DirecTV Inc Informative - Ask For a Discount - NFL Sunday Ticket
As most have seen the advertising, Direct TV is giving away the NFL package this year to new subscribers as incentive to switch. To those who don't know, the current subscription rate is $384 for the season and repeat buyers get an automatic discount down to $324.
Needless to say, this is alienating for long term Direct TV customers to pay such a premium when it is being given away to others. Also of no surprise, they no doubt are having issues over this with angry repeat buyers, such as myself.
If you already are a Direct TV customer, call them and ask what's being done for current subscribers. The appear to have small concessions immediately ready to be offered, but if you push, they are deeper discounts available.
It sounds like it may vary what they'll give based on circumstances, but I am month to month, with over 15 years as a customer, and all with the NFL Sunday ticket bought each season. That combo got me almost half off this year.
I had it on my to do list to call and glad I finally made time just to see where their heads were. I would recommend calling to anyone who wants the package this year that is a current customer, especially a seasoned one with no contracts left. Do it before the season starts or you lose the right to cancel the package with a full refund, which is the alternative they probably want to avoid..
