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.

For others who were told by Comcast CSR that the $19.99 price is not available, you can try to double check through http://www.comcastspecial.com/ or http://www.comcastoffers.com/ . They may only have a 6-month offer at that price for your area.
has anybody had any luck getting the $19.99 rate when the above mentioned two web sites quote higher price, e.g., $29.99?

Question for the folks who have gotten in on a deal like this for Comcast: Do you receive a confirmation (email or letter) that states the terms of your signup (ie. price per month/ internet service level / lenght of promotion) before you are actually connected?
I really don't want to get a surprise X months down the road with a crazy bill spike.

Thanks

I haven't read of any case like that. I doubt repricing would work.

I should have mentioned earlier that the $19.99 for 6 months that I see for my area is for current cable subscribers. It is also showing up as $29.99 for non-cable subscribers.

Those sites are just resellers who'd pass the order along to Comcast. I did run into a couple of instances in the past where the promotional rate wasn't even properly passed along that I needed to get the Comcast CSR to correct. So, if you do order through those sites, make sure to talk to a Comcast CSR to confirm and reconfirm (and again) on the rate when you're activating the service. I haven't been with Comcast for more than a year now, so can't offer any recent experience. I did go through both of them (at different times) in the past and the rebates worked for me. You may want to search around for others' more recent experiences/comments.

Thanks for that info. The only thing I got stung on in my early attempt to get Comcast was I got assinged "Performance Starter", which is their 6 mbps service. I was told verbally I was going to get "Performance" 15 - 20 mbps down. I never heard of "starter" before. This time around I want to get every thing down in writing.

i am paying comcast $39.97 per month for 50MBPS, but i am ticked because I was getting 30mb for $30, and they just gave me 50mb and started charging me $45. I could only get them to come down $5.
my directv contract is up next month but they wont let me negotiate a new deal until the day it is actually up. I am sick of this. thinking of rolling into a fios deal for a year and let them all eat crow. But I hate verizon, like others said they are cocky and think they are in control of the world.

My blast ends this month. I been getting it for $35 a mth for a year.

I think it will go up to $72.

I have no choice. Comcast is the only player in town and ATT DSL is dead. ATT is not doing Uverse here.

There are no other choices man. I mean at this day in age in technology. Can you believe it?

What else can I do?

$72.95 to be exact. Mine expired last month and I didn't realize it until it was too late. I've terminated my account yesterday and now in the process of switching to a new account.

If I remember correctly, we live in the same city. You can try calling the rep that I've been calling. He got me a pretty good deal last time. PM me if you need more info.

BTW if you are sent to a third party verification to accept the contract agreement, then it is most likely you are on the 12 month contract, fixed price. You can also try calling up several times from different phone numbers, and ask when your price will move up, this should give you an idea if you are on a 6mo or 12mo plan.
I work at a "cable company", so I know the business. Great deals don't come easy, so if you want it cheap and easy.... go to dial up... lol

No go in CA. Seems like a NE only deal.
Thanks. Saves me a phonecall =P

No go in Sacramento, CA but I was offered $25 for performance 12mbps down / 6mbps up and $35 for Blast 20/7.
I took the 12/6 plan cause the rates for my existing discounted u-verse 12mbps/1.5mbps goes up this month from $20 to $42. The rep added 3 months free of the Blast 20/7 plan with option to downgrade to the 12/6 plan after the 3 months are over.
Set a reminder in my calendar for 3 months for the switch and a second reminder for 1 year later to switch to u-verse when comcast offer ends.
Last I was able to get was 19.99 x6 mo for 12/6 in Bay Area (3 months ago.) Was not offered the free blast tho.

Im in Sacramento, CA. Had 19.99 performance for a year, 34.99 for the year after. This month it was bumped to 62.95

Tried a couple phone numbers from SD with no luck. Ended up getting Blast for a year for $39.99.

She's some lady from Fry's, PM if you need her number.
Try setting up a disconnect date to show that you're serious about disconnecting. Then after (and before your disconnect day) call them again and they'll offer you something better. Last time I tried this they offered the original promo price of $29.99 (original price I signed up with.)
