Was he telling the truth or smoking baloney?
Honestly he's just a sales person trying to make a sale and get his commission.
No official new agreement has been made yet. When it does happen they will announce it on www.directvpromise.com
and all of the media outlets will be reporting it.
As for new deals I'd suggest waiting 3 more days because Directv's deals will be getting better.Starting on the 19th they will also be giving NFL Sunday Ticket Max for free and I think the 2nd year saving goes up $10 more than what's being currently being offered. NFL Sunday Ticket Max alone is worth $100 if you just have NFL Sunday Ticket basic you have to pay $100 to upgrade to NFL ST Max which let's you watch all of the games also on your IPAD, Android Tablet, Smart Phone, and PS3.It also gives you access to the NFL Red Zone channel, game mix channel, and has the fantasy football tracker.
I know the AAA deal of $10 off for 20 months will still be available. Not sure if the Costco $120 gift card deal and if Bestbuy will still be offering their deal after 7-18.
We will find out by this Thursday.
IMHO I think if you want to save money in the long run AAA deal is the best discount which is what I went with when I signed up last month. If you want money upfront I'd suggest the Costco deal for the $120 gift card.Bestbuy deal did not appeal to me because you had to spend $399 to get a $150 gift card.Edited by Filipinoyakuza - 7/16/12 at 10:00pm
