It's only a $15 discount now: Unlimited Plus save on DIRECTV or DIRECTV NOW. Choice gets DTV Now.

You still get the HBO too.  Sign up here for the free HBO at http://att.com/unlimitedplus

The meaning of that statement is: You have the right to obtain DirectTV at a $25 dollar discount for the rest of your life as a benefit of being an unlimited plus customer.

 Yes, and had you taken advantage of that benefit, you would have it for life. This doesn't go against your definition ("Having the right or ability to obtain something").

 

 

What you are saying they meant is "You have the right to obtain DirectTV at a $25 dollar discount for the rest of your life but only if you obtain it within the next few months".  

No, common sense says that offers might not exist if you don't take them when offered.

To be clear: I was just stating common sense, not making policy for AT&T.

 

I just pulled the piece of paper out. Verbatim it says: "Eligible to save $25/mo for life on DIRECTV"

Now, in the small print it says service is subject to change.  

So verbatim it says it might change. Even without the fine print, offers change. 

 

However, I don't feel it is appropriate to say something is "for life" if it subject to, and likely to, change.  Perhaps, "for a long time" or "for a few months" should have been put in instead of "for life".  

You do understand you'd still have the $25 for life IF you'd signed up. They would have let you keep it.

 

Literally, they changed it less than six months after I signed up for unlimited plus.

They literally could have changed it the next day.

 

 It is yet another example, in my opinion, of AT&T being disingenuous in their advertising / communications.  All they would have had to have done is take out the words "for life" and I would be completely satisfied.  I was actually going to sign up for directTV but the fact that I feel lied to stops me from doing so.  I will go pay another company for a comparable service, even if I have to pay them more.  

It would have been $25 for life IF you'd signed up. It's $15 now (and I don't believe it's for life).

 

Now the "for life" offer listed is free HBO.Screen Shot 2018-02-17 at 11.34.12 AM.png

Currently the line print says "Offer, programming, pricing, terms & conditions subject to change and may be discontinued at any time without notice."

 

 

I would love to post a picture of the ad but I don't know how to.  If you could advise me I will do just that. 


Take a photo with your camera and use the web browsers on a computer (not your phone).

This page says it's $15 for life for DirecTV

Technically, I supposed it could just be for this new signup offer? (And not necessarily for people who already have DTV and are adding Unlimited Plus?)
