Any not got Sky who want Sky+ for £49.

I'm looking to upgrade my Sky to Sky+. If I refer "a friend" you get it for £49 instead of £99 and I get it free.

Long shot but if anyone interested please let me know !

I think you should offer somone half your saving to make it equal.......

i agree, i would be interested if that was the case

Why not !!!.

£24.50 cash back from me to anyone who takes up this deal on my behalf. Payable by cheque once this actually goes through and I get my Sky+, of course !

Therefore it shouldnt cost either of us more that £84.50 with installation or £24.50 if you take multiroom.

No time wasters need apply. lol

Now this time I have excelled !!!

I called Sky and winged about the price of Upgrading from Sky to Sky+. Threatened to leave !!!

They use the ole "Please dont go etc" so instead of £99 plus £60 installation they offered £49.50 plus £30 installation.

Due yesterday.

Had someone at home waiting and although they called in advance to confirm they were coming we had a no show.

Called them and made a fuss so they offered to come today (I rejected this) or Sunday and as a "Sorry" half priced my package for 3 months. Saving £65.25 in total

This make SKY+ upgrade £14.25.

Heres the good part...

Today they call me on the way to work today saying they are coming today. I knew full well this was a mistake but let them tell me when they would appear anyway.

Low and behold they did not try to show up so I called to make a further fuss !!!

Big sorry again and offer an additional months SKY free !!

Further saving £43.50.

So in short Sunday (God willing) I get upgrade to SKY+ as an existing customer as follows

SKY+ box £49.50 plus Installation £30 = total £79.50 from me !

Bad service compenstation = £21.75 x 3 plus £43.50 = £108.75

Therefore upgrade to Sky+ installed PLUS profit of £29.25 !

Well worth a few moaning phone calls on a non 0870 number dont you think !

Goldstink.

P.S. Claimed that I didnt have another telly in the house, LOL, so they are leaving my old SKY digital box in case i ever need it !

You must have got the best Sky customer services rep on the phone! I have phoned Sky several times in the past 12 months (customer for over 8 years) to complain that my original standard Sky box is worn out, and they won't do me any Sky+ deals or nothing! Even after I said i'd cancel they still offered nothing....and then they said they could arrange to get my old Sky box looked at! Great Zzzzzzz ...so I gave up heha.

i phoned to order sky with the free instalation....they came and said no way..as im 4 story's up..so they said we can send the expert guys out. they came out..and said no way...so we phoned an outside business and they said on the phone it would be £40 and when they came and had a look they said its gonna be £200 to put sky up...which should have been FREE....in my opinion, sky should pay for it, as it says free instalation... what does everyone else think???

also Goldstink i think you got lucky...well done tho!!

Thanks Gang !.

I think the key is to sound really broken rather than angry and rattle on about FREEVIEW and how you or your Partner, Friend, Parent etc had to take unpaid leave to wait in.

Still great fun getting one over on "THE MAN" !!

Mention out of pocket, how you want to just give up and watch FREEVIEW and disappointment and it all should work (hopefully)
