Deal Details

UPDATE 2/25/2012 - Got another flier(cost me $15-and i only mentioned to few people so far(read update 2/21 below) for the same offer with a new Expiration date(3/18/2012), whats better is this offer has a different phone number - so try the new number if got shot down on the number from 1st flier. Both fliers are current as of today and attached on the bottom.

UPDATE 2/21/2012 - Reading through the replies - It seems that this thread has helped a lot of SD'ers to receive this(or a similarly slick) offer by either just mentioning the existence of the flier or more commonly faxing/emailing the copy of it to a Comcast rep that asks for it to verify that such a slick offer actually exists. That fact as well as the fact that my neighbors seemingly keep receiving the new versions of this flier on the regular basis(although undetermined interval) gave me an idea. I can try to offer a reward to my entire neighborhood (during a next city hall meet, email list that i can get from local DJ, or just stapling a reward note on a several streets/stores close to my house) in the sum of $15 for each new flier they bring to me - only for the offer i don't already have a flier for (usually means a new/later expiration date and some new/different internal Comcast numbers/codes on it- rest of this offer seems to stay the same(well graphics change as well sometimes)) and only an original flier in the original envelope (to eliminate Photoshoping bounty huntersSmilie. This way i can keep posting new/not yet expired (faxing/emailing expired fliers to Comcast reps will give them a good reason to deny it on the grounds of "that offer is no more") fliers here for my fellow SD'ers. Also if you get a similar flier/offer yourself (or any of your neighbors/friends/relatives do) - post it in this thread and PM me so i can put it into the first/this post(sorry not offering reward for that - but helping fellow SD'ers should be enough of a reward). What do you guys think of this plan? If i get enough reps indicating you think its a good idea - i will offer that reward to keep fliers coming!

UPDATE 2/15/2012 - New Fliers are attached on the bottom (my neighbour got the offer in mail and saved the filer for me) new Expiration is 3/4/2012
UPDATE 2 - Ran some bandwidth tests on this plan - results below

My buddy somehow got the flier for that elusive internet offer that everyone was talking about but i was unable to find anywhere else. Finally got the flier from him and scanned it(sorry about the quality i tried to make it better but my scanner is pretty old and about 5 mins past its expiration date). So far him, his GF, her brother+ his GF and my buds GF's brother's GF's sister(lol-i think i got that right) have successfully signed up by calling the number on the flier(apparently if you just call comcast - they dont know anything about this deal at all). All are in Mass except for the last one- she lives in NH. Out of all only my bud had it installed already-rest are waiting for scheduled appointments(tech to come to house)-but i dont think there will be any problem at this point.

Deal is:
$19.99 a month for 12 months(1 year) and $34.99 for months 13-24(2nd year). Only 1 year agreement(contract) is required so you can cancel right after your bill goes from $20 to $35 in month 13. Best part is - no additional service needs to be purchased(so dont need to sign up for TV or Phone). It is for new customers only(which i think means you didn't have any comcast service for at least last 3 month-not sure on this one though).

Bandwidth Tests on this plan(all ran on 2/15/2012):
Gateway = modem + router in one - (yes i know just modem is less headache but i got real good deal on it and honestly so far it worked perfect as u can see below(same results 24/7 not just offpeak/night).

I just bought new gateway(upgraded from 2 yo SBG900(Docsis2.0(1Down/1UP))) -
Motorola SBG6580 (Docsis3.0 (8channels(4 used ATM) DOWN // 4(1 used ATM) UP) [motorola.com]
FirmWare - SBG6580-3.1.0.0-GA-07-180-NOSH (Old FW(newest is 3.3.1.0 (FW can only be updated by Comcast on gateways and cable modems(thats the reason some people recommend against getting gateways and sticking with 2 separate boxes(cable modem and wire(ed/less) router)- at least FW on the router can be updated by customer then)

All tests on this gateway with this exact plan(Performance(15/3)) ran 2/15/2012:

Got Comcast installed today for the $39.99 Blast / 12 months promotion. Turns out the rep (even though I confirmed multiple times) put me on $29.99 Performance / 12 months promotion. Called Comcast and they said the billing department is closed and they can't fix me until tomorrow. Just warning to anyone who signed up to verify their package online after install.

