    A winback department is one that attempts to win back customers who have left the business.

    I'd expect them to call the customer and make an offer the customer would accept to come back to a business.

    Pretty sure you want the loyalty department. Call and tell them you want to cancel, that gets you there.

    I wonder how many of those hundreds of thousands of customers Directv lost called the loyalty Dept before canceling?

    My guess is half but then again I wonder how many people did call and stayed? That’s would be an interesting static to know. If 4 million people called and stayed it would mean they are in worst shape than the loses indicate. That would be a lot of lost income via retention compromises!

    I know 2018 was the first year I ever called with the intention of canceling, that $60 a month off was the only thing that changed my mind. The bill had been creeping up year by year until it was intolerable.

    If they really mean the winback dept, you don't call them, they call you with comeback offers if the system determines your account standing was good enough to try to get back, after you turned down the final offer of the loyalty dept and cancelled.

    As for the loyalty dept, if by "was on att", you mean the account has already been cancelled, then it's too late. The loyalty dept would have been who you were talking to when you called to cancel the account. If they didn't even attempt to give you a good offer to stay before you cancelled, there's pretty much no chance of getting a winback call.

    Shocked, in the nearly 2 months I've been gone, I have not got one phone call or letter. Just the boxes to mail the receivers back.
