Hmm. The terms don't match up with the offer. It says "Blast Plus: Offer ends 3/31/13 and limited to new residential customers. Not available in all areas. Requires subscription to Blast Plus with Digital Economy TV and Blast!® Internet service. After first 6 months, monthly service charge goes to $69.99 for months 7-12"

I just tried a fake signup thing to see which channels would be included on the $49.99 plan. Am I missing something? I ended up with a $69.99 charge, with no additional options added.

This makes no sense:

"Performance: Offer ends 3/31/13, and is limited to new residential customers. Not all services and features available in all areas. Limited to Performance Internet service to a single outlet. After first 6 months, monthly service charge goes to $44.99 for months 7-12. After 12 months, or if any service is cancelled or downgraded, regular charges apply. Comcast’s current monthly service charge for Performance ranges from $42.95 to $62.95, and may vary depending on your area and other Comcast services subscribed to, if any. "

But the Blast ad clearly says $49.99 for 12 months.

read through fine prints, it's false advertising. The price is not really for 12 months, but just the first 6 months. You shouldn't be able to say that in your ad and make people scroll through a ton of small prints to find the real deal.

File a complaint if you have time here.

These companies really piss me off. Don't advertise an offer you're not really offering!!!!

They're just hoping you don't have time to go through the trouble of getting your money back and they're right. I don't have time so I'm not signing up for this deal. Thanks you guys for reading the fine print and catching the scam!

How are they allowed to get away with this scam? It clearly states 12 months $29.99 for performance internet...

Here's the fine print:
Performance: Offer ends 3/31/13, and is limited to new residential customers. Not all services and features available in all areas. Limited to Performance Internet service to a single outlet. After first 6 months, monthly service charge goes to $44.99 for months 7-12. After 12 months, or if any service is cancelled or downgraded, regular charges apply. Comcast’s current monthly service charge for Performance ranges from $42.95 to $62.95, and may vary depending on your area and other Comcast services subscribed to, if any.

Here's a convo I had with a rep

Quote :
Chris: Thank you for visiting Comcast. What questions can I answer for you today?
You: I was trying to price out just internet. The site says $29.99 for 12 months. Then the fine print states 29.99 for the first 6 months, then over $40 for the next 6 after that. Then I go to try to sign up and it's $34.99 for the first 6 months. Whats the deal
Chris: I'd be glad to assist you in checking our internet service.
Chris: Do you mind if I ask a few questions to better assist you with your needs today?
You: sure
Chris: Thank you. Just to check before we move on, are you a current Comcast customer or have you had Comcast service in your name within the last 120 days?
You: no
Chris: Thank you for considering Comcast!
Chris: Prices and plans vary by location. However, we can definitely take a look at the available offers in your area. May I have your complete address with zip code?
You: XX Xxxxx St, Xxxxxxxx, CT 064XX
Chris: Thank you for providing your complete address.
Chris: Going back, our Performance internet is costs $34.99/month for the first 6 months.
Chris: When you continue using our Performance Internet from months 7 - 12 the pricing would be $44.99/month. After 12 months, regular rates apply which is around $62.95 per month.
Chris: For me to recommend the best package, may I ask what types of things do you do online?
You: That's the best price you can offer for the performance package?
Chris: Yes, that is the price of Performance internet.
You: Ok, that's all I need to know. Thanks.
Chris: You're welcome. The good thing is that our internet services are not bounded by a contract or agreement.
You: I'd rather have a contract and a lower price, but thanks anyways, I'll stick with Uverse
Chris: I can understand that but Comcast Internet service is powered by an enhanced fiber-optic network, it’s faster than any other internet provider. We have the most reliable speed. You'll surely get your money's worth.

Probably a targeted ad and only a small amount of users see it. We should all report the ad, horrible marketing practice
