Up To 375$ credit From Shaw to upgrade to 6412 HD-PVR

Just wanted to let people know that Shaw is offering credit on your old cable box to upgrade to the new 2-tuner 6412 HD-PVR. In my case, I returned my DCT-6208 to the Shaw office(Scurfield blvd. in Winnipeg) and was given 375$ credit to purchase the new unit.

I called twice on this before and was told by CSR's that there was no trade-up program but going to the office made all the difference.
I was there to trade in a faulty cable modem and decided to ask again since I was there. The woman nodded and asked her co-worker who had a printed form at her desk with a table of credit values.
Took in the 6208 the next day and had no trouble swapping for the 6412 box even though there were different people working. They didn't even ask where I bought the 6208(FS).
Cost just over 400$ after the credit including taxes.

Update: Posts below this one indicate that this program is being offered in other cities as well(Edmonton, Vancouver etc...)

You get $200 for the 5100 and then it scales up from there dependent on the Model. If the amount is not right, mention the fact that it is a trade in value because they have a different set of numbers for returns ...
Saw the numbers when I traded in my 5100 in Edmonton about 2 months ago <-- best-decision-ever.

It seems Shaw deals differently with each customer.
Sounds like a canned response to a question the responder is not sure off. Call customer service ... I did three times (along with the actual trade in) and every time the CSR had to check with someone what the amount was. When I actually went to trade it in, she went to her manager, who gave the answer without knowing anything about my account. The only time this would be different is if you are ending service with them and not getting a replacement.
