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:

Worked for me in Folsom, CA. $19.99 for 1 year for 15Mbps. $75 early termination charge. $25 installation fee.
Wondering why this is not working for me. Got shot down twice on the phone, they are asking me to take the flyer to the store. What am I doing wrong?

How are you planning on saturating that bandwidth?
Well, aside from the implied "piracy!" here are a few legitimate ways to nail it:

1) 4 or 5 HD Netflix / Hulu / YouTube streams. (That's called "Having a family" ;P )
2) Downloading software you've purchased online. Steam, Microsoft, Blizzard, DigitalRiver, I've seen them all max my 30Mb connection.
3) Downloading something from work.
4) Downloading an online backup / dropbox/ etc.
5) Mixing any of the above together or with "normal" web use

And those are just things I did today that maxed my connection. Not constantly, but peak use.

Also, don't forget, a lot of the time someone will buy a "higher speed" connection, sold based on the download speed, because they need higher UPLOAD speed. I pay for 50 down, not because I need 50 down, but because I have a need for 10up. (work related stuff.) I'd go for the 100 down, except that it only offers 10 up. If they bumped that to 20, I'd be there!

Just thought I'd throw in my experience:

I called the number and got this deal:

Blast Internet (up to 25 Mbps) with their basic cable service (CSR said channels 2-32) for $29.99/month. The CSR said nothing about a time limit or contract being required.

Thanks OP!

How were you able to get this? I called 3 times and chat once but they all said this promo doesn't exist or it is only for current customers. I'm in San Jose, CA.

No dice.
Called from Houston - $40/mo for a year for Performance or $30/mo for a year for Blast, but the Blast came with a 3-year commitment and jumped up after the first 12 months.

Finally after 4 failed attempts on phone and 2 on chat, I found a rep on the phone who had at least heard about the deal. He could not get it for me, but he transferred me to the department that could. 19.99 for 12 months with 25$ installation. According to this rep who transferred my call, looks like what was happening is every time I called, my call was getting redirected to 1800-comcast and those guys cannot give you this promotion. This promotion is mostly run either by a third party or by a seperate dept, so when you call, you somehow need to end up on the number on the flyer. If you get redirected, you are pretty much not going to get the deal.

Thanks OP for a very good deal.

you're in Houston? Do you have any details to give me something more to go on? Where you were transferred to? a number? an extension? a name? anything? I'll try a couple more times over the next few days.

No, I am from Redwood City, CA. I was calling the number on the flyer all the time, but internally I seemed to be getting transferred to the reps who handle 1800-comcast. I did not know about this till the last rep I talked to told me that I was talking to 1800-comcast and not the number I had dialled. He then mentioned something about third party handing it and a hotline and transferred me to it. Once I got transferred it was all smooth and I got the deal w/o any back and forth bargaining. Also, all other times, I had tried calling was before 5pm PST, this was the only time I called after 5. So I don't know if the routing happens differently after business hours. Worth a try I wud say.

Damn it....Comcast doesn't exist in the area I live, it's only Mediacom for cable internet, and they are expensive!!

About the only other option is Quest DSL, and the other way to get a decent price from them is sign a contract and bundle with a home phone, which I dont need.

Damn good deal for those who can use it. I am gonna thumbs up this deal for those people.

Looks like a reseller only deal?
