Just want to inform my fellow SD'ers about my experience today with Costco's DirecTV in one of the Phoenix warehouses.
If you're currently interested in DirectTV, you may be familiar with their current Costco promotion which is a $300 Costco Cash Card in addition to DTV's promotion which is $27 off for 12 months and an additional $10 off for 12 months, making it $37 off total for 12 months.
Now, in addition to the above described current promotion, I used the "refer a friend" deal and got another $10 off, making the monthly savings for 10 months a total of $47!
When I called the DTV number on Costco's DTV link, the rep told me that offers CANNOT be combined...that's BS. I called DTV's regular new customer line and the guy added the extra $10 discount for me.
So, my package I selected was the Choice package, and the price breakdown is as follows:
Choice programming = $66.99
12 month discount of = $27
Additional 12 month discount of = $10
ADDITIONAL 10 month referral discount of = $10
Total for 10 months = $19.99 then back up to $29.99 for 2 months and up to regular price for the second year of the contract.
Just remember to get that referral discount by getting your friend's account number and the city they live in. These are what they ask for and your friend has to have their account in good standing as well.
Edit: Here is the actual pricing shown in the email I received from DTV:
