  1. Sitting at #238 with 125 & only Diggs left to contribute. I don't like my odds here! Fun contest - have been lurking in the thread during the year. Thank you for the calcomatic - what a great tool. And what a great community this is - good luck to all!
  2. If you see my earlier post - they charged me full price for ST Max, but loaded on all sorts of discounts on to offset the charges.
  3. It was from my account online - I think under “recent activity”.
  4. Interesting. Here is what the actual charges & credits look like from the "recent activity" section: CHOICE - Charge$82.99 $5.71 DIRECTV Whole-Home DVR Service - Charge$3.00 $0.26 NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX 2018 - Charge$65.99 $4.54 Advanced Receiver-HD - Charge$10.00 $0.69 Advanced Receiver-DVR - Charge$10.00 $0.00 High Valued Customer - Charge$0.00 $0.00 High Valued Customer - Charge$0.00 $0.00 Reconnect Customer - Charge$0.00 $0.00 Advanced Receiver-HD - Charge$10.00 $0.69 Advanced Receiver-HD - Disconnect Adj($10.00) ($0.69) Regional Sports Fee - Charge$5.23 $0.36 NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX 2018 HD - Charge$0.00 $0.00 CHOICE - $60/12months($60.00) ($4.13) CHOICE - $55/12months($55.00) ($3.78) CHOICE - $25 off AdvRcvr($25.00) ($1.72) Looks like it does indeed come out to about $37/mo plus tax - and they actually are charging me for ST MAX & found a way to credit it back. Works for me.
  5. Well I called the 870-345-3640 number again and they offered choice package (1 TV/HD/DVR) with ST Max for $37 plus tax for 12 mos (total bill). (Official pricing is something like $82/mo with $85 off/mo?). So, if that actually goes through, this will have been a pretty painless process for some decent discounts. Will report any issues if they surface further down the road.
  6. Called the 870-345-3640 number and they offered the $65 off/month, but nothing with ST or ST max. Also got my last bill & they didn't take off the 1st $49 payment for ST that auto renewed - so made that call to get the $49 credited & will try back after the weekend to see if they can do any better. Note to self: remember to cancel that auto renew at the end of the season!
  7. Actually did call back & cancel service on this date (7/23). Have been disconnected since then - and no call yet. Will catch up on this thread and see what a good number might be to call back. Looks like they are no longer sending out actual boxes to return your equipment - that is where I got the offer last year. Will report back on what comes next.
  8. Just called to cancel the Sunday ticket. Plan on cancelling completely and seeing what they offer.
  9. Gift card arrived a few days ago. Purchased about $64 worth of beer this evening - $136 left to spend!
  10. Congrats on successfully completing the obstacle course!
  11. 1 year. Don't know the cancellation fees - I plan on fulfilling the agreement.
  12. Was still not listed on the directv/redeem site, so called the rewards center & they did what they need to & say the $200 GC will go out 9/6. Rewards phone # (877) 258-1427. That should do it for my DirecTV dance this year (just have to remember to call & cancel the free movie channels & call & take off auto-renew from ST before next year. Good luck to all still wading through the process!
  13. I waited until I got the boxes the 2nd time & had a totally different experience. I had them transfer me to the unlock department after I got a confirmation number & was able to get set up online & check in the following days that everything was set up as promised. Good luck SLB.
  14. I think the problem is that you didn't wait at least 2 days with your service off. The 1st time I did the same thing & had only my word against the incomplete notes of what the rep had promised me. The 2nd time, I got a confirmation number & all of the stuff seems to be on there. If you cancel & reconnect - DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & WAIT A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOU RECONNECT!
  15. My recommendation: Unplug it & leave it unplugged & wait a few days. Then call & IF you have a confirmation number hook it back up. I also recommend recording whatever call you have & be very clear about what the offer is. This year it seems that getting the offer is no problem. Getting them to follow through can be a disaster if you rush it (it was for me for sure). Even after having a confirmation number, I hooked up the box the next day & had to get on the phone because the receiver was not activated (30 minutes of tech support). Also had to spend about 40 minutes getting set up again online (did this right after I signed up again). Many more steps this year. I also went to check on directv/redeem to claim gift card & I wasn't listed. They said you have 90 days, so I'll see if they mail me anything before calling again. At this rate, I might as well just work my actual job & pay full price!
