If you live in the Boise area and want to be able to watch every BSU football game at home you have 2 options: CableOne or DirecTV. If you want CBS Sports & Versus in HD, DirecTV is your only option (6 games this season are on these channels). And if you're looking to make the switch for as little $$ as possible, then check out these options:
Option #1 (UPDATE: EXPIRED): Switch to DirecTV and receive a $180 Costco Cash Card. Expires 10/5/11.
Option #2: Switch to DirecTV and be referred by me and we'll both save $100. You'll need my last name, account #, & phone #. Email me (leadtrumpetdave AT gmail) for these details. If you know someone else with DTV and want them to refer you, the promotion works for any customer.
Now, these 2 promotions are not supposed to be redeemed together, but, if you're feeling lucky, you can give option #3 a shot. It worked for me!
Option #3 (Since option #1 is expired, this one is too): Because the offers are not compatible you can't try this online; you'll have to bite the bullet and spend 30-45 minutes on the phone with a sales rep. (UPDATE: I've heard there is no runaround involved now. Just ask and they'll give you both.) Call 1-800-372-0199 and kindly explain to the rep that you want to receive the Costco card, but you couldn't find a way to be referred on the online order form. My rep said, "they are not redeemable together, but let me talk to my supervisor." She came back and said she would be able to do it, & I suspect this will work for most people.
If you think this is just an attempt to get referrals, you're half right! I also want all my fellow nuggies to be able to get a good deal on the best TV package for watching our Broncos.
Update: If you happen to be stuck in a contract with Dish or your cable company, DirecTV will pay you up to $200 (via cash card) to cover your cancellation fees!
