I was considering getting an X-Box.I get the ticket free though my X-Box console. That's all I'm saying.
I bitch and moan every year about the Ticket cost. Then my wife will remind me it would cost more to go to one game. That aleives my cheapness for the moment and I just pay the damn thing.Have had Sunday Ticket since 1997. Never complain about the price because it has so much entertainment value for me.
So you give them more of your money all at once, instead of holding on to it yourself for longer....Every bank and investor in the world would say that's a terrible idea lol...I was considering getting an X-Box.
How does that work? Stream or Directv? Never had one before. TIA

One thing I don't do is pay incrementally. I would rather pay the whole amount up front and not have my bill go sky high for 6 ****ing months.
I think El Calebra should try some of this, especially if hes been with them multiple years, could probably save a whole lot of moneyHere's my strategy. I re-up my contract 2 mo before football season every year. I only sign up for 1 year, and usually able to get Sunday Ticket for free. If they give me any pushback I say thanks but no thanks. Then call back to cancel by telling them I will just sign up for Redzone with my cable provider and get my service costs dropped and get NFL Sunday ticket for free.
Sign one year contracts
The longer you are a customer, they better deals you get.
I just switched to ATT and you get 42 dollars in saving a month on Direct TV. And I called Direct TV 2 weeks ago about my bill. And ask about the football package, and the lady told me she couldn’t find a charge for it. I ask if it was a promotion, she said no. That it just looks like there not going to change you for it this season. But to call up a week before the season starts to make sure.I've had direct tv since 1997 and gotten the nfl ticket every year; started getting the baseball package in 2011. Always got great deals on the baseball- sometimes they'd even give me more in credits than the actual baseball package cost(ie - 20$ off a month for a year = $240 but the baseball package only costs $180). Never got good deals on football, maybe $5-10 off per month. Last year they gave me zilch on the baseball, and I NEVER paid anything close to full for baseball; often never even paid half. Since ATT took over customer service has sucked balls. But with baseball, considering the amount of available games it's really nitpicking if you divide the price of the package per game- it's still a steal. I do call up and threaten to cancel, go to supervisors, but in the last two years they do not yield very much. I think it has to do more with ATT- previously Direct TV would always work with me and do something. But really, other than football baseball and the news I pretty much don't watch tv anymore. Netflix has all I need.
