    For those still looking for deals . . . .

    I had to call D today as I wanted to add Fox Soccer Channel back into my package as the new season is about to begin. My current package is the HD+ one, for about $75, plus Setanta Sports.

    The rep who answered the call said that the Premier package would come to about the same price and recommended that I switch to that.

    She then asked me if I was interested in the Sunday Ticket. I informed her I've had it in the past, but the costs are too much this year. She asked would I be interested in it for $78 a month for 4 months - and get my premier package for free during those months. So, instead of paying about $120 for the next 4 months, I'll have to pay $78 for Sunday Ticket - and the additional fees for HD Access and Setanta. SCORE. Of course, I jumped at the offer - given my monthly bill will be slightly less. She then offered me $10 a month off for 6 months, to help offset the cost of Super Fan if I choose to get it.

    What a fantastic offer. I thought it was for new customers only, but she said they can use it for current also . I believe it's showing on my online bill as "Winback Deal".

    So, for anyone who dropped ST - looks like there's still offers to be had if you get the right rep!

    it does happen, my post from a while back

    This was my last time I was going to call and try and get the four months free premier with the NFL ticket. This was my fourth attempt to try an persuade a CSR to give me that package,(I have been with D* since june 9) I didnt even have to persuade her, all I did was ask for it, she had me on hold for 2 min, came back and not only did she give me the package she also gave me the superfan for free and 6 free months of the HD extra pack.

    Crap! just tried to get the same deal, no go. I even called retention, no help there. The only thing I was offered was Free Superfan with the purchase of Sunday Ticket.

    FWIW, I already have Premier package. Been with DTV for almost 2 years (october). Just up-graded to another HD Receiver in June...

    Any tips?

    the problem is that the other dude was chaning from a lower package to premiere. you already have premiere. the best youll probably get is the free SF with ST for 249...although you may be able to get a few more credits.

    Just called and got the deal. The price though is $74 not $78 for 4 months. great deal glad the offer it to everybody. The difference is you only have 4 months to pay it off not 5.

    Well..I bumbled around and tried to secure the same deal.....I presently have + HD DVR. No joy. I was told that was for new subscribers only. Obviously, it depends on the CSR.

    But, after a bit of "whining" and bad humor (but no threats, mentions of Dish, etc.) I bought the Superfan ....and then my lovely CSR gave me:
    1. Superfan for free
    2. HBO/Skinemax for 3 months free
    3. $10 per month credit for a year.

    I already had the Starz/Showtime $11 - 3 month special (which will end up being $2.67 each month after the Showtime rebate).

    I am happy.... I end up with "almost premier" and my bill will actually be lower than I currently paying.

    Tried again today, no dice. Was again offered the Free Superfan and a 6mo $10 credit.

    Also was offered a HD-DVR for $99 + shipping. I declined both offers.

    Can CSR reps see how many times/when you have called when you call in? Should I try again??

    Could you give a few more details....What package did you have before? How long have you been a customer? Have you had any recent upgrades that would have renewed your commitment?? Thanks.


    I think that is a problem I'm having. I just LEASED a new HD-DVR box in March and a HD box in June, so recently renewed my commitment...

    WOW,
    Thanks everyone... Just got it.. Called about 5 times and spoke with several different people. Just mentioned that my friend got the deal and I wanted it as well. 5th person, in retention, made it work..
    Here's what I got.


    So, $74.99 a month for Premier and ST with SF, but i did have to add HD service at $9.99 month plus DVR service, and I did get $10.00 off per month for 6 months and got the HD extra free for 3 months..
    All in all, paying $1.99 more a month. I think my wife will be happy!
    Pretty sweet deal.
    Did not move, did not drop service, but a customer since 2006.
    Good Luck to all.

    I had the HDDVR pack with stars, Protection plan, hd extra, and 3 extra boxes. I've been a customer for about 10 months but about 5 months ago i upgraded to HdDvr. All I did was say a guy i know just got the package, This is true because of this forum :D And they said ok like it was no big deal.

    I guess this offer would only be for those that do not have the Sunday Ticket yet ?
    I called and tried but had no luck with the 74.99 offer, but I did finally get the Superfan for free. I had tried about 3 other times for this. Told them about the flyer I got in the mail and she credited the 16.50 already charged and switch my Super Fan to 0.00 charge. I would have liked the 74.99 offer but free super fan is better than nothing. Oh and by the way I already do have Sunday Ticket and have made 2 payments already.

    yep only if you dont have ST. you would have to cancel ST and try to get the deal after that. of course youd risk losing ghe free SF and 249 renewal, but im sure if you went to add it back you could still get it for that.

    Anyone able to get this who was already on the Premier package?

    I am a customer of about 2 years, have been on the Premier package since I signed up, and don't currently have Sunday Ticket. Do I have any chance at finagling this amazing deal, you think?

    Well I called and got the ST/Premier deal but could not get free SF.
    The best they would do was $30.00 credit over six months. I very politely told the CSR I was not interested and the reason why, which is as mentioned above, best left for other threads.

    Oh well I really do not have the time to watch that much fb and movies anyway.

    It is very possible to get the deal however you need to be current on your bill, currently not a SF sub., and most importantly polite and patient.

    Just my observations based on my conversation.
    YMMV:grin:

    Andy I was wondering what those of us already on Premier(it was still called Total Choice Plus when I signed up) tried to do this. I guess the bait is Free Premier for 4 months but why offer if I already bit. :(
