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:

i'm going to sign up for high-speed online, but need internet only and plan on using it mainly to take advantage of VOIP (but I'm not into streaming or torrenting). any recomendations on which company to sign up with? I'm looking for a slick deal of course! I'm in mid-NJ & it seems from the many pages I've read on this thread, that Comcast's poor cust svc makes this deal unslick.

I saw that only one was confirmed in va. I wonder if they ask where you live as soon as they answer. in the wiki they said they immediately ask do you live in the bay area.

Why are you asking the forum silly questions if a deal from last year still alive? Honestly, doesn't it seem obvious to you that nobody here knows the answer, esp. for your (unknown) zip code. Call Comcast and post your findings.

I'd switch from Uverse to Time Warner if their prices would come down a bit.

Call them and tell them to pull the phone conversation to prove that you were not lying! Dont let them get away that easy.

I'm in Minneapolis, MN and they offered me Performance for $29.99 for 12 months or Blast for $39.99 for 12 months. Much better than was offered on their site.

Every time you call/check online you will get a better price. This is why yo may have to call 3 times to get the $20 deal.

This deal worked for me last week. $29.99 per month for 12 months for the Performance speed tier, no contract (Denver, CO). I went ahead and had a CSR confirm the terms of the promotion in a chat as well, like one SD'er reported.

I got performance internet $29.99 a year ago, 6 month agp they increased to $45 and how they increased to $65.

I chatted with CSR online and they said there is no promotion currently available for existing customer. the only thing they can low my bill is to downgrade the internet speed.

Is anyone able to call and low the price for performance package?

The CSR also mentioned that there is a blast plus package which is $69.99 per month for a year, includes blast internet and limited basic cable.

Cancel your service and wait for it to be disconnected, then call the 0903 number and get the $29.99 promotion for 12 months. Worked for many of us, including myself.
