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:

Did it happen again? I don't know why sometimes it auto reposts every 5 minutes. Only on SD forums too, never anywhere else.

I am, but I don't know that they checked. The 40MB certainly isn't available in my neighborhood.

I assume you'd have to use a competing AT&T offer in your strategy, but it couldn't hurt to play dumb and quote the Centurylink offer.

Can someone confirm if the 1-877-298-0903 is no longer in service? I've tried 3 times today to call them and no one ever answers, and then they finally hang up on me.

So I have an interesting encounter with Comcast regarding our recent cancellation request. I called and spoke to retention dept and ended up cancelling. However, the Internet is still up and not disconnected as of yet. It's been at least 4-5days since the request, and we are covered until the end of week (paid-for). When calling in again to expedite the cancellation, I was basically told that Comcast would take its sweet time to cancel when they feel like it, and one cannot circumvent the promo ending by signing up a new account at the same address with previous service.

Anyone who recently experienced the same hardball tactic and any suggestions? Our area just doesn't have any other options (U-verse, Verizon FiOS, or Sonic Fusion), otherwise, I can't wait to kick Comcast to the curb.

IIRC one time I cancelled, and I had asked that it be cancelled on the last day of the cycle. Basically because I didn't want my rate to increase past the promo. But before the last day, I had heard of a new promo and I didn't want to wait until the end of the money as I thought I'd lose it. So I called and used my dad's name (I had his permission) and told them I needed to get a comcast acct.

They mentioned it was already there and I said, well cancel it because its not mine and I don't want any problems on my end. I want my own cable. They had it cancelled right then, and signed me up over the phone on the deal I wanted. They are correct about not signing up on a new acct since you already have one. But just use a roommates name or SO, or family member as long as they are ok with it.

My $19.95/$34.95/$66.95 plan just moved to its third tier. I called to cancel and their retention department moved me to $39.99 Internet+TV bundle for 12 months (I really don't need the TV but this if the lowest promotion price they have with/without TV!). When I resisted, they also offered a one-time credit of $40. I decided to renew since I am not sure if there are any better offers out there. I am in Chicagoland area.

Has anyone had recent success getting a good internet only deal? My promo for Performance ended and the price went up from $29.99 to $66.95 which is ridiculous. New customers can get Blast for $29.99 for 12 months.

Any input would be appreciated.

Look and see what "the competition" is offering, then call Comcast and ask them to match it.

so call, cancel, see if retentions matches. If not, go thru the cancellation, and use a roomate's/bf/gf/parents info to do the new deal. I've done that twice with zero issues. Just make sure the person you use is aware of it, obviously.

I am paying over $70 now for internet only...

Will be there any down time if goes thru cancellation and new user?

When cancel it, will they turn off the same day or you can ask them to turn off at certain date?

Thanks.

You can schedule crenelation, but when I did that internet was cut when I hung up the phone. Idiots.

My 6-month $19.99 promo just ended. Switched to AT&T DSL - sucked so much.

So I called Comcast after I canceled my cable internet service 3 days ago.

They offered me the new customer promo: $19.99/mo (25 mbps) for 12 month. AWESOME!!!!
