I signed up for DIRECT-TV through QWEST our local carrier. I said I was referred by a friend.
Both QWEST and DIRECT-TV gave me the run around switching me back and forth. The bottom line is that DIRECT-TV has denied my referral because I did not go directly through DIRECT-TV. DIRECT-TV told me they do not accept referrals that go through QWEST. They new customer has to sign up directly through DIRECT-TV.
This is not fair to their Direct-TV customers who referred me. No one bothered to explained their guidelines on the referral deal. Why bother to offer a deal if you don't plan to honor it other then you are using your customers as free advertising tools. How shameful!
