I have a model 301 receiver that I had used on my account a few years ago before the last smart card swap. Until now I hadn't had a use for it, but now I would like to reactivate it. I called Dish and was told that a new smart card would cost me $59.95, but that I could possibly get one for less from a retailer. He specifically mentioned WalMart, which seemed strange to me as WalMart hasn't carried Dish equipment in a long time (I bought this receiver there on closeout about 7 years ago). I looked at Dishstore.net and Clyde doesn't appear to stock them. Will I have to go through Dish or is there another less expensive route?

Consider adding the DHPP, then they'll send you the new card for free (that's what I did). When you cancel the plan you'll have the $25 fee, but that sounds cheaper than what you are considering.
