OPTION 1: If you want 75% off your sky tv, follow these simple steps.

1.Put in a request to cancel your sky ( they may initially offer you 25% off or even 50%, don't listen just proceed with cancelling)
2. You may get calls offering you 50% or less, again stick with cancelling.
3. After 3 weeks call the offer phone number 08442 411 914 OR 08442 410 973(NEW NUMBER- OLD NUMBER NO LONGER ACTIVE) if you do not receive the leaflet offering 75% off. I tried it, and it works.
You can also get multi-room half price. Do not mention this when you take up the 75% offer, call them back after a day or two. But when you do call, say you received it in the post, I tried this and I got it immediately.

NOTE:
Sky advisors chat total crap! They just want to convince you that the price they offer is the best. When you get the initial call of 25% off they wont budge! It's as though they have convinced themselves that is the best you are going to get, don't listen and proceed with cancelling! The 50% off department will be next. why pay so much extra, just wait 3 weeks and get 75% off!! Best of luck! In a way, you wont be left without any sky if you do this on the third week of cancelling. It's about time existing customers got better deals than new!!!
It doesn't cost sky anything to enable the signal to your box, that's why they can do this so cheap as they have been for years.

nexus76 is in his 5th year of doing this!
New number is 08442 411 914- thanks to junglist

IF YOU CAN'T WAIT AND WANT 50% OFF:
Thanks to dazren :
Cancelled and one month later just got a card through today offering 50% off for 12 months (any package) plus 6 months free Sky Go Extra (need to cancel this part as they will charge £5pm after the 6 months are up otherwise). Call 08442 411 192 and give code CL32A. Hope this helps someone
UPDATE 18/07/2015. Many people are having great success when attempting this. Some are also being offered 60% off the full tv package including HD, £100 bill credit and 10 pounds off line rental plus free broadband! It obviously depends who you speak to but it just goes to show that there is plenty of flexibility to get some cracking offers! Best of luck

OPTION 2: Try this to save up to £140 on your SKY

IF you don't want to go down the above route of trying to get through to Customer Services, listening to Green Sleeves on repeat, then to be cut off, try this..

A. Log into your account at sky.comCLICK ME

B. Find the "thinking of leaving sky" page here CLICK ME

C. At the bottom of that page it says "Still looking to cancel?" Click on the SKY TV option underneath

D. If you are eligible for a discount you should be directed to a questionnaire page, it'll then ask you why you want to leave with various options, click ''Worried about cost''

E. If eligible you'll again be re-directed to a page offering you a discount on your sky package, depending on what you have, it'll offer you up to 20% off or if your lucky maybe more....

F. If then happy with the discount, read through the T&Cs carefully, click confirm and it'll then update on page with your new monthly cost/bill.

G. Go to the pub

H. Please note that the above will sign you up to a new contract, if you're not happy for a min 12 months then best avoid!

I got 100% off for 6 months after refusing their 50% for 1 year offer.



Maths fail.

will1407

does anyone have a pic of this leaflet / flyer?And what reasons do people … does anyone have a pic of this leaflet / flyer?And what reasons do people give for leaving?


there..is...no...flyer..or..leaflet...
do this:

enter live chat

decline any offer they throw at you

you say: "I want to leave because it costs too much"

they say: "lets see what we can do, we can offer you 5% off for 8 days"

you say: "thanks but I want to cancel and I am in a rush"

they say: "ok we will start your cancellation process, here's the details, this is your 30 days notice"

you say: "ok great thanks bye"

you then make a cup of tea and enter live chat again after 10 minutes

use this link this timeComing back to sky

you say: "Hi I've had a letter offering me £100 credit, 60% discount and 50% off multiroom if I come back to sky, I would like to accept this offer"(if you want to look less greedy, don't mention the multiroom offer as they offer it to you anyway 9/10 times)

they say: "great news, let me see about adding this offer"

you say: "cool beans brotha"

they either say: "I will add this offer to your account now, let me go through some details and payment updates with you"
or "I can add this offer but I can only give you £50 account credit" (if you are happy with £50 say yes)
or "What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?"


you then either agree, agree or say "ok never mind thanks anyway" and leave chat

if you don't get this deal the first time, try again and again, remember you have 30 days to get this deal

note down the person who you talked to each time and if you get the same person end chat to avoid looking silly

Have you got a copy of the 75% off leaflet?

No sorry, but I can assure you this works. I'm currently paying 19.75 for the whole sky tv package including one multi-room(excluding HD), If you do a search on hotukdeals for expired 75% off offers, you will see some have uploaded copies of the leaflet. Although the date on the leaflet would have expired, the offer is still on going. I guess it depends who you get through to when you call sky, the person I spoke to just put it through immediately and this was A WEEK ago so it must be on going!

