    I did on Saturday(7/31) and got what I think to be a great deal: 2 HD DVR's (the first one free, the second was only $70.98 (as opposed to $99 on D* website!), and 1 standard HD receiver for $84.99 (again cheaper than the D* website), $180 Costco Cash back, and the best part: Choice Ultimate with FREE hd for life (as long as I signed up for auto bill pay)! It even showed up on my confirmation email from Directv later than day. Ordering through the D* website you have to subscribe to Premier to get free hd for life. Total cost for equipment: $198.16 (incl. tax and the $25 internet conx fee), monthly charge for the first 12 mos. :$59.99. Monthly charge for the last 12 months: $88.99. Installation is setup for Wed. night, we'll see how it goes. I'll post an update once they leave...

    That's true, although the D* website gives you $100 off the 2nd HD DVR. I just loaded up a "mirrored" cart of what I ordered on Saturday and the price (pre-tax) was $223. I would be paying about another $14 in taxes, so my "out-the-door" price on the D* website is about $237. So I saved about $40. The better thing, I think, is the free HD for life. I just checked the D* website again and it is only available with Premier, whereas I was able to get it by just going with Ultimate. I originally wanted Choice Plus, but was told by the salesperson at Costco I needed at least Ultimate for the free hd. Like I said in my earlier post, though, we'll see how it goes with the install and activation tomorrow night.....

    BigMike75 -

    Did you sign up at a store or online? Or over the phone?

    I signed up yesterday online, via the costco website. It sent me over to the directv site, with a costco banner on top, to complete my order. Prices are the same as just going through Directv normally, as far as I can tell. And I got no indication that my purchase was registered for the costco cash card deal.

    Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I feel I may need to cancel and reorder but I don't know.

    Thanks!

    I did it in store as I have read (and can confirm) that you get better deals that way. The installer is here as I type this putting up the dish. I am only slightly bummed in that I got the HR22-100 HD dvr's, though, but I guess that's not that big of a deal.
