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:

I am confused. Live in Texas, $19.99 with contract or not? I am not a Comcast customer before, can I save the $25 installation fee?

What are people's thought on offers like comcastoffers.com

They are currently offering $19.99 for 6 months for existing customers.

Is this a scam?
used them before, it was legit..I don't remember the price after the 6 months though...so get that in writing via email or echat just in case before the 30 day cancellation period...that way if they change their tune, you can get out of the agreement...

19.99 will always be with a 6 month or 1yr contract if you get it, and POSSIBLY an additional contract after that promotional period...you need to call and find out,and confirm in writing after you make the deal..see above...

regarding installation fee, I've always been told that I was req'd to have a tech out to install....every single time, I set the appoint a week or 2 out, and installed it myself online within an hour.... make sure, you have them give you your account number over the phone.... hook up your modem, you may have to call in your modem's MAC addres, and when you're set up, call to cancel the installation fee for a tech, and make sure you cancel the installation kit as well that they tack on....they'll tell you its needed, but tell them you've already activated the service, and that your neighbor had given you their unopened comcast startup kit..... email or echat them to have the kit cancelled and charge removed...I had to get a supervisor each time to remove it...

they will rent you one at $7 per month, or you can buy one on ebay or amazon... SB5120 or SB6120 I believe..the 6120 was on sale for $70 the other day ...just see what you can find....you're better off buying one..

I agree. Just like papitosabe said, buy your own modem and the one that he recommended. I have one of those (forgot which model number though). It works like a charm. If they are gonna charge you 7/month. 7x12 = $84. I bought mine for $60 something. So it already has paid off itself. But always remember the contract end date because they won't hesitate to charge you full price for their services.

Called 877-298-0903 and the lady offered $29.99 for performance (20 mbps down) for a year. I have asked for $19.99, she said that offer is not available in my area. BTW I am in Houston, TX

TBH, i'm not sure. I didn't jump on this deal because I'm already on contract. I just wanted to share my views on modem renting and whatnot. Just FYI..if this deal is really going on and the rep denies your request, just hang up and try again. You have to be persistent and patient. I bet the reps can do whatever they want with your contract. You just have to find the right one. Smilie

I actually have the SB5101, works perfect and its $50 for a new one, so this SB6101 is a great deal for a new model, plus its the cheapest I've seen it....

I checked my home, don't know where is the modem. I connect my router to the wall outlet. It may inside the internet box? If it like this, how can I change to comcast? I believe if I cancel my current provider, they will take away my current modem which installed somewhere.
