I signed up for the one year $29.99 "deal", then went online to complete the rebate form. They said it would take 2-3 months for the rebate to kick in.
By the time it became apparent that the rebate had not been applied, it was beyond the 90 day rebate period.
At first, DirecTV said they had no record of me applying for the rebate, then said an outside company handled the rebates.
When I threatened to cancel, they made some price concessions but not enough to make me whole. I like the product, but BEWARE, the rebate is a total scam!
