My directv subscription came up a few months ago. I called in and was given an offer which i thought was ok, but not great. So i waited and called back every 2 weeks. Every 2 weeks, the offers that I got became worse and worse, so i finally decided to switch to Dish.
I didn't see any good deals for dish other than what was listed however here are the best deals that I found. I went with the $200 rebate back
GWdish.com will rebate you $200 back with the AT200 package and up, or $150 for the AT120 package.
I got the Hopper and comes with the free Sling adapter!!!!
: Website is nothing fancy, this is a small company, but I did get the rebate check as promised right away. It looks like they are compensating the difference so i'm ok with helping out the small guy.
You can ask for Phillip if he's free and mention slick deal so he knows not to try and upsell you unneeded bundles.
If you prefer to go with a bigger company, this link will get you $100 credit with Amazon.
I went with option 1 since i got $200. I received it after 1 week of ordering the service.
Both options should be free activation and no installation fee.
I really dont like directv since they kept raising their rates every time i called. Normally i can negotiate better and better, but this just got worse and worse!
Update: I really like Dish a lot. If anyone is thinking about it, the Hopper is amazing. I can set it to auto record all prime time shows, and then it will also auto skip all the commercials without needing to push a button when i watch those prime time shows.
