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...)

375$ credit in Edmonton but you have to push

The $375 credit is in Edmonton as well. I noticed that when I was at the Edmonton South Office, I asked the person there about it and initially she said $200. I then told her about others who have reported that it was $375. She started to search. I could see what she was checking and on Shaw's intranet site was a menu item called equipment. Under equipement was a link to where she found this. It was a spreadsheet where all the equipment was listed and what either the trade-in or trade-up price is. The $200 dollars is for a dct6208 trade-in.
I also found out that the DCT6412 is warrented for 3 years and apparently it is noted on the bill of sale when you buy it from shaw. If you don't see it, demand it. The dct6208 is only for one year.
Thats one reason for me thinking HARD about trading in my DCT6208.
