Default Directv NFL Sunday Ticket

I don't how many noticed that the price went up, and it has been going up every year. So I called to cancel this seasons subscription with the reason that I am not going to pay $45 for six months for a total of $270. Well they offered me a deal for $25 a month for six months which will total $150. And they threw in the Superfan in for free!!! They told me that they were offering me this deal "since I was a loyal customer". It's probably because many people are saying, "thanks but no thanks." I don't what is required to be a loyal customer, but you guys might want to give a shot. I wish the Texans would give discounts on tickets to "loyal fans".

Let's see if it was just a renegade service rep, who threw someone a bone and wasn't authorized to do so, or if it's a recent company policy to reduce the Sunday Ticket rate when someone threatens to bail.

I'll be calling this afternoon, and will report back to this thread.

My buddy told me about it about two weeks ago. And Im pretty sure he wasn't the first. And Directv does make alot of money off me. My bill is usually around $80 a month and I always get the NFL and NBA packages also. So Directv gets close to $1400 of my hard earned money in a year.

Way to go, 'Valley'! Orale!
Put me on the list of guys who just got off the phone and got the same deal. No cool (tacky?) call wait music or other usual sprinkles...but I didn't hang up when she left me on 'hold' for a bit.
Owe you a beer, Stinger

Got the same deal after some harsh negotiation. Took it down in $5 increments. Had to tell the lady to cancel it 4 times before she actually gave me the $20 and the NFL Super Fan package.

Thanks!

I've done the same thing too Stringray the last couple of years. Once I told them I was going to cancel the Sunday Ticket, they sent me to an "Account Specialist" where I was able to negotiate a better deal. Works like a charm!

Yeah, I did the same with Sprint a couple of times. They would rather make something off of you rather than nothing. And they know that you can easily change service also.

I'm surprised you didn't get Skinamax.... that seems down your alley !!

Good for all of you getting the new rates...just goes to show how many people will get f'ked over if you don't take action. For the handful of people the give the deal to, there are others who don't have aclue and will get screwed..so much for being a "loyal" customer...
