Public Service announcement for DirecTV users ...

[38]
Posted: Dec 15, 2017 4:47 PM
 

DirecTV users, public service announcement :) Call 1-800-778-3397 and ask for your holiday Loyalty discount. You will get between $15.00 and $60.00 per month off your monthly bill. Every little bit helps.

Update :

I got $20 discount per month, Showtime for 4 months (don't have to call to cancel ), and $5 per month off the regional sports pack. My relative in SC got $60.00 per month discount for 12 months. Anyway, it is worth a call.

EssoClub you rock! I just called that 800 line and less than 5mins they had me set up for $60/month discount no strings attached. I’ve had DTV since 1996 so definitely qualified for a loyalty discount! That’s $720 savings over the next 12 months.

Glad that it worked for you , I wish everyone that did it would post what they saved, so people don.t think it is some scam.

Called and got $50 off a month for the next year and 6 months free HBO. The guy on the phone saw I was calling from SC and asked if I was a Clemson fan. I said yes and he said they couldn’t do anything for me in that case. He then laughed and said he is a Bama fan and looking forward to another great game.

Thanks @EssoClub2 for the tip. Next time you’re in town for a game swing by lot 5 and I’ll be glad to reward your thoughtfulness in sharing this info with a nice cold beer.

Just to clarify , that was in the past correct? You did not call about this offer because you had already had it with them correct?

Its the Real Deal! Got 40.00 off along with HBO & SHOW for 12 months. Customer since 1999. And I had a Problem with equipment not working properly and they scheduled me for the first week in January at my scheduling request. If you got DTV call them, I think they are actively countering Cord Cutters. Just a guess I have no direct knowledge though!

Very cool. I understand the guy above being mad enough to cancel them in the past. That is why I had a break in service. I only went back because of a great deal for "new customers only" , maybe this "loyalty" discount means they have realized the error of their ways in the past.

This must be an acknowledgement that they are no longer competitive with the over the top options in the market, including their own OTT offering.

This is still going on , it is free money if you are a DirectV user. They are NOT going to call you and offer anything , but it is a pretty painless call to make. Just ask for your loyalty discount !

...bloodsuckers are taking more than I'm willing to give. Gonna go Roku with DirectTvNow, Sling, YouTubeTV or something like that.

DirectTV ain't gonna work for us in Florida....rains everyday for 5 or 6 months out of the year. Just say no to rain fade.

I dropped spectrum tv for YouTube tv and haven’t looked back. All the espn channels including Espn news and espnu. Sec network and all the fox sports channels for $35 per month.

Also includes unlimited dvr. Still have spectrum internet as they are the only isp in my area but paying 100 per month for tv and internet sure beats paying almost 170

I was expecting a prank, but ended up saving $20 per month myself! They said I was eligible for $60 per month, but apparently my previous complaint phone calls used up $40 of that. So “technically” yeah I’m saving a total of $60 per month.

Thanks Esso!


We might put DirectTV out of biz...

I just shared it with 10 neighbors and all of them called. Saved anywhere from $40-$60. I know they will share with friends as well.

As a subscriber since 2003, I was able to get my bill down to $68/month. Thanks for the tip! Here is another... call every 6 months and ask for customer retention. Threaten to leave and you can usually get a bill reduction plus some free premium channels.


Thanks EC2! Called this morning. Number goes straight into

the loyalty discount call answering folks. No menu! Got $60 per month as well for 12 months, and Showtime for 4 months. Did verify that I don't have to cancel the Showtime. It will just disappear. Guess my Wife can't say Tigernet is totally useless now!

Good information. I call them every time my discount expires

and usually get at least $50 off per month for a year but this August I got the $60 off for 12 months like your relative! Merry Christmas!

Sorry to bust everyone’s bubble, but apparently this is NOT legit. We tried calling the provided number first thing this morning and got some automated message in all Spanish. Decided to call the main Directv customer service number and when we asked for the loyalty discount, the rep said it is a scam making the rounds on social media. Without prompting she spouted off what the deal would supposedly do for customers.

So don’t be surprised if you next bill isn’t lowered as promised.

Posted: Dec 16, 2017 10:15 AM
 

all they asked for is name and phone # (which they would have anyway if they have caller ID).

Hey - it'll either save me $720 or save me nothing. All it cost me was about 5 minutes of my time.

Just to make sure I called a legit DTV service rep, I logged onto my account tonight. Sure enough recent transactions showed the $60 credit had been applied yesterday evening.


96NCtiger, it is legit, you must have called a wrong number

Thirty minutes after calling, I logged into my account and the discount was already showing up.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I was a loyal DirecTV customer for over a decade. Got nothing but screwed and a lot of home shopping channels. Now I'm saving over $100/month because I dropped them and stream what I want a-la-carte, through Playstation or Hulu Live or Sling or Prime. . .or simply watching good ol' fashioned antenna TV.

Again, it's good you helped people save what they can, but I hope no one got roped into extending their commitment.


I got the discount without any contract extension, and the

I just took EssoClub2 's advice...
$45 discount plus Showtime.
(Wife wanted Hallmark Movies and Mysteries - i told her it was broken)
So... for all of you ''free'' TNetters that took advantage of Esso's tip, I recommend you at least upgrade to the entry-level donor package.
This is a petty cool platform... let's help 'em make it even better.
