Best DirectV Deal out there! Get $200 costco giftcard plu...

Sean, If you have Bank of America, you can sign up through their BankAmeriDeals page to received $100 back with the new DirecTV service. I don't have BOA so I was not able to take advantage of this. You must pay your bill the first two months using your debit card to received the $100 rebate from what I looked at. That is really all the info I have on that. I will say that is pretty cool. You can get a $200 Costco Card, $75 Best Buy card through Viggle, $100 BOA rebate and a $100 referral credit. That has to be the best deal I have heard yet. That is if you decide to switch. I hope this helps out as well and if you have any other questions just let me know.  (Sep 25, 2013 | post #60)

This is the breakdown for the 29.99 package. You would get the choice package Cost 64.99 for the 1st 12 months you get a $35 dollar credit so it becomes 29.99. You would also get this year’s NFL package for free and HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz for free for 3 months. After 3 months it will cost $47.00 more per month so make sure to drop it before 3 months are up or you will be charged. You will also receive the referral credit of $10 for 10 months. So 10 months of $19.99 2 Months of $29.99 but months 13-24 of the contract it will jump up to $65.00 per month. You can call up after 12 months and complain about the sudden rise in the monthly cost and they will reissue you a $5 per month credit no matter what. I have not personally done this yet since I just started with DirecTV but I do know that two of my friends were able to get an addition $10 off per month during the same call. So you would be looking at $49.99 per month for those last 12 months. This is all just for basic receiver with no DVR for just 1 room in the house. If you add a DVR it is $10 more per month and if you add the HD DVR called the Genie it’s an extra $25 per month but they will give you a $10 credit for this receiver for the full 24 months so it’s just $15. There is also an addition fee of $6 for every extra TV you add satellite too. So quick break down of what it would cost per month. 1-2 months $29.99 Standard, $39.99 DVR, $44.99 Genie. 3-12 months $19.99 standard, $29.99 DVR, $34.99 Genie. 13-24 months $49.99 standard, $59.99 DVR, $64.99. Add $6 per extra room to monthly cost if wanted. So total cost for Standard is $759.88 -$200 (Costco Card) - $75 (BestBuy Card through Viggle) Referral is already included = $484.88 or $20.20 ($31.66 not deducting the cards) average cost per month. DVR $999.88 -$200-$75 = $724 or $30.20 ($41.66) average cost per month. Genie $1119.88-$200-$75 = $844.88 or $35.20 ($46.66) average per month. Just add $6 for any additional room. I also have to add that there is tax as well that ranges from $3 - $6 per month depending on where you live at what you get. I personally have 2 rooms with the genie because of the HD and DVR combo which means I can watch recordings on either TV. I hope this information helps out with what you asked and if you have any other questions just let me know.  (Sep 25, 2013 | post #58)

Save $100 on Directv (Direct TV) with referral code

Updated $200 Costco Card,$10 off for 10 months from referral, 200,000 Viggle points (trade in $75 Best Buy Card), and NFL Pkg. I read the posts and decided to give this a try but it didn’t work out the way everyone says it does. The information seems outdated, I believe it’s from people just copying and pasting this info with their account # added just for the referrals, much has changed. It won’t let you get the referral program unless you know what to do. I just went through all of this and here are steps to receive the referral program and possibly both promo’s. The road blocks are; 1) You can’t combine Costco Promo with the Referral Program online, it sends you a message saying you can’t combine. 2) Viggle or Costco Promo can’t be combined with any other offer To get around these you will invest a bit of your time. 1) Just follow this link http://www.costco. com/directv.html ... 2) You should see DIRECTV Costco cash card promotion page. Click on "Click HERE" box. It should take you to DIRECTV Costco Connection Center. This will activate the cash card promotion. You will see a message that says “The site you are transferring to isn’t hosted by Costco.” Click O.K. and you will come to a new page. Make sure that it says “Costco” in upper left corner so you know you are still getting the promotion. Click the “View All Packages” button 3) Enter zip code. Go through and pick out your package, the receivers, and any other equipment you would like. Side note the new Genie is fantastic. 4) Press the “Proceed to Checkout” and it will show you the cost, what discounts that have been applied, and what you would expect to pay per month. 5) This is where everyone else’s information goes wrong; the referral link will give you a notice saying “promotions can’t be combined” no matter what you do..So continue with the check out program, set up your install appointment, and finish up your order. 6) Use your smart phone; download the Viggle app. Set up a new account and make sure that you use the same email address that you used for DIRECTV. 7) Call DIRECTV immediately after both are done. Use this #, 1-800-531-5000, it is the direct # to DIRECTV not the #’s linked to the promotions. Enter your # and then 2 for change order. Be polite and joke around to help the cause. Say you have 2 things that you forgot when ordering online. 1st you would like to add the refer program. Do not mention the Costco promotion; they can’t see it on their end so they will add the discount. They will ask for an account number, Please use my account number “77346251” and they will have to verify the last name on my account “Minnick” 8) Say you saw a Viggle promotion right after you signed up and would like that to be applied to your account. I did this for myself and I was successful but when I did the same thing for my Father-in-Law it didn’t so it’s 50/50 whether you get this. They will tell you that you have to cancel your online application and redo it using the Viggle website. Explain to them that you just spent 1 hour going through all of that and don’t want to redo it, politely ask if there is anything they can do because this would be a huge inconvenience, you don’t have the time to redo it right now, and don’t want to lose your installation date. They will get a supervisor and may apply this to your account. The kicker is if they don’t give it to you ask if they can do anything else for the trouble and when I did this for my Father-in-Law I received and extra $5 off for 12 months. So instead of Viggle points ($75 Best Buy card) you get an extra $60 off your package instead. 9) Enjoy. We both received the Costco cards about 4-5 weeks after we signed up in early July and I still have to what 53 more days until my Viggle account will have the points added. I hope this helps everyone out and I thank you in advance for using my account number and name. If you have any questions let me know because I will be watching this site and would be glad to help.  (Sep 23, 2013 | post #79)

Sorry about the delay, I have this site set up to let me know when a new post is submitted but it never updated to let me know so again I'm sorry about the delay. Yes it will actually arrive anywhere from 10 days after signing up to 4 weeks. That has been the time frame for the people I talked to. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please let me know.  (Sep 19, 2013 | post #55)

BBB, The reason why is most people that put these instructions on the site are using a copy and paste from what many other people have used for instructions and have not actually signed up for Direct TV in a while. They changed the referral link in the beginning of July so that it will not let you do both. I have found a way around it and it worked for me and 3 other people so far. I have a post that explains everything you need to do. I will post it again after this and if you have any questions please feel free to ask. Hope this helps, Mr. Minnick  (Sep 9, 2013 | post #52)
