no more discounts

February 24th, 2006 at 06:08 am

walked with mom for 55 min

Got my DirecTV bill today and the $5 discount I've been getting for the last 6 months is finally gone and I have to pay full price again. Plus they sent a statement saying they're raising the price $3 a month starting next month.

I'll have to start paying attention to the cable and dish TV offers that come through to see if I can get a better deal.

My results from my blood tests are in and as I suspected, my diabetes is not in control anymore. In fact it's the worse it's been. That means more prescriptions. Bleagh. Have an appointment to meet with the Dr again on Monday for scripts.

Finished listening to the library book on tape Visions In Death by J.D. Robb. Mystery/Romance. Excellent series.

    If you do find a better cable or satellite deal, often you can use those as leverage with your current company. That way you may be able to avoid the hassle of switching. Just a thought!

    I think when I got my discount from directtv, it required a 1-year agreement. You may want to double check if they did this with you, too, to find out if you can switch.

    If you are not tied up in a contract, call DirecTV and tell them you want to cancel. They will transfer you to the sales retention department. They will first ask you why you want to leave DirecTV, you have been such a great customer. Tell them you are not satisfied with the cost of the programming, it's getting too expensive for your budget. They will say they completely understand and don't want to lose you as a customer. Tell them you want to cancel today. They will offer you six months to a year of discounts. Then they will offer you free programming (movie and sports). If you want to stay and enjoy DirecTV, take the first option. Then when the discounts run out, call back.
