Advertisements A page or so back I recounted my first two calls to retention, the first no real deal, the second =, $299 - $100 MiR, credit card or bill. The third csr same $299 - $100 mir, but must be credit card. Then came Glenda... "We've got a great deal", the new pricing came up on Aug. 1st??? $299 - $100,mir -$14.95,shipping credit - $36,six months 50% off HD - $66, six months free showtime. All on two payments on the bill. No $150 activation credit, but last week they gave me NFL-ST for $54.75, so I'm a happy subscriber. I believe that D* is poised for a major breakout, of course, I'm an optomistic happy person, and I find no reason to inflict the misery of my own life on innocent bystanders. edit: at one point Glenda said, let me see what you've got. I started to reach for my zipper, but realized she couldn't see over the phone, and must have been talking about the package I have with D*. It isn't so much about how long You have been there, but how much you spend lately.
