Thread Details

Like every July I called into Directv to renew (cancel ST through retentions) and was offered the NFL Sunday ticket for free this year with $30 off my bill for the next 12 months if I sign a 1 year agreement. I was also given 12 off Showtime and HBO for the next 6 months with the agreement. Great deal. I usually get a good deal but this was better than expected. Anyone get a better deal?

That is interesting to know as my contract just ended as well. So did the retentions rep offer this deal with only a 1 year commitment or did you have to pull some teeth like I have had to in the past?

So when you called them what specifically did you tell them? Also, were you out of contract? Just trying to get some insight before I call back.

Thanks.

I was not in contract at the time, Called retentions and mentioned they offered NFL ST free for this year. They ended up giving me ST free plus 30 off for the next 12 months. I have been with DT since 2004. First deal of them offering ST for free for me. Then the lady offered 30 off for one year with a year extension. I had to do it. Good luck in getting a better deal. I can't be happier with the deal I got!

Tell them I know a friend who was offered the same deal and why I wasn't offered this deal. Make sure to speak to a person in retention and it will be done. Good luck!!!

When you call say to them a week earlier a representative said they offered the ST for free and now you see that it hasn't been offered. You see a charge of 41.99 on your account. What can you do to help me out? They were very willing to help and offered free ST plus 30 off my bill for 12 months. I already see the credits on my account. Good luck

The other link is of no help. I was just letting you know of my experiences with ST. Again look at the deal I got this year, Can anyone come close to that. Let me know. I would love to see someone who did better based on last couple years. Please post any better deals with out sending another "better" link deal. The above link does not help in anyone trying to get a better deal. This is the best forum for talk about NFL ST. I wish I had this last year. Call them with this offer and see what they say. Good luck!!!!

I just did the deed man. I also call every year in July. This year I did not do as well as years in which my contract had run out.
I agreed to re-up Sunday ticket for $165 spread over six payments.
Better than a sharp stick in the eye.

Just got my email---monthly bill reduced to $66.63 includes 2 TV's, HD charge, sports package charge, extra receiver. NFL Sunday Ticket Max free for 2015 and all the movie channels for the next 3 months. Did not really push for more. If Directv would just say pay us $100/month for all us these services I would do it in a heart beat playing this game every year wastes everyone's time and money. 2 years in a row now.

No go for me. I called in as usual to cancel the recurring Sunday Ticket renewal but the best offer I received was 20% off taking the total to around $202. I declined and cancelled Sunday Ticket.

I called and got $30 off, plus an additional $10 off, (both for 12 months) plus free sunday nfl ticket, and showtime for 4 months. DId have to sign a new 12 month contract.

I told them I needed to cut some expenses, and for a similar package I was a little over 70 at dish. First they offered me the $40 off per month. I pushed and asked if there was any premium channel offers as well, and they gave me showtime and nfl sunday ticket.

Our contract just ended. Called and she immediately said "are you thinking about leaving us" - I did not need to go to retentions. Got $40 off per month for a year plus free Sunday Ticket. New 1 year contract. Can't think it would be much better than $700 off for a 10 minute phone call. Thanks so much!
