:welcome to Satelliteguys spencer7779!

I'd ask Directv what your extra charges will be. They should know.

Yeah, that is it. Works out to $150. I have never had a problem with the cc company or Directv in the past. I am very wary of at@t, been screwed by them in the past. Still trying to find out what fees I would be paying.

Sounds like a scam to me ....

Was he allowed to choose a package he wanted, or did they chose that for him as well ?

It doesn't show any packages that I could tell.

All this to avoid att ...

Does he know that his money at least a good portion of it is still going to D/ATT ?

Essentially, this company works as a reseller.

This is fairly common with internet affiliate rebates. Discover card offers 5% on Apple. I once called with a question after the next day after placing an order and I did not get the cash back. Their response was that calling voided the cash back but they gave it to me as a courtesy.

The logic is if the retailer (directv in this case) has to be involved in the order the affiliate (barclays) isn't entitled to their commission, which they then give you a portion as a rebate.

I'm always early of big affiliate offers as there are too many things that can kill the kickback. In this case, even something like rescheduling installation could be an issue.

The link took me to Directv website, than I chose the package I wanted. I know att bought directv, but directv has the package I wanted. I was offered a similar deal from Bank of America,

Normally these places offer the same discounts that you get from D* or less.

*shudder* this sounds like such a scam. when the guy shows up for the install, i wouldn't let him out of your sight. he'll probably wreck your home. and dont let him leave if the bo:mad: or boxes) arent active (showing live TV).
