I'm moving from off base to on base so they are giving it to me for free. I'm also getting whole home DVR installed for free, a new DVR HD reciever and all the movie channels free for 3 months. She was going to just give me an extra DVR box but i said i wanted whole home DVR and then after that asked for the Ticket for free and she gave it to me no hassle.

I'm going to give it a try but I don't anticipate getting much. I freeze my account from the day after the football season until August (going on my 5th year) so I'm sure that doesn't factor well into getting loyalty credits.

It worked for me about a year and a half ago. I got half the Ticket for free, and upgraded to a new HD dish and box.

I don't get anything other than the Sunday Ticket via Direct TV but when I got pissed at mCd and wanted to cancel the ticket they stepped up with the above.

If I get bored I just might threaten to cancel again and see if I can't get a discount this year and a DVR.

Called and threatened to leave to bundle with the local cable company, only reason I signed up for dtv was ticket which is too expensive now, etc and was told I had already been given the ticket for free this year which would be shown on my next statement. Something about some loyal customers being given that this year?

If anyone cares, I just called about the Viacom thing and asked if I was getting a dicount and I got a $30 credit for the next 3 months, so with only having to pay $100 for the NFL ticket this year, now with the $90 credit, I guess I am getting it for only $10

You probably can get it cheap now that they want to bribe their customers from leaving because they keep ditching channels

I called and got a decent discount for the NFL Sunday Ticket Max package and also $10 off a month for HD, but I may be calling back for some more money off my bill if they don't get those channels back on soon.

My 3 year old daughter was not please to see Nick Jr. not available last night.

I think Dora the Explorer sprinkles crack on little kids through the tv.

Ya the discount can only help for so long when parents have to keep explaining to their kids why they can't watch Dora the Explorer.

It helps when you talk about 'leaving' to Cable or DISH if you are out from under any 2yr contract. If you have that contract they tend to not want to work with you since they have you by the Gonads.

I just got the Ticket for free, plus $25 instant credit, plus $10 off per month for 12 months. Had to sign a 1 yr contract, but that's fine, cause I can renegotiate again in a year.

I brought up the viacom situation, and the fact that I wouldn't have DTV if it weren't for getting the Sunday ticket - and that I can get Redzone from Dish for very cheap.

got mine discounted, but not at the same level. Ticet 50% off (max ticket package), $10 for 3 months, strz for 3 months and showtime for 6. Also free dvr.

Learned that discount is based on time with directv plus a rolling credit system. More credits, more leverage.

If you have the steel stand for your dish and are moving, keep it! They charge $65 for it. Didn't know this cause I wasn't charged for it when I moved into my apartment. So I threw it away. Turns out, they charge $65 for them. Unless you want to fork over the cash each time you move, keep the old one!

Bastages, wouldn't come down below $159 for me so I cancelled. I got it for $69 dollars last year. With me going to 2 games and all the times they will be on National TV or locally televised, I'm not gonna pay it or have NFL Sunday Ticket for the first time ever since Direct TV started it....

Called. Selected cancellation. Negotiated ticket for free! Didn't realize they had the NFL max would have tried for that had I known! They even lowered my total monthly bill. Been with the bastards a long time though.

I thought we were going to cancel but the wife surprised me by calling and negotiating this down herself. Props. Now I don't have to divorce her!

Just got off the phone w/ Directv and didn't get as good as a deal as some on this thread(i.e.- 1 time pmt. of $99), but I got what I thought was fair. I may have made a mistake by negotiating the $10 a month credit off my general bill first. I probably lose leverage by being tied to them for 24 more months. Oh well, I'm happy to get the discount anyway. This was applied by the regular cust. srvc person. She said she couldn't do anything about NFL Ticket.

I thought I was being transferred to the retention dept., but i was transferred to the NFL dept. I think this is new. Anyway, he said he couldn't do any better than $34.99 x 5($175). I didn't think it was enough, so i had him cancel it. He did, but never transferred me to the retention dept. so I called back and specifically asked for the retention dept. I went back and forth, but eventually got them down to $155 / 5 plus Red Zone.

I am happy with this, but I shouldn't have to haggle so much as i have been with them for about 13 years.

I got the $175 offer, too but I had them remove red zone channel and they were able to knock it down to 4 payments of $24.99...so $100 total w/o red zone. And I already have a bunch of bill credits and free channels from calling to b**** about the Nickelodeon **** up

When did you do this? They told me that some people got better discounts that called in July for the Early Renewal offer. I told them I would have but I didn't get my Early Renewal offer until the Aug. statement(true). They couldn't explain that. I got the Red Zone thrown in, not intitially offered.

Anyway, good for you, that is a good deal.

Just a couple days ago...I think it was Friday. If you dont get the deal you want, keep calling back until you get the right person. That was my 3rd call back until I finally got a good deal.

I actually called back in June and they told me to wait until right before the season started to call back.
