Sky basic package, variety, sports 123 half price 6 mths @ £20.50

Found 18th Dec 2010
I havn't been with Sky for a couple of years now. But still have the old box. I have heard people on HUKD who have been discounted packages, so i thought i'll try myself. I rang sky an spoke to a bloke who said he could offer me half price for 6 months. If i kept my old equipment, this worked out at 20.50 a month & no contract so i can cancel even after the 1st month. If i wanted to upgrade my box, it would be £60 for installation and £30.50 for my package. Hope this helps somebody.
I rang 08442411356.

anyone know of deals for current members

nice, but depends on who you speak to in order to get this deals, some operators are just idiots whereas other sort you out.

I rang Sky last week and asked if there were any deals showing on my account, lady said I had 2 showing, either half price for 6mths with the packages I already had or if I signed up to another 12mth contract I could have the entire sky package half price. I just halved the package I already had bringing it down to £14.50. They then rang me yesterday and offered me movie channels half price too - kids have been moaning for a while they cant watch disney films so I added that too.

Worth ringing and asking if anything showing on your account

I haven't voted either way but I guess the cold voters as like me don't see this as a deal. These are just retention offers which not all people will get. These types of threads are posted on a fairly regular basis.

As i have explained i have nt been with sky for a long time, approx 3 years. So i dont think this is a retention offer.
Thanks stiffnuts for your response.

Every time I have phoned and been polite and asked if there are any deals they have done some reduced price on sports/movies for me, I think they sometimes get a bad press for being unfriendly when it comes to deals. Im happy if they say no but if I dont ask... I wont get.

Currently on half price Sky Movies for three months and because I have full sports this upgrade only cost me an extra £2 a month until Jan.

Sky show no loyalty to long term customers, they may get some respect if they just rang you and offered a deal after so many years.
Last year I cancelled, after a month they rang and offered me 1 year half price, which I took but at 11 months I will ring and cancel (giving the 31 days notice) and see what they do, if I have to leave so be it but I’m not willing to pay full price when they offer deals to get new customers.

its not a proper deal. sky / vm etc do pricing on what they think the customer will accept to stay / join

Moved to misc as the thread was gaining no heat in deals - often these retention offers can be very specific to one individual but if a number of other members do report this specific offer as being available we can review again
