I received a mailer for Comcast Xfinity Performance Internet 19.99 per month for 12 months with 1 year contract or Blast Plus for $49.99 per month for 6 months ends 10/21/12. The only thing I saw here is one ending in 9/23. It might just be NE area, but I called 1-877-397-9782 and I got in woot. Of course they try to sell you the world (bundles, etc). I declined even the self-install kit (paying for shipping for cables and splitter), and told them I purchased my own DOCSIS 3.0 modem. Motorola SB6121 Staples ~$54.99 with PM (Amazon and coupon) plus cost of coupon. I attached the letter so you can read the rest.

On a side note, I HATE how arrogant Verizon Reps are when I called to make sure I'm no longer in a contract. This reps even refers to himself as Mr. ____. I should have given my name as such Mr. Wynn, lol Here's what came out of his mouth:

1. He KNOWS all about the Comcast promos and there is NO $19.99 Internet
2. FIOS is dedicated speed, Comcast shared with neighborhood
3. FIOS has unlimited download, Comcast has cap limitation
4. I won't be paying only $19.99. Uh hello, don't they charge tax and FCC fees as well? They even increased their rental cost of $2 each.
5. He's sorry that I'm downgrading my service

Well, I said "thank you, good bye" and hanged up before he finished whatever he wanted to say.

Note that this offer states it's for new customers only. I've had nothing but pain trying to get them to apply discounts to my plan even when stated clearly that the offers are for current customers. If there were any alternative at all for me I would jump ship in a heartbeat, but there are no other high speed alternatives and they know it Frown

I'm assuming this is for new customers only? If so, you should add that to the title.

Does your area have another major ISP? I know Comcast does not have much deals in Atlanta area because they are one of the major ISP around here. Everytime I see a Comcast deal here, I can't replicate no matter what I try.

For existing customers, if your contract is expired, there's always your spouse or other family members you can try.

Wynn, when they pull that, you tell him your first name is sir and your last name is yes sir and that he will address you as such.

Yes, as stated, currently with FIOS.

I had my own modem provisioned and went to the office to return their modem and have the rental fee removed, and she immediately told me that she would give me 6 months of internet (don't remember which I have) for a reduced rate, and boosted my TV package (including HBO for 6 months), and reduced the price of that for a year. I went from $120-ish to $50-ish. She said when the period is over for the TV reduction, it would automatically go away - no need to cancel.

Thanks for the deal! I just moved to San Fran and hope I can get in on this. Why did you buy your own modem? Do they charge a rental fee if u use theirs?

Even if it were, comcast deals are area specific and then there are tags attached everytime.
