Retention deal - 60% off Sky TV Bundles with sky win back team £6 original bundle

Just got off the phone with the sky win back team, long story short they offered me this deal:

12 month contract
60% off all tv bundles for 12 months,

that worked out at:

£6 - ORIGINAL BUNDLE
£12.80 - VARIETY BUNDLE
£15 - BOXSETS BUNDLE (everything sky has apart from sports and cinema)

They also offered sky sports for £19 a month (didn't take it, but that's just me).

After agreeing to the £15 one (all sky channels, apart from their sports and cinema ones including HD and 300 BOXSETS) the sky rep said she'll remove me from the contract term so if I wanted leave before the 12 months were up I could.

This deal is for all customers thinking of leaving at the end of your contract.

Note: this isn't the Sky Q box or system the win back team can't offer anything for sky Q as that a "different team".

We get similar to this every year. 60% off plus £100 credit last time. There is a thread in Misc somewhere giving tips on how to get the best deal as they change all the time.

Good offer, I got this and £75 credit a couple of months ago. I think I pay about £1.75 a month for the original bundle. This offer was online via comeback offers.

Not sure they'll offer any bill credit this time but I hope they do. I got 60% off and £100 bill credit which meant they paid me £2 for having sky for 12 months

I had the full package for £30.30 last year just gone. I've cancelled and my services end on 17th Nov.....still waiting for them to ring me and offer me a decent deal!

Last oct I managed to get 60% off plus £100 credit this year I cancelled and managed to get 60% and £50 by calling them. I asked if they could do any credit. I have full sky tv package.

Christ sake. Was told the other day they no longer do full term 60% deals. Was only offered 50% for ten months out of twelve. I hate dealing with sky

I also got 60% off plus £100 credit this time last year, but they did still increase the monthly bill half way through the contract.

Got 60% off this time and £1 sky go extra. And no contract at all for 12 months.

Just been offered 60 percent off TV and HD and free broadband pleased with that

​Did you use live chat cancel your package on the phone wait 30 mins or so then get on live chat by clicking have you been a sky customer in the past twelve months bit then ask them what they can do for you

cancelled sky last month virgin installed yesterday got the new tivo v6 box and another for separate room and it's amazing. virgin have finally sorted the tivo box.

Standad retention deal. Chances are it'll reduce to 50% with about 2 weeks of notice to go. Was offered same deal 2 years in a row. This year wanted new box, but they couldnt/wouldnt do one with this. So let notice run out and started new contract with new box in wifes name-and cheaper deal.

Im in need of a new box too so in my notice period... Someone did offer me this deal last year when i tried to cancel, turns out the applied it rolling until 2022!! They guy today called me and was bamboozed at it... maybe its a deal i shouldnt get rid of so quick?

Ok to get a good deal just go on to live chat select the package you want abd let them give their 'best offer'. After that insist it is too high and you have a budget. It is also helpful if you show them the cashback deals etc available on quidco and ask them to give a better price. Eventually tell them what you're willing to pay and they will 'ask their manager' and you will probably get what you want. I managed to get the full package for £30 including sky q box so very pleased with that. It just takes a bit of time and patience but well worth the effor in savings. On the phone they tend to be less forgiving then over live chat.

Also. Ipresume i probably could have got the package a little cheaper but i was pressed for time. If anybody does want the full package there are people who pay closer to £25-£27 if you are willing to haggle for longer.

Wouldn't do anything over live chat for me, gave me a number to call where they offered 40% only, which I said I would think about.

What number did people use to call and did you just call or actually quit? I'll give them another go.

​but... i tried live chat SEVERAL times with no joy.. i had to ring up the left sky team to get a decent deal.. and i started the conversation with.. "Im ringing up hoping for an amazing deal because so far this mronong live chat have been useless" so they knew from the get go I didnt want to haggle anymore!!

Hi all - I phoned 2 days ago and have line, broadband, multi screen and tv for £95 pm. They only offered me 20% off. I called twice and went thru to retentions team.
What am I doing wrong?!?

You can get the same from currys for £30/month plus £50 gift-card

On live chat post all the cahsback deals you get from quidco. And tell them your willing to sign a deal now. If all else fails cancel ur sky and sign as new customer. Sky guy said if you switch your 1st and 2nd name youre a new customer again?!

Just had an email come through 75% off. Id try for that. Wont be going back though

Does anyone know if my partner, who lives at the same address as me, is classed as a new customer if she signs up and I cancel our existing subscription in my name?

Yep even if you live at the same address as long as its a different name its a new customer

You have to actually cancel before you get the good offers

​That would explain why they are being so stingy. Thanks

I had 75% off email as well, no talk of any credit though, and be careful if you want HD, it's still £6 per month on top of most packages.

Cancel then go to interactive on tv/sky box, my account, offers, you get 60%

Just got off phone to retentions team, 03442411720. They confirmed 60% offer from Interactive Service, which has t&c's that 60% is for the bundle only, you then add Sports etc.
They then offered me 60% off everything, so existing package at £30 and I can add Cinema for £2. So complete package, all services for £32, no tie in, lasts for 12 months - Very Happy with that

Was that for 10 months though, or 12?

I am going to cancel and buy a h.2s box from sat tech. £150 every sky channel. All thats needed is dish fitted and wifi. Good bye monthly costs.
