doesn't know how to run a website?

    Buy that man a beer. :D

    It's sounds like you have to wait until June 2009 and hope 1) that DirecTV doesn't cancel the program before then, 2) that they send you an email notification and it doesn't hit your junkmail instead and 3) that you remember in 1 years time to visit the page.
