sibble-comp and S.Chan, Sorry I haven't replied sooner. I have been away and using a smart phone for keeping up and missed this thread somehow.
Here is my current bill (really not at all similar to yours, s-c):
Double Play Discount -10.00
Tier 2 11.00
Basic Cable 40.95
HD Plus Package 12.00
Monthly Services Total $127.95
Total Monthly Bill $134.35
(NOTE:When I call in and ask about my account, the reps tell me they can see the first item on my account is the '-$5.00 Purchased Modem' discount but they can't explain to me why it doesn't actually show up on my printed bill. Can you say 'rip off'?)
Under the 'new' offer, I am getting:
All of the above for $114.92, tax included.
This is for 12 months and I was told after that time I can 'call and see what they can offer me at that time'. The 'pitch' for the above is that BB50 is 'free' for the 12 months and the Phone is only $5/month. Phone is supposed to have free North America long distance and three calling features: Call display, Call Waiting and Voice Mail. The new modem for BB50 is a 'free rental' to go with the service. I guess the discount comes from the 'loyalty' people/department/program or whatever you or they might be calling it.
I am actually on the phone right now with a rep checking it all and he has confirmed it. He also just offered me Movie Central, that includes Movieclub, for 2 months at half price. Regular price is $17/mo so it will only be $8.50 for the first couple of months, further reducing my 'new' bill. After the 2 months, the price will go up to the regular $17 if I decide to keep it and the total monthly bill will be right at $120, all in. That's still almost $15/mo less than I am paying now and I would have all the Movieclub content I have now along with the SD movie channels and the two HD ones, including HBO Canada as well as included VOD programs.
Kind of a sweet deal so I'm looking forward to seeing if it actually all comes through today or if it will take a day or two to actually get sorted out.
If you can then do rather than not. You're your own worst enemy. They're parking their car over there.
