Deal Details

I called into Comcast to try & get the 12mbs or 16 Mb Internet Data for $19.99.
Since I have Comcast Double Play (Internet + Voice) they refused & insisted it was only for New Customers for 6 Months.

However the Rep told me that I was eligible for
$29.99 High Speed Internet [Performance] for 6 Months.
Then after 6 Months it would go back to my 'Double Play Performance Internet Rate' ($43)

I was also told that they have the Regular (Economy) Internet for $19.99 [For Existing Customers]

bulb ---> My Technique Big Grin
I called 1 866 565 4863
Verify your Account / Phone Number --
Then choose CANCEL/MOVE Option [#4] -- Then DISCONTINUE [#3].

Explain your interested in lowering your bill & know someone who got the promo for $__...
Tell them that it was NOT via an online Comcast affiliate & they were an Existing customer & they spoke to a Comcast Rep.

Another Possible Method Here


It's 16MBs rather than 12mbs [varies by location!?]..

EDIT
$29.99 or as low as $19.99 -- YMMV depending on CSR [Length of promo may vary as well - from 6 to 12 Months] ---> VERIFIED by 100s of USERS NATIONWIDE! --but as always Ymmv

~~~~~~~~~~~

--EDIT 08/12/10 --

My Promo was supposed to end in July initially , then it was extended till August. Now Comcast just told me I'll be on the SAME Promo till NOVEMBER woot
They are Rolling Over PROMO's due to the recession & many customers will be able to Retain their original promo till "we are out of this recession" ...
just FYI for those of you who expect to have a Promo ending soon or another point to bring up if you are currently being Overcharged by Comcast.

And if you want to Inquire about your account / lower your bill --> When you call be sure to pick Cancellation / Disconnect Dept from the Automated System.

Thanks for posting, but this has been discussed in the following thread:

http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1800351

Also, it's actually better to use Comcast chat in order to get the discount, as people have been denied by the phone. Chat takes less than five minutes.

I talked to local Comcast Office , Online Chat & Tried regular a CSR Rep. [1800-Comcast]
All DENIED ME the Offer & told me I was NOT ELIGIBLE for ANY discounts.


One even told me I would get the same answer from every other Rep I talk to. [ that I would be ineligible for discounts]

The method stated above was the only one that worked. & believe it or not It was going to be my last attempt. Big Grin

I was in the same boat for the past two weeks. It's crazy how hard it can be to get a promotion, yet some people seem to get it no problem, every time. I tried your method last week and got all the way to the actual cancellation because they wouldn't budge. I ended up just hanging up at the last minute and tried chat today and it worked.

I'm assuming these offers are for those that have some service by Comcast already. Any offers for non customers?

If you don't have Comcast @ all, they have a variety of Promos.

$19.99 for Performance /or/ Regular Internet speeds -- NEW Customers

You can also sign up via Various affiliates & get cashback etc. [but you may face slight difficulties, depending on the affiliate] -- check online reviews of Affiliate before you choose this option.

edit-
I believe its 16MBS+ w/ 'POWER BOOST' -- rather than 12Mbs.
but The plan is known as Performance Internet to Comcast

Does anybody know if other services are required for new customers for this internet rate? Also, what are the up-front costs. I can find these out by attempting to sign up, but I wanted to ask in case somebody already knows the answer.

Yep. I've been making the same argument about there being not enough competition in the broadband market for many years. Until just recently, I used to have people disagreeing with me and saying that low population is the reason prices are so high and speeds so low. Now there's a general consensus that there are informal agreements between the likes of Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast not to compete too much in each other's territories and to keep prices high outside of the usual 6-month promotions.
