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:

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!!!!

So you canceled Comcast, then 3 days later called and setup a new account? Did you use all the same info you used for your first account? Same name/address?

Yes. The Comcast rep pulled out my account since I still have my cable TV service thru Comcast. I explained the reason of switching to AT&T was due to higher cable internet price. Then the rep offered me the new customer promo to my existing cable TV account.

BTW, I called to cancel my AT&T DSL service since AT&T said my DSL gateway (modem/router combo) was dying. The retention dept rep just gave me a FREE gateway (no shipping, no tax, no rebate...). So I will keep my DSL till I got my new gateway. ^^

that's why I've said either on here or the other comcast thread several times to always video record your conversation with comcast with preferably a portable camera or your phone camera. I do that on every call where there is a price concern or contract renewal. In texas only one party has to know its being recorded, but if your state requires both, just tell them that you are recording the call.

I capture the date and time on my phone, plus the number I'm dialing and the entire conversation. I think every comcast thread's first action should be to record the phone conversation. Should be some kind of sticky.

Thanks everyone for the information.

Here is my experience for reference.
Existing customer, SF Bay Area, Internet only (no need for TV or Voice bundle).
I was most recently paying $29.99 for Performance Starter 6 Mbps.
Regular price jumps to $49.95, so I called 1-800-COMCAST, and asked to lower my bill.
First rep offered a "two to three year contract" where the first year is $29.99 but the rest is regular price. I said no, need cheaper option.
She then offered one year at $29.99, and I said ok.
She then transferred me to the "downgrade department", which confirmed extending my $29.99 promotion for another 12 months at 6 Mbps.

I asked if there was anything cheaper than $29.99 and was told no.

Do any of you have a lower price (for non-bundle Internet only) in SF Bay Area?

Any competing offers in your area? I got 25/5 for $30/mo because I came to them with a competing offer...

I'm going overseas for 4 weeks and I'm just going to cancel my service altogether. I'll argue with them when I get back. I'm currently paying $70 for 20mb ripoff internet.
