Default Dish offering incentives for a current customer!!

Just thought I would pass this long - I just called and took advantage of this offer -

It was emailed to me - for current Dish Network customers. All I had to do was extend my contract for 24 more months . . .

$120 savings on my current bill (3 payments of 39.99)
Free HBO and Starz for 3 months
$15 credit toward VOD/PPV

I spoke with a great customer service person (spoke english) and was overall a very pleasant transaction. Hopefully my first bill looks good and I will be a very happy camper.

Take a look at the email "ad"

So basically, even if you don't take HBO/Starz after 3 mos. you get $120 deducted from your bill?

Not too shabby! Maybe they will upgrade me to new 722k receiver, free, if I waive the $120 discount.....worth a shot.

I wish I could get a deal. I want to go HD, get rid of my AM100 and get a new DVR without a commitment.

everyone else being told that they can only get the vip612 when they call in to upgrade? The rep also told me that they HAD to do an install, first because "HD is different than SD", to which I replied I was merely upgrading from a standard HD receiver and already had HD. Then it was due to some foreign word I couldnt understand. Anyways I have an appointment Friday for the install so I wanted to check everyone else's experiences...

Default CSR had no clue

I, too, received that wonderful E-mail from Dish. Called the number and the rep had no idea what I was talking about! Said that they had "specials" for existing customers, but when she told me what they were, they were nothing like the E-mail!

I didnt even get the email but happened to notice the offer printed next to my address on last months bill. I had received something via snailmail offering two different upgrade packages, one of which was a "HD DVR upgrade for as little as $25." I guess the free one was a better offer

How much is a new HD DVD reciever? I think I heard a CSR say before it was $100? I need one but don't want a commitment.

What if you already have HD programming? Anyone know if this stacks with the Cinemax one cent offer? (that I know longer have but it might be worth a try for that again too. I heard people here were getting it for 2 years.)

To buy a receiver or DVR would run 3 to 5 times that. To lease one, it's much less for the upgrade with a small charge each month. That's what most folks do.

Okay, I misunderstood. I guess it was $100 to get one to lease.

Yes, the $100 would be associated with an 'upgrade in service'. A small monthly charge for the lease.
Most lease, but not all. One advantage is upgrading to another receiver in the future. The lease charge is small enough it would never come close to paying off a DVR in a reasonable time, before the next model comes out.
And if you have a problem with it the process to get it replaced is easier.

But some newer receivers like the upcoming 922 should not be obsolete for a very long time, plus most upgrades can be done with plug-in modules or downloaded software.

If you are looking to upgrade, call and tell them you want to cancel.

I just did this because they wanted $100 from me to upgrade to a HD DVR. The guy tried to talk me out of it, but I told him I could get a free HD DVR from Directv. He transferred me to an "account rep" who also tried to convince me not to cancel. I guess he had more pull, cause he was able to give me a free dual tuner HD DVR and HBO and Starz free for three months. I had to extend my contract to 24 months, but I had like 15 months left on it anyway, so it wasn't a big deal for me.

The tech will be here on Thursday to install my new receiver and dish.

Well I like what you did tommylikewingy, and it is a great idea, but I am trying not to renew my contract. I hate America's Top 100 and want to get rid of it. As soon as I can switch over to an all HD package next month I will.