Be careful though that they don't screw anything up if you've girl broadband through them as well. We cancelled Sky (because we moved and new flat had Virgin) giving our month notice. Two days after we cancelled we got a letter from BT saying that yet had disabled our landline as we requested. Called them but they said it would take ages to re-activate so ended up having no broadband for four weeks. (I know this is only relating to TV but after what we've gone ugh rough with them I'd never dare to try this)

will try thanks

I knew they were lying...the gits told me they weren't doing this deal anymore when I took a 50% off deal, may have to cancel now!

Sorry to hear that! I guess its better not to give one company total control of your landline and tv, because then if you try to cancel one, the deal you have on the other would go! I have EE broadband, and got a very good deal of 19 pounds a month including line rental, 1000 minutes to uk mobiles, and unlimited calls to Europe, and America. I also get 5 pounds off my orange bill. If I had sky broadband, I would never had got 75% off my tv, or a deal like that on my land line

12 months :), just do the same thing on your 11th month and you should be fine.

Will try this soon!

Sky is soooooooooo expensive! Kids would love if I could justify it but it would need beaming to 3 TVs lol.

Well done for the very helpful post. Heat added :-)

Will try. But I always seem to get the jobsworth who is happy to take the gamble to the cancel stage. I always buckle before the good deals.

It's not a guarentted. I've had friends cancel. Some have received this and some have not and had their sky disconnected.

best bet is to cancel and get freeview. cold

Let them take it to the cancellation stage...this is where the ball goes into your court. As you will still have sky tv for a month as this is your one month NOTICE to cancel. Now they will try to get you back offering 25% or 50% , just wait and call the specific number after 3 weeks. Best of luck, and remember if you get put through to a clown, hang up and try again! Many of my friends have tried this with a 100% success rate

Thanks. Contract just come to an end for our first 12 months. Wanting £27/mth for entertainment extra. Did get a chunk of cashback and M&S vouchers when signing up but do not want year 2 to cost £324.00 so this looks great.

When you call on week 3, you make a point that you have received it. If you persist it will work.

I work for sky and this will not work all the time no matter how much u assure people. This is misleading and I would say spam. Just become friends with a sky employee and get 50% for new customers through them. As I do for all my friends at least that way ur guaranteed the discount

Have some heat. A useful post for those out of contract. Thanks op

Well, if you work for sky, which department do you work in? I have a friend who works in this same department, and say you will eventually get it, as sky have nothing to loose.

It's not really awkward is it?, when you reconnect you will get a minimum of 50%! surely if you work for sky you should know this?

Im not pulling numbers out of the air. Everyone I know who has cancelled has initially been offered 25% off, then 50% after a week or so. They got nothing to loose if they try this after 3 weeks, as the sky is still active. If worse comes to worse, you can call them and say i'l accept the 50% off. I assure you people wont be doing this for nothing, they'll be saving quite a bit.

Everyone won't get this, we've had this discussion before on here, it all depends on how long you have been with them in the first place and if you've left before, you certainly won't be able to do it every year.
I went back last year after receiving the 75%off leaflet and then left after the 12 months.
I have since had around 10 offers of 50%off for a year but no 75%.
Not that i would go back anyway now, dreambox does for me (_;)

I only had sky tv for a year previously, and it worked when I tried it

When you put in your request to cancel, do they cut off all your channels straight away???

No, you will still have your sky tv for a month, its one month notice. That's why when you call on the 3rd week to try and get the offer your sky tv will still be on. On the upside, they will call you non the less and offer around 50%

Sky are going downhill and unless they start to reduce their subs or offer these deals on a constant basis then they are doomed. They have lost a large part of their football rights to BT, this will impact them in the coming years, there are also now many other options via BB to receive different channels, this gives more choice and usually a one off fee.

The full TV package with Sky should be no more than £30 P/M and existing customers should be less as their equipment ages, worst thing for Sky is when you take a new deal with heavy discount 50-75% and then cancel after the 12mth period, as they will struggle to recoup the cost of the Box, Dish and Installation. That is why they are so keen to offer these deals after the first 12mths.

Unless you can get the full package for £30 or less give them a miss and look elsewhere, do some research and open up your choices using your BB connection.

I don't see a problem trying this. If it doesn't work in the third week the just cancel the cancellation notice.

In my 5th year of 75% off, when you get this Deal just canceling the last month as most who screw sky back know, then either do what post says or follow through the cancel and within the month ull get the flyer offer, I have been on this for 5 years and before that on 50% for 2 years prior as I didn't know this way yet. If your out of contract then cancel today as you can have get sky world with HD for 24 notes using this, just remember to cancel around 11th month to stop the charge going to full in 12th month, one more thing you can also get a new HD box and sell your old one on flea bay but if you take the new box you may be in a contract for 12 months depending on the person you speak too and win back department.
