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:

Anyone have luck with Chicago area???? I always got 34.99..
here is my experience today....

i took my modem to the comcast office and told them to disconnect my service....done deal. i wen't home and about an hour later i called the number in flyer 2 (866-926-8514) and went through the business with the CSR having told her that me and the wife were getting divorced Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) and was told that the only deal in my area (suburb south of chicago) was 29.99$ for 6 months and 44.99$ after that. i questioned it a little bit but said i will just call back.

call #2 was to the (877-298-0903) number and the girl there went through the business and told me my deal for internet only was 29.99$ for 6 months and then 34.99$ for the next 6 months which i accepted because it was at least for a year and i was previously trapped in full payment hell for the last year.(the last 4 months i was able to get a 10$ recurring retention credit).

i then had to use my cellphone to create an account on comcast.net by using the last 4 digits of my S.S.N. and telephone number that i used to setup the account with the CSR in order to access my account number. once i had that i was able to plug my own modem in and connect my computer to access comcast's walled garden self-activation and within 10 minutes i was back online.

now i have to cancel the scheduled install and i will be all set for another year....i plan on telling them i won't be in town for the day of the install and will see what they say about that.

for whatever reason in my crap little town they refused to bargain the last 6 times i called and they turned off my internet just to screw with me one of the timesEEK!.....its true, they did.

so the moral of the story is....do as others have and change account to someone else's name and become a new customer if you can't easily get them to deal.

a couple days ago I got $19 for 6 months, I tried for the year but they didn't know anything about it for $19. I told them I didn't need install and they had me call comcast to finish the setup.

Beaverton, OR.

I actually did it over chat. I mentioned the flier from the first post and that was a no-go. Mentioned the current online $19.99 per month for 6 mos at company's website. She then offered up the 12mos for $29.99.
That is good to know. I am also in Beaverton, OR and my bill has been $79.95 w/ modem rental for the last few months. Hopefully they will honor the same deal that you received.

I called last weekend(the -0903 number),and got $19.95 for 1st 6 months,$34.95 thereafter,no contract and no hassles.I nicely ask for the terms in writing,then verified them later with Comcast.Bought one of the many Motorola 5101 modems off c-list for $30.My install date was for Wednesday.I hooked up the modem to be ready for the comcast guy on Tues. and the modem launched into a self-install mode.I already had my account # by going online and entering my phone and SSN.I entered that and it read the mac address by itself.I just followed the onscreen instructions and it set up fine,I didn't even need the install CD that came with the modem.Obviously,the cable coming out of my wall was already live,apparently it was never physically disconnected when I switched to Dish years ago.The $25 install fee was already on the first bill, but they said they'd credit it next month.I'm getting 20+mbps which is sooo much better than the 1.3 mbps I was getting with ATT DSL for $30 per month,landline required.It does say in my first bill that stand alone Performance internet is $62.95,normal rates.Good luck
