Default $100.00 Mail in Rebate

They came out and istalled my HD Tivo last week. I got the unit for 299.99 plus 100.00 MIR. My bill has been charged the 299 but my question is how do I get the MIR. Do they send a form to be filled out or do they just send the rebate themselves...Thanks................

You will receive a rebate form in the mail.Mine took about (3) weeks. Just follow the instructions on the form. Approx 6-8 weeks for rebate.

Default What do I do?

It says include a copy of your monthly bill showing activation of TIVO service. I signed up for automatic bill pay and don't recive a paper bill. What do i do. have directv send me a statement?

directvfreak,

When you go online to pay your bill, can you print the page ?
I would imagine that would work for you.

DirecTV's all over the place with policies. If you read the fine print on that rebate form it says clearly they will not accept copies of the form, only an original. Make of that what you will, but it hardly helps one understand what's actually going on. (I presume they would accept a copy printed at home, otherwise why make available the .pdf file on their site? But who knows?)

I went online and copied my bill and sent it in with my rebate form that I receive in the mail. That form took about 2 1/2 weeks to show up.

It's a strange world. We live in a hi-tech society but when one purchases computer equipment, or in your case, a HD-Tivo, we still have to MAIL in a rebate form. And then wait from 3 weeks to 3 months. My credit card works instantly over the net,,,you would think they (Rebate Ripoff) could credit my card as instantly. Or better yet - do away with silly rebates.

The letter which accompanies the rebate slip states "If you receive your bill electronically, please print a copy of your electronic bill instead".

If you send in the rebate are you agreeing to another 2 years added on to the 2 years you agree to in order to get the $299 price?

Smile $100 Rebate Check Received!

Just got my $100 check from D* today! It only took about 4 weeks, and I used the on-line printed rebate form and a printout of my electronic billing. What's funny is they sent me an "official" form in the mail yesterday--for the same HD Tivo. Do you think I should send it in, too? Maybe they will send me another $100 check.
