    trying to get my mother in law a good deal with sky

    Im going to the inlaws in a bit and they want me to get a good deal for sky for them, they've been with sky for about 8/9 years and have a basic sky box (not sky+) they have all packages except sports
    has anyone got any tips on what I can say when I call sky please? the pressure is on me lol

    Just tell them to call and cancel and withing a week or two they will be offered hd box with full package at half price for a year. Well thats what happened with me and i was only with them for a year

    Even if you bluff it out & end up cancelling they still call back offering deals. I left sky a month ago & now they're offering me free HD box & half price subs for a year to come back to them. If they're not tied in anymore you should at least get a free HD or sky+ box & half price for six months.

    just say your gonna leave as somewhere else is giving better deals. mite be worth checking first so youve got something to tell them, im with virgin and after my year contract told them i goin to sky as they had a better deal then virgin at the time and they gave me a really good deal. upgraded everyhing at no extra cost.

    sky for mother in law = less time spent at your house. What a great idea, why didnt i think of that

    Have a look at this thread

    Whether or not it's still happening I don't know, but it would be worth your while phoning up and asking.

    Btw, if you're not the account holder it's unlikley you'll be able to add anything to the account....

    what is it your out-laws actually want?

    that will define whether its a good deal or not.

    I phoned last week with the old answer machine message line. Got a free HD box, free install and free 12 month subscription to the HD pack. The also cut my multiroom sub from £10 to £5 and are putting in another feed so I can move my sky + box upstair.

    thanks everyone sorry couldn't reply yesterday I was in a rush, I haven't called sky yet, I'll do it today I reckon. thanks for advice, I'm going to call up and say I want to cancel (its ok with her) and hope they offer me a good deal if not fingers crossed they call her back and offer her something! if they don't how does she go about getting sky back again??

    she really wants a sky+ box and father in-law wants hd but mother in-law doesn't want to be paying for hd each month lol :roll:

    thanks again for taking the time to reply everyone. rep'd everyone xx

    I tried ringing about a month ago for her and asked for sky+ box and they couldn't offer me anything, tried charging her for installation and the box! she's been a good customer for so long I'd have thought they'd have offered her something. hopefully I'll get someone more helpfull this time
