I found a new Chase Offer out this morning on an Ink business card good for $100 back when you add DirecTV service using your card. The terms seem to suggest that it only applies to new service, though I’m not sure whether new service is billed in such a way that differs from the normal bill, so I’m not positive that this wouldn’t work for a regular service payment.
- A new Chase Offer is out for $100 back when you add DIRECTV service using your eligible card
- Expires 11/22/20
- Must pay first monthly service bill by 12/22/20
- Must sign up directly through AT&T
- Terms indicate that DIRECTV offers require 24-month TV agreement, $19.95 activation fee, etc.
- Terms indicated that this is for new approved residential customers only with an equipment lease required
Again, the terms indicate that this is only valid when setting up new DIRECTV service. That may be enforced, though it is at least possible that the offer would be triggered with another service bill. If any readers have experience with Chase Offers for DIRECTV with similar language, let us know what you’ve found in the comments.
If you do plan to set up service, I assume this would stack with the offer for a $200 prepaid card that I see on DIRECTV’s website.
What I’m not entirely sure about is whether it would stack with portal cash back. While a couple of portals still list DIRECTV, most have it replaced with AT&T TV. When going through BeFrugal’s page for AT&T TV & Internet, it shows that if you just sign up for DIRECTV, you’ll get $65 cash back from BeFrugal.
However, I’m not sure it’ll work. When I go directly to the DIRECTV website and click the offer shown in the screen shot above, the next page gives me a choice between DIRECTV and AT&T TV:
However, when I clicked through BeFrugal, I did not see an option to choose “DIRECTV”.
That said, both websites actually check out through att.com, so I’m not sure it makes a difference.
Also worth noting is that I used BeFrugal to open the AT&T TV deal in a separate browser and had clicked through to check out and then came back to this browser to write this post. I brought the AT&T TV Browser I’d opened through BeFrugal back up for a second to check something and I’d received a pop-up presumably encouraging me to check out:
When I clicked accept offer and return to cart, it added the $50 card. My guess is that clicking to accept that offer would void portal cash back — but I’m not sure and it may be worth the gamble to some looking to sign up.
I then repeated the experiment through the DIRECTV website and sure enough, after navigating away to this tab to write the above paragraph, I got the same offer:
Moral of the story: If you’re going to sign up for DIRECTV, at the very least you should be able to go to the DIRECTV website and click the offer for the $200 rewards card, go through to check out and walk away or open a new browser for a few minutes and get another $50 on top of this $100 offer from Chase. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could try going through your favorite portal and sign up for AT&T TV, but I’m not sure that will actually work given that they appear to have separate branding for DIRECTV and AT&T TV even though both are offered by AT&T and are presumably the same thing.
At any rate, this is a nice offer for those who can take advantage.
