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:

Thanks.

Yeah, they definitely do. If you break 250g twice in a six month period, they cancel you and ban you for a year.

Are you serious? It's the 7th and I'm already over 300GB combined. This is with a 10/1 through BHN.

The $29.99 Blast 12 month is still available in all markets.

Ask the rep to check DEFAULT CAMPAIGN CODE upon completion of the order, as well as NO TRUCK so that you don't get charged the change of service fee of $1.99 or whatever the amount is now...

There are many, MANY promo's available in the system, but most rep's choose not to just CHECK the lists.

Hope this helps, and nice find OP regardless!
I wish..$29.99 is available for 12...shot down by like 6 reps for houston area -- only 6 months..

Thanks KingFalcon. Good to know. Never knew about this restriction earlier ( moved from twc to comcast as part of the recent relocation).

I would say to give me your information and have me do it, but that would take too much time.

All you need to tell them, is that you are tired of the inconsistency of the performance package and that you'd like to upgrade your internet to the $29.99 Blast for 12 months promotion. Be sure that they properly add the package, removing the old, and get a confirmation number at the end. Be persistent, and they will actually look through that list I was talking about and find the correct one to check.

Best of luck!

There's nothing in place that "prevents" you from going over 250GB... My brother-in-law did like 1TB in a month's time (running a TOR server and forgot about it)... BUT... If you go over the 250GB cap, you run the risk of getting a warning. In your warning (probationary) period, go over the cap again and you're banned for a year.

Now, is going over 250GB an automatic warning? Don't know... I've hit as high as 248GB, but always have made sure I never go over 250GB.

So yeah -- the faster speed tiers just get you to your cap more quickly -- very lame.

I've gone over the limit several times... normally not over 300 gb and never gotten a warning letter. They state that they only warn the 'highest data users' so I imagine if your in the top % of data users for that month you may get a warning. No clue what that % is though...

In his case, I think it actually came in the form of his Internet being disabled... Upon calling, that's how he was informed. But again, that was over 1TB in a month. It used to be easy enough to check total bandwidth... unfortunately, either they moved the option or got rid of it altogether.

Aside from this direct experience, I've always heard they send you a letter warning you... I suppose it can vary from district to district as well (both on how they do it, along with whether they have a zero-tolerance policy above 250GB or give a little bit of leeway).

Is there a promo code we can tell the CSRs to help them find the promotion? Is this for new customers only?
