Showtime and Starz Rebate

When I signed up for uverse 450 last Nov the sales agent said I could get a $25 dollar rebate from Starz and a $25 rebate from Showtime after I have had verse 450 for 3 months. He said to search Google for Showtime rebate and starz rebate for the forms. I did and sent in the forms and copies of my bills for 3 months. I received a check for $25 from Starz and a $25 prepaid credit card from Showtime last week. I was happy to take the $50. This is just a suggestion for others new subscribers who may not be aware of these rebates.

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

THANK YOU for posting this!  We went around and around with customer service today because of SEVERAL lies our salesperson told us when we signed up.  We were told it would be a $50 gift card just for having the premium channels.  At least now we'll get our money.  REALLY appreciate this post.

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

Hi there. I signed up for uverse 300 recently and I was looking into these rebates. On the rebate terms, it says the bills have to show that you have showtime/starz subscriptions. My att bill doesn't explicitly show these channels, but it shows u300. Is that enough for the rebate?

 

Thanks.

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

Yes it is. I just received my rebates, one yesterday and one several weeks ago.

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

When we signed up for UVerse, we were offered a $250 Visa GC. We received the AT&T $200 GC yesterday, Thank you. My question is, I was told to call Starz and Showtime for the other two $25 GC's. Right now, their customer service lines are closed for rebates but have read online that you have to have the channels for 3 months and have to send in 3 months of AT&T UVerse bills. It does not show that we receive those channels. I believe we have the U300. I also read on Starz and Sho-time websites that we have to order the channels.

If that is the case, we were not informed of that. If so, do we send in the first 3 months bills of paid service channels with Starz and Showtime? Or do we send the very first 3 months from beginning of service? I am just confused about what I read ... or do I get the rebates by sending my first 3 months bills and NOT ordering these 2 channels and receive both $25 Visa GC

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

Where do I find the Showtime/Starz rebate forms? I have looked online but the few links don't seem to work?

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

I must say I am disappointed in the way this rebate was presented to me. Salesman said all I had to do was go online...verify my account and a $50 rebate would be on the way to me.Absolutely no mention of waiting 3 months!

 

What I should have been told was I had to have the service for 3 months and then print out forms for showtime and stars and also send in 3 months worth of bills to receive 2 different $25 rebates!

 

I don't know about everyone else...but pretty much hits the threshhold of too much hassle for what turns out to be a measly misrepresented offer!

It actually sounds like the $50 rebate card you were informed of was for signing up for new tv service. For this you would need to go to att.com/rewardsandrebates to redeem that. As long as you have had service for at least 30 days, you will be able to get this. The Starz/Showtime rebate is a completely different offer altogether.

Re: Showtime and Starz Rebate

The showtime link works but the starz link does not.

 

I agree with the previous post that says a rebate was offered to me by AT&T uverse from starz and showtime and said I could go on line immediately and get my money back.  There was no disclosure about waiting three months, sending in bills and filling out forms. Then waiting several months for the rebate.

 

What was more frustrating...I was also told I had to pay a January bill for $154.95 on my old account I was closing from another state - not due until February -  but she could confirm they had received my returned equipment already and I had a credit on that account of $150.00. AT&T would not let me set up the new account in the new location until I paid $154.95 even though I only owed $4.95. They said they would send me a check at the end of the billing cycle. I think this has to be against the law to make a customer pay an amount they do not owe.
