My wife told me she had friends who got a huge holiday promotion discount so being the tightwad I am of course I called on it. Call in and ask for the holiday promotion- I got 50 bucks off a month for the next 12 months, no additional contract extension or anything at all. Now my tv bill is $23. I was shocked it was that easy but of course they are not advertising it. Phone number to call is
1-800-778-3397. Call now thank me later. Saved me 600 bucks this next year.

Mine was $60 as well. She said it is different for different people. Maybe based on how long you have been with them. I also got an additional $5 off my Showtime channels for 6 months.

So $65 off for 6 months then $60 for the following 6 months.

Worth a call for anyone that has DirecTV.

Might be a holiday scam?

Like he said, usually you get a recording with options to press-- not in this case.. A person answered right away and said AT&T? Strange...

I fully expected to hear a sultry male voice asking me what I was into but this actually worked. Took a little longer than 5 minutes but they saved me 85.00(per month-phone internet tv) total on all my services. Thanks for the heads up.
