Note for new customers, the AAA discount is in addition to the other offers you see all the time for new customers.

For existing customers, here is what I got:
$50 rebate on my next months statement and $50 rebate on the 13th month with an additional 12 month commitment. I thought this was pretty good. FYI, my CSR was a woman named Corey.

They did ask for the first 6 digits of my AAA card number.

Thnx, OP. I'm giving this a try ASAP.

The Doob

TYOP!

Thanks OP.

I am fed up with Comcast finally, and looking at Direct TV. Anyone know any good deals to combine with this?

Thanks OP. It's rare for them to actually include existing customers... says so right in the details.

Thanks OP. Dad's a AAA member and DTV customer, so it's hot for him!

Saved me a $100 - easy call!

Thanks, OP. Easy $100.

Thanks OP.

good deal but for existing customers it extends your contract for 1 year.

I just upgraded my system less than 2 weeks ago. Would I still qualify for the rebate?

What's the cheapest plan they offer to new customer? Never try DirecTv before.

Doesn't cost to ask!?

Great find!

my contract is up in April of this year, so I'm not going to bite on this.....

They want to bait you into sticking around once your contrat is up so if you call to cancel, I'm sure they will offer a heck of a lot more than the 50 bucks that they are offering through this service.

Poop.
I was hoping to be able to use my CAA (Canadian affiliate of AAA) number but it didn't work.
I live in the States now, but still have a CAA membership.

Not a hot deal, but a co-worker just told me they've pulled HDNet, UniversalHD, etc, and made them EXTRA-COST channels now, no longer included in the HD package, because they don't have SD counterparts. Anyone know if this is true?

yup saved $100 - additional year commitment - sweet OP thanks

They did pull UniversalHD, MGMHD and a few others to an HD extra pack that costs $4.99 extra, but HDNet filed a lawsuit to keep it in the original package and they won. I think there are a total of 5 or 6 channels in the extra pack. Not worth it to me.

True however you get them for 3 months free - then $4.99 for those channels. Also your post has nothing at all to do with this AAA deal. I doubt many people would cancel because of this - Directv has the NFL Ticket & the most channels in HD right now. Go troll elsewhere

For those worried about the additional one year commitment, I read this to say that you get a $50 rebate now and the second in 13 months. Wouldn't this mean that you get at least $50 just for calling now?? I made the call and still don't quite understand what happens if I cancel before the 13th month.

FWIW - as long as DirecTV is the only game in town for the NFL package, I'm not going anywhere...

BTW - almost forgot - Thanks OP!!

what's their lowest cost package? new customer time contract and installation cost?

That's exactly right. Existing customers should probably only bite if they are already in an agreement that wouldn't be affected by this.

vickh said: what's their lowest cost package? new customer time contract and installation cost?

I believe it is $29.99 for a 2 yr commitment installation is usually free for new customers - you would need a line of sight to the southern sky

what have people gotten recently when they called out of contract to cancel?

Very nice, thank you!

Thanks LBJ, were stylin'...:p

Had to extend my contract with DirecTV though

For those who aren't currently AAA members but do have DirecTV (like myself), I started this thread:

Special for new AAA membership


Hope it helps. And thanks, OP.

I don't watch football, I am considering getting DirectTV for the first time because of this discount, and that info could affect my decision. Thanks Jwardl!

I really varies, I got 2 free HD-DVRs, but there are a couple threads dedicated to that
http://www.fatwallet.com/t/18/762355

Wow!!! This is going to be awesome if it works!! Thanks OP

vickh said: what's their lowest cost package? new customer time contract and installation cost?

I believe it's $49.99. And I don't think there is an installation fee, but it is a 2 year contract.

what is the lowest cost after this offer?? they are claiming
$49 pak to get this??
should be
$29 less the $10?????????????? and what HD equip are they
giving?

Isn't this thread on getting $$$ off DirecTv? I think it's pretty hot and I THANK YOU OP - hooked my Mom up for the rebates. As far as the people s*#&$ing on DirecTv to each his/her own right?

This looks like a good deal for people already planning to get 1. I'm on the fence so need help from you guys. I never had cable, so sorry in advance for these questions.

The Family package is pretty weak, so I would need to get the Choice 1. Would like to hookup 2 TVs, so what would my cost be?
Extra cost for HD receiver?

Monthly Cost:
$50 Choice Package
$10 HD Access fee
$5 HD receiver lease fee
Guessing, there would be some kind of taxes involved so, roughly how much?
Premium channel is extra $5?

Yes, I see DTV has promo of $10/mo for 12 months and $50 Visa GC, but like to estimate the cost after the promo. Since I need a 2nd HD receiver, would it be better to get the Choice Xtra+HD Access for $15 more per month? Thanks.

EDIT: Looking over the options, my best bet would be to get the $65 package since has FREE hd receiver and accress plus 3 months free of premium.

Just take your card to your local AAA office, and they should be able to transfer it.

Nice find, but I'm currently a AAA and a DTV customer. My current contract expires 10/2009...I don't think I'm ready to extend it out another year right now, but that may change.

nice one op, thanks!

I'm not sure it matters. In my experience, they've never tagged an extention on to the end. They've only been able to extend from the current date, so a year agreement when you have more than a year left will have no effect. Things may have changed, but that's been my experience. If anyone knows differenly, please post.
