NFT: Direct TV - Sunday Ticket - Loyality discount?

Stan in LA : 7/10/2018 5:15 pm
Called today to cancel auto-renew so I can negotiate in September(they said I wasn't on auto-renew, who knew), and the guy tried to give a $15 per month discount which for me was a discussion for another day, but in passing I asked what discounts they were offering. Got transferred to another dept(that guy was a Sunday Ticket specialist).

I may have gone to retention, don't know, and this guy said they were offering a 'Loyalty Discount' of $40 off per month for a year and free Sports Pack. Of course, I took it. I did mention I was watching streaming more and more and I understand they are trying to hold on to their regular customers so I don't know what the deal is. I never threatened to cancel I was just wondering if anything was on special.

Times have changed over there. I used to have to threaten to cancel service to get anything. Cable/satellite TV must be hurting.

ThAt you need to cancel at the end is the season so you get the best deals in aug/sep


Side question
What devices can you get Sunday ticket on IF you do t have DTV at all?
My parents moved from NJ to Virginia coast to help my sister this year and I want to get him Sunday ticket so he can watch the games.

Thanks

on your account information if you were on auto renew?

Not bad. Typically the best deals they offer is closer to the season

and occur after you schedule a cancellation date. I followed BBI advice last year and they called me the day before my cancellation date for Free Sunday ticket max, hbo, and a big monthly discount (forget the specifics). Even with all the discounts I still feel its too expensive. Fortunately Im moving to the NYC area so I can cancel my service altogether.
Stan did you have to renew your contract?

I have found if that is on the table they happily throw out a solid offer. I was surprised I did not have to renew my contract with the deal I got. But Im sure cord cutting is making them offer better deals.

No contract renewal. Will be revisiting them for Free Sunday Ticket in Sept.
Got this about 3 weeks ago

One year contract is fine for me since I can threaten to cancel before football. Free Sunday Ticket plus $50 discount for 12 months.