Hilbe: Did you call the number in the first page? I am looking into 12-month internet, but not sure how to get a deal with Comcast. Some info would be appreciated. I am moving to Houston, TX

Yes. Called and asked what promotions they had. Pretty simple.

Hmm we got offered 12 months of 19.99 performance internet last September. However, I checked the bill and it says:

"^internet promo 6xm"

6xm = 6 months?

Anybody else who got offered 12 months of the performance internet last August/September during those promos, can you check and see if your bill says the same?

Really concerned. My only hope it seems is that he was offered 12 months of promo, where the first 6 are at 19.99 and second 6 are 29.99 as I saw in the wiki others got this. But as far as he told me he was offered 12 months, 19.99, no contract.

I only got 29.99 for 1yr and my bill said the following:
XFINITY Internet
High Speed Internet 62.95
CHSI $29.99 X 12 Months -32.96
Total XFINITY Internet $29.99

ok i signed up about a month ago.1st month $50 deposit fee and $29.99 for 1st month.now i get a bill $24.99 plus $100 fees.i signed up for the $24.99 6mb 6 month package.i told her the guy told me there wasnt gonna be any install fees.


Gladys: As I see here, you were charged for the one-time Failed CHSI Sik - $50, and one-time install fee - $50
Gladys: The reason for the Failed Chsi fee is the Self Install Sik didn't work and we need to send a technician to properly install this. The Failed Chsi fee is for the technician fee visit.
Gladys: Regardless if the account is totally new or transferred, you will always pay the installation fee because when you transfer, the service do not automatically work. It needs to be set up and this will charge you if you chose to have it installed by a technician.


Gladys: Alright, I can credit the $50 for the install fee.
Gladys: However, the Failed CHSI SIK is a valid charge.
Gladys: Just a heads up, we normally charge for the service call or technician visit.
Gladys: This is to set proper expectation in the future.
Gladys: Please give me 2-3 minutes to process the credit of $50 for the install fee.

I'm currently paying $55/month for Blast internet (30Mbps, though I never get pass 20) + basic TV after 6 months of $35/month, no contract. I never watch TV, in fact I don't even keep the TV box in my TV stand. Does anyone know if I can do better? I feel like I'm overpaying for my internet. Thanks

It seems Comcast's site always offers $29.99 performance internet for 6 months to new customers. If it's not contract, the best thing for someone who doesn't live alone is to just do that every 6 months.

Tired of dealing with these guys. They're so dishonest.

I'm in the same situation as you. Never watch TV. Got the blast plus package just to keep the price at $50/month.

I haven't opened the TV receiver box even.

What are you doing with it?

Promotions and offers usually vary by regions. I have 2 more months before my rate expires. I'm currently paying $30 plus tax for performance Internet. Their rep called and offered $40 plus tax for blast Internet & basic cable for a year. I have never watch cable tv for years, only Netflix and regular hulu. Any input for these rates?

Keep it somewhere you know to be ready for return Big Grin.

I really hate Comcast (but I heard that AT&T is even worse). Plus the speed is very unstable, lots of time I just get like 1-2 Mbps. I really wish Google Fiber come quick to our area.

Called the first number and got the 29.99/1 yr Performance w/ $33 install fee. They initially only offered 6 months.but the CSR "checked with the billing department" and went to a full year.

Never used Comcast before but I'm fine with that. I've been paying $35 for 3mb DSL.

Yeah I have all the Uverse services in Houston internet is slower than Xfinity but the HD is better. Was thinking about going back to Xfinity for internet only.
