    What he said. You can haggle just about anything down if you want to spend the time. The last thing they want is you leaving. Less money in their pockets, and more in their competitors. No brainer for them to bend over and give it up. They are STILL making $ off of you at those adjusted rates, they just aren't raping you as bad. Go get you some $ back.

    I can't get my wife to give up cable, not because she loves cable. she says she doesn't want to go through changing over to satellite. that's not good, on the other hand she might have changed me out long ago if she was ok with it. lol.

    If ever there was a time to hit up DirecTV, it's now. They are being bought out by ATT (maybe) and every subscriber counts.

    I told the computer to cancel my account and that I wasn't moving. Straight to retention.

    Then I said I kept DirecTV only because I traveled all the time and wanted to watch my football, but couldn't afford the NFLST after the free subscription. I said I travel so they had to give me MAX which has the tablet and phone service. She was like, oh, that's all? Take this and that and this and free equipment.

    She also said, call back next year, we want to keep you! (y)

    Okay, so being inspired by RFIP, tonight I called and spoke with Angela (1st CS Rep) and Maria (3rd Party CS Rep) and this is what I was given. Not too bad.

    $ 6.00 1-DirecTV Genie Receiver (Monthly cost, no cost for equipment purchase)
    $ 18.00 3-DirecTV Genie Mini Receivers (Monthly cost, no cost for equipment purchase)
    $ 0.00 Installation Costs
    ($ 20.00) Customer Discount No. 1: Next 6 months ($120.00 savings)
    ($ 10.00) Customer Discount No. 2: Next 12 months ($120.00 savings)
    ($ 5.00) Customer Discount No. 3: Next 24 months ($120.00 savings)
    $240.00 NFL Sunday Ticket Package (I might splurge and get the Max ticket once the season starts. Only costs $90.00)
    ($250.00) Prepaid VISA Card for renewal of DirecTV Service for 12 Months.

    All these improvements for basically nothing.

    PREPAID VISA?!? WTF! I could buy RAMS TICKETS! I'm calling back.

    Oh, and call later and ask how to get your sunday ticket on your tablet then bitch when they say you can't. Tell them you travel. They'll give you Max like RFID and me.

    After a certain amount of time, you can't edit messages anymore.

    I think it's to prevent someone from posting "The Rams are awesome!", getting a bunch of likes, then editing the liked messages to "I like Hitler so huggy-muggy much!"

    And I've done stuff like that, been sent over to retention and........nothing. $10.00 off for 6 months blah, blah blah....nothing.
    Been with Direct TV at LEAST 12 years, ALWAYS pay on time, have a large (three rooms) program package with HD and nothing....EVERY SINGLE TIME. They're like, "sorry to see you go....when do you want to stop service?"

    Dude, call in, when the computer asks what you want, say cancel my service. Then when it asks if you are moving, say no. Go straight to retention and say you can't afford sunday ticket and you needed it because you are traveling so you are leaving. If you have a history with them, they will pay off.

    Just don't back down. They will pay up every time.

    They will give you free new equipment too unless you have cost them a fortune lately.

    Just say goodbye. Stay with it.

    This costs too much, I can't afford NFLST, I need it when I travel.

    Then, when they give you that, ask about showtime and a visa card!

    You know what happens if you fail? You call back and get the same service at the same price.

    On the phone with DTV now. I threatened to quit so they reduced my bill by $30. They're working on a ST adjustment now.

    I'm surprised. They caved like a politician.

    Appended: They just gave me the Ticket for free. Plus complete equipment upgrades.

    Well crap, I wish I could get in on the fun, but I've never had DirecTV. I love cable internet too much to give it up for DSL.

    I guess I'm stuck in the rat leagues watching on gofirstrow.eu, or Wiziwig.tv .

    I have cable internet and DirecTV for video. Same price. Well, now that I RFIDed them in the ass, much cheaper and with the ticket. This new Geni has a terabyte of hard drive and will record 5 shows at once.

    Being a first time customer won't get me many discounts on the sunday ticket, unless I find a different angle to move from...like "make it worth my while to leave comcast for you."

    Also, I use a local guy for my comcast deals. I have everything maxed out for about 120 a month, with no contract.
