Deals On Sky TV Service - (Mostly Cancellation deals)

I saw a friend of mine get a letter today advertising half price Sky + for 12 months with free install. Ring 0818 762 867 and quote 'Irelands No.1 offer'. Fatcheese are giving up to €135 cash back if you book online but I imagine if you then ring quoting the half price offer you might get that too and perhaps more if you play hardball.

Btw. Sky broadband.+ phone is coming this way in the next few months. There might be even better deals to be had then.

Edit: I have added a pic of the main part of what he got as an attachment.

Any links or anything on this? maybe explain it a bit more. What exactly do we need to quote when ringing?

I'm also interested in getting this, any chance you could ask your mate for the code?

Sounds like the op's friend had cancelled Sky sometime in the past few months.They send these offers to previous customers to tempt them to come back.

It's hard to get this offer by ringing & bluffing as they have the customer records on file & will suss you fairly quickly.

Yeah i heard that before alright but you could probably bluff it handy enough. The worst they can do is say no.

Just ring and say " Hi i got this offer saying its half price for 12 months and id like to take it"

They say either "ok no problems" or "Sorry thats only for previous customers"

They get commission so will only be happy but if you say you got it off a mate they will probably refuse as theyre not allowed. Dont lie but dont tell the truth is what i mean. "i got the offer" could be interpreted in different ways.

I got a letter today about this. Rang up and all they asked for was what was quoted on the letter - Which is 'Ireland's No.1 Offer'. So try that and see if it works.

Just thinking! Do you need a sky dish already installed?

No. Installations include the dish & standard installation is free.

Would be interested to see if this works.
Sky have lost a lot of customers to UPC offers in the past year.
I'd say they are trying to get them back and as you say the Broadband/Phone offer on top should make it interesting times ahead.
