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...)

For the love of humanity,

why in the WORLD was I not able to get a credit for my 6208 at the end of January when I upgraded in Edmonton. I also went to their office in person.
I got the credit for my 6208 in Edmonton...I just showed up, and she pulled out the sheet mentioned above that had that $$$ quote on it. I guess it just depends on who you get at the desk at the time.

Ok, it's official. I'm going to try this. I can't recall...anybody get this in Vancouver? Do you repackage it in the box etc, or just bring the unit in?
I didn't repackage it...but you have to make sure to bring in the original component/audio cables, the remote, and that short piece of coax you got with the unit.

I also bitched about the unusable HD reception when they turned encyrption on, and then promptly dropped the price of the unit right after they fixed it, and managed to get an additional $150 credit on my bill.
