Deal Details

Last Edited by pesok February 24, 2012 at 10:42 PM
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:

Any competing offers in your area? I got 25/5 for $30/mo because I came to them with a competing offer...
Thanks for the suggestion. I did mention to the rep that AT&T is offering a monthly rate of $19.95 internet only. But she said they don't pricematch and only offered to extend my current promotion.

I suppose I could cancel, and re-sign up a family member as a new customer, if I wanted to get the faster Performance package at 25 Mbps for $29.99. But I'm not that interested in the hassle for the same price, since my current speeds are good enough for my needs.

I think I would be okay with even Comcast's slowest speed package. But is there anything cheaper than $29.99? I see some posts above with $20/mo but those required bundles.

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!!!!

bounce
How to get the new customer promo: $19.99/mo does it vary by state?

Guy should have said he wanted to cancel because Comcast employees don't know how to do their job and ask too many questions laugh out loud

Interesting. Is that $24.99 price with or without a bundle? Also, what part of the country? Thanks!

Canceled my 25mb plan that I was paying $70/month for the past 6 months for. Got my last bill and they charged a $30 non-returned equipment fee. They also have tried to charge me $7/month several times for modem rental fees. I bought my modem 8+ years ago, I have never rented a modem. Comcast has the worst business practices. Makes you wonder if they charge everyone and collect tons of unwarranted fees.

So is there a specific number to call for a deal? I called 877-298-0903 last year and got the 1 year $30 a month deal. This year I tried calling the same number because my price is going up and I can't reach anyone at the number. Retentions isn't giving me any deal.

On the Comcast site all I see is $40 a month for new customers so I'm trying to see if I can get the $30 again for a year for the performance 25mb download.

Please let me know if anyone has a specific number to call, I'm in NH.

When I go to Comcast.com they have the 25mb for 12 months at $30/month for new customers. This is in Denver.

I was on the 25mbps plan for $30/month for new customers. The price jumped to $67 after the promo price ended which is pretty ridiculous.

I called their customer service at 1.800.934.6489 to cancel. They offered $45/month for 12 months, no contract for the same 25mbps speed. It's still a 50% increase in price, but I took it. I'll decide whether to jump ship to AT&T if they have a much better offer.

The competing offer at AT&T is 18mbps + basic TV + HBO for $39/month for 12 month contract online. However if you order online they tack on a $99 one-time install fee AND a $7/month equipment charge. I'm not sure if these could be waived by calling in to order and mentioning that you have your own equipment and want to do a self-install.

I hope this helps!
