    I was only able to get the NFL Sunday Ticket basic package for 4 payments of 24.99 this year. I have had previous years where I paid full price for the package, but received movie channels as a credit to offset it and previous years where they gave just a credit to reduce the cost almost to zero. Only able to get 50% off the regualr price and I didn't try for anything for the max package as I don't need the extras.

    I made my annual call about 2 weeks ago- got $ 40 credits for 6 months, so I am getting ST Max for about $60.

    However, I just went to look at my account online, and I am not seeing any of my credits, and Sunday Ticket has not shown up on my bill yet. I did check and I am authorized for it.

    For those who have gotten deals, did your credits show up on your account right away? Has anyone who has Sunday Ticket had it NOT show up on your bill yet??

    Did you check the Recent Activity section on DirecTV.com?

    Yes- recent activity was where I looked- my credits aren't showing, and neither is any mention of Sunday Ticket (I am authorized for it).

    Guess I will have to make a phone call, but I was thinking that maybe the credits aren't there because the Sunday Ticket installment hasn't hit yet.....

    Any thoughts???

    It's possible it just hasn't shown up yet. Mine barely did on the July statement. If the Sunday Ticket section on the site says you're subscribed already you should be good to go.

    Yes, my credits appeared almost immediately online too. Check under My Programming - Sports Packages. It should say you already have NFLST.

    Yes- it shows up there so I know I am setup for Sunday Ticket. Just have to find out why my credits aren't showing

    Made the call...

    -ST Max for $150
    -20 off regular package for 12 months
    -10 off HD for 24 Months

    Could have tried for more but that's pretty good. I'm not under any contract (expired 2 yrs ago) but I should have asked if I re-upped what the new price would have been.

    Exactly one year into new 2-year contract. Lost my $20/mo credit- When I called today, they could only give $10 month for 12 months. I took that. Then on next call, asked about Sunday Ticket. No discounts offered. Will have to call again.

    Called today to see about getting Red Zone added to my basic ST, and the csr gave me ST Max at no charge. I am pleased. :D

    Made the annual call & got ST & RZ for free. Had to renew my contract for a year. Tried to get the HR 34 but the best I could get on that was $247.
    A productive 10 minute call!!)

    Called Customer Service - ask for "Retentions"

    I was offered Sunday Ticket Max (includes Red Zone/Ipad/Compuetr/Iphone) for $209 instead of $299

    I said that wasn't good enough, asked for Supervisor - got that package for $147.97

    Then I nicely asked the guy if he could offer me any discounts on my current bill & he did

    40% off Showtime for 6 months, = $5 per month
    3 Months free whole home DVR service = $10 per month

    So basically - I got the Sunday ticket for $87.97

    Kill them with kindness and get a deal. If you dont like the deal they are offering you, dont take it and call back and try your luck with another CSR

    Made my annual call today and spoke with a very friendly and helpful rep. I accepted a similar deal to others here:

    Sunday Ticket Max for 4 payments of $36.99
    $20 base package credit for 6 mo
    $10 premium channel credit for 6 mo

    I'm happy with the offer as I came out ahead! I'll save the contract re-up negotiation for another call :)

    You can get just the RedZone channel with DirecTV? I thought that was only a Dish thing.

    Earlier this week I called and was able to get The Max for the price of the standard ST and then got $10 off a month for a year. So I was quite pleased.

    I really like The Shortcuts feature.

    Called earlier this week and asked if they could do anything about the price of my Sunday Ticket Max renewal, but rep said they could not offer me any discounts, so I had them cancel my Sunday Ticket Max. I called today and the rep gave me Sunday Ticket Max for free as well as 6 months of Starz Superpack for free. I am happy.
