"But I also like savings dee money...
What I want to know is, why are new customers essentially getting the Ticket for free, but existing customers get fucked?
I'm sure you've all seen the commercial...genius, BTW.Opulence, I has it"I jump een it."
So, you pay for the Ticket and you get the premium package free for 5 months? That's basically $500 in your pocket, man.
I'm callin' those mofos tonite...
Managed to essentially get the Ticket for nuttin'.
Bitched and moaned about how as a longtime customer, I'm getting screwed while the noobs get the goods for free. The rep told me that was a new subscriber deal only, but as others have mentioned, she gave me $20 off for the next 6 months without hardly a whimper. Told the chick that wasn't good enough...gonna switch to U-verse, blah, blah, blah...they then issued me an additional $10 credit on my HD programming for the next 6 months.
I figured I maxed out my discounts at that point, but I continued to press, anyway. She told me that she was trying to do an end run around their software to give me essentially the same deal as new subscribers, but she wasn't able. Something about only allowing "x" amount of credits per time or somethin'. Anyway, she gave me an additional $20 off for 6 months, but I've got to wait until after the Ticket credit expires.
All in all, I'd say it was worth the 40 minutes I had to spend on the phone to get it.
Now, I've finally got some disposable income to order my pet mini giraffe.
