@stanleyarsog : yes but they send you an empty box aswell as a pre adressed sticker
2bluereef if you have relatives in canada cancel your programming and send them your receiver
@bigoranget : i don't know but the guy i talked to told me that they just started to offer the trade in my opinion if they want to put more channels they have no choice to do so

Hmm. I have been recently thinking about getting the 605 to replace my 505. You say you got it for $49.99 what about shipping etc..what is the full cost to you. Do they just add it to your bill or do you have to pay separately.? ie credit card. I may try calling to see if I can get this deal. I have been a client for about 12 yrs now and have never had any issues with old ST or new SD.
Thanks for the info.

49.99 for the receiver
+ 13 $ for shipping ( but u guys may catch someone who will ship it freely as i did)
it's billed on the bill so you don't have to pay upfront

The "209" is a standard definition receiver (DSR209), not the price. This person got two receivers plus install for free. That IS a great deal!

Well, just got off the phone with Customer Relations and got the deal $49 + $13 shipping to trade up to a 605. No issues. They did mention that this has not yet been made public so I should not be telling anyone.. so I'm not..:D.. the $13 covers shipping both ways. They did ask for my C Card but I said I would prefer this go onto my monthly bill, no issue with that either. Thanks Gretzky for the info.

While I do have a 505 I also have a 500 that I still use. I wonder if they will allow me to trade both in using this deal?

Is the 605 really worth the $50 extra? I have no issues with my 505s and if its just for the 14 day guide, i rarely use that anyways. Now if there was a trade in for a 630 thats different as i dont have a PVR and with UBB coming in a few days this would really help.

It will be worth it at least when they start going to MPEG4, or enable "plug in DVR". Today there is no user benefit to a 605 apart from the guide.

Me too

I got the deal, but they insisted on charging it to my C.C. It only applies to long term customers in good standing, so if you are a late payer you won't get the deal.
The rep tried to tell me that the HDMI cable that comes in the box is worth $150!! lol. Walmart $10.
My major issue for the swap was the HDMI switching problem with the DVI. The guy insisted I will have no problems connecting through my Sony STR700 receiver.

I got the deal x 2 !

One upgrade 505 to 605 and also one upgrade 207 to 605.

Now I need to find a bedroom HD tv.

They do a $199 bill charge x 2 and a $150 bill credit x 2

Hope the 605's work out OK.

No offer for me

I called Monday night but was told there was no such offer. I have only been with SD since August. I had wanted to wait until the 605 was out but they convinced me to take a 505 for $49. The reason I want the 605 is simply for space.

What magic words do I have to say to get this offer?
