SKY and Loyalty Discounts

Yesterday i called sky to ask if they can give me a discounted price for the SKY+ box as I've seen it advertised everywhere. I've been a customer with them for almost 9 years but they just wernt budging with any discount at all unless i get sky broadband and sky talk which is not possible as i have had sky broadband and it didn't work properly in my area and also i cant get sky talk as my current ISP need BT to connect to the internet. after an hour from transferring to different departments and explaining the situation they were going round in circle and still couldn't provide be with any discount what so ever.

Has anyone else successfully claimed discount off of them as it seemed like they have no loyalty discounts in their company whatsoever

Had a free sky + box but only through saying i wanted to cancel to get a free box with someone else not a loyalty discount and ive been with them 8 years, most of the time on the full package. I also have multiroom and HD so was paying nearly £70 a month

I'm just about to phone sky to say we are leaving for virgin media to see what discounts or free offers they will offer us to stay...did they say what they would or could offer if you had all 3 ? As we have all 3..?

They offer you the world if you try to leave them.

I was moving house, and got free installation, a new sky digibox, movie channels free for 6 months, and a % of the monthly fee - all because I said I'd rather leave :-)

I said I was leaving sky after being with them for over 10 years I told them my kids wanted virgin media because they where offering vplus for free (which was a fib) then they offered me skyplus for a discounted price of £45 including instalation which I was quite pleased with :-D That was about 6 months ago...

I just said i was going to leave and they gave me sky+ for free with free installation pretty much immeadiately. Had only been with them a year too
#6
When I moved house last year I got skyworld full package half price for 1 year which ended Feb 08... since got Sky+ for £49 free installation... it's the luck of the draw... depends on who you talk to on the day!
#7
i managed to get skyplus for free i threatend to leave them and they said they could only offer it me for £69, so i waited a few weeks called them back and said that although i didnt want to i would be leaving to go to virgin media as i have a little one and tend to miss all my programmes so been as they were offering a free recording box i felt it worth my while... was their nothing that you could do (sky) as i really could do without the hassle but would do if needs to. the guy offered me a free box their and then, he did offer me the sky talk but i declined it.

Sky sent me an offer to introduce a friend for a free Sky+ box but it says for brand new customers only, it says 'introduce a friend to Sky+ and we will give a free Sky+ box (worth up to £149) when they join Sky TV'

PM me if your interested and i will send you the reference number etc, might be worth a try, I will get £50 worth of M&S vouchers if you are accepted.

Have just phoned sky, said i was leaving and going to virgin media for a number of reasons, better package, vplus box, cheaper monthly cost etc etc.....at first they would only offer me sky + and installation for £49, so i said no, not good enough, so she went away and spoke to a manager and suddenly offered me Sky+ box and subscription for free, with no installation fee.....!!!! Engineer booked in for this saturday.

Just shows how desperate they are to keep customers.

:):):)

I asked about what deals they have for HD and the best she could do was £229 which included the cost of the box and half price installation.

Normal cost for HD is £299 and installation is £100, so it was a good discount but still not cheap enough for me to take up.

I called a year ago (called in may) and got free sky+ box with free installation because I asked to be put through to cancellations (they can offer the best deals) and said virgin had offered me a free v+ box with free installation. They offered half price, £49 etc, but I just kept saying, well I dont really want to pay anything and virgin are giving it to me for free. They tried to call my bluff and said that virgin dont offer that, but I just said they had because they knew I was a sky customer. Straight away they went to manager and got me it all for free.
#13
just called them again (Cancellations department) i told them i am looking to cancell and go to vigin media and he said he'll see what he can do for me and gave me a offer on 99£ plus free installation. i accepted as i was looking at that price anyway.
They are going to install on Monday now.
