    I also got the loyal customer page when I hit "add receiver". Ordered HR2x last night, $99 plus tax and free shipping.
    My last freebee was just over a year ago (Free H20) and have been with D for about 5 years (ST every year).

    From my quick scan of the agreement, it is at the same rate as other purchases on the card. Which means no net gain over my current rewards card. I was thinking of rewards specifically for Directv service to be used for Directv service.

    Been with them since 1996. I do not need another HD-DVR or HD receiver as I have all I need. Now I would take a year or two of HBO or Showtime instead.

    “Rewards” credit cards are rarely a good deal. Most are just ploys to make more money for the businesses involved at the expense of the customer. Even Disney, considered a world leader in “customer service” canned their loyalty programs and replaced them with a branded Chase Visa card that’s no better than any other card.

    Excellent! I just checked my D* "A-List Card" and it says "Customer Since 4/98". Cool!

    Are total years as a customer going to be counted, or only consecutive years to present? I had a break in service due to going brain dead and having cable only in the house for a year and a half ending about two years ago. :lol:

    I don't get the "Valued Customer" either. I've had DirecTV for 12 years 2 months. I had the old premier package for years and I still have 2 premiums. I have four DVRs, the oldest one is an HR10-250. I had (still have, but not connected) two Sony SAT-T60 DirecTiVos since the beginning. I've been on auto-pay for years. No love here!

    I have been a customer since August, 1994 (before the National rollout of service). My account number is a 5 digit number. Directv has almost always been very fair with me when I call and CSRs often refer to how long I have been a customer.

    My experience has been pretty much the same as yours. :)

    Your a Cowboy fan in New Jersey, you deserve all the bad kharma you get :)

    Seriously, why would a CSR lie about something like this? I can understand if they don't know what the heck is going on when it comes to fixing something or even, as my CSR did today, know they activated the new sat. But she really seemed to know about this.

    I think it's great DIRECTV is going to reward loyal customers, and for sure DIRECTV will get some free publicity as the loyal customers share their good fate with family and friends ... looks like everyone winds. :)

    I have wanted an HD-DVR for some time. I looked one time and it was $99.00 and didn't order it. Have never been able to get it less then the $199.00 price. Have even tried the CSR roulette game and no luck. Just checked the account now and still $199.00. Have been with DTV since 1994
