My 12 month courtesy discount of $15 per month has expired so I requested it be renewed and received an offer to for a 2 year price lock on my AT 200 programming fee at $74.99 with an additional 2 year commitment (which I don't mind), but It looks like they are also trying to add a $10.00 Hopper fee to my bill which wipes out most of the savings I would get.

Has anyone else seen this offer.

Is this a new fee Dish is trying to impose for your first receiver?

Not new. Standard DVR/Hopper fee is $15.

$10 is the discounted rate. Available on AT120 and above, IIRC.

I pay the full $15 since I have Welcome Pack, which is not eligible for the $10 discounted price

Is that the Hopper DVR Service Fee. The wording is slightly different, it just says Hopper, Hopper/Sling Hopper3 fee $10. The Hopper DVR Service has been $15 in my bill.

Got the straight word from DIRT.

The Preferred Customer Offer is $15 off AT120 and up (includes 4 Latino packages) and $5 off the Hopper DVR Fee plus a 2 year price lock on programming.

All I had to do was agree to a 24 month commitment with Dish (been a Dish customer since 2003).

Not sure who is eligible, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Since we just upgraded to the H3 in December the 2 year commitment really only moved the goal post 5 months and saves me more than $500 over the next 2 years.

I got the Preferred Customer Offer (back when it was still called the Renewal Offer) on Flex Pack in 2016. I will have to see if Dish is still offering anything like that when my contract expires in October. If not, there is always Welcome Pack.
