Direct TV (Directv) Commercial & Special Offer – new subscribers get $10 off per month with my info


Hi there folks, you may recall that my husband and I switched to Direct Tv last Fall or so. We signed up and we were too late with the $10 off offer, as we mentioned it to the installer, wrong way to do it… you need to give them the information when you set up the appointment for your instillation of Directv.

My Direct TV on my Rooftop. Boy has Satellite and Dish Changed over the years no reception problems with snow or rain!

We initially had problems as the Genie with 5 program recording capabilities was brand new at the time and we had to wait for the local Directv to have the DVR shipped to us, after a few tries they managed to get the cable internet hooked up properly. Now we’ve had great success as we have access to the online features as well as the Dish/Satellite features.

We have been so happy with our change away from Comcast for our TV watching, and the huge DVR storage as well as the ability to record up to 5 channels at once. Now I can get my programs that I love as well as the remote hog called The Husband, getting all of his Monster Movies (which I’ve seen some of these so many times that I don’t pay attention to them)… we are Science Fiction/Fantasy lovers however as well as Action Movies/shows. I personally love some girly shows, What Not to Wear, Bun Heads, Hot In Cleveland (with my “twin”, well former twin before I went red, Valerie Bertinelli) and Mad Men to name a few.

We enjoy recording our show ahead of time for watching and skipping the commercials, and with the DVR, it really helps us get a chance to communicate at home so if I have something to talk to my husband about he just pauses the show and actually gets to listen to me and restart the show after our discussion. I’ve even recommended to friends with communication problems and a husband that loves his shows to please get at least a DVR to pause his program and listen… he actually was very receptive to the idea and said he had been thinking of getting one but procrastinating… I wonder if they actually got one now to help this wonderful couple communicate more.

Speaking of skipping commercials, the other day we actually watched some live tv, so we saw this commercial that really made me laugh, so I had to hunt it down for you. What made me laugh so hard is we live out where we have Hawks and one was eyeballing and gliding around where my dog was one day… sick and scared but I got close to the dog and the Hawk seemed to decide it wasn’t worth it. Besides my MinPin isn’t that small. lol

There is a deal (as seen in my side bar) of $10 off for new Subscribers to Direct TV, just use our code/account# and the name (it’s under my husband’s name) when you call to change to Direct TV and we (you and I) will get $10 off our bill per month. Now this offer does have an expiration, it is May of this year… so you can use this thru the end of April. And you can share the same up to $100 off per month for 10 months with your friends too!

Here is what Directv has to say about this offer:

How the DIRECTV Referral Offer works

When a friend who is a current DIRECTV customer refers you to DIRECTV, you can get an EXTRA $10 bill credit every month for 10 months on top of the great savings you get with our current new customer offer. Your friend also gets $100 in bill credits for every friend he or she refers.

Requires ENTERTAINMENT Package or higher

So I guess you need the Entertainment Package or higher to get this offer. This wasn’t seen by me at first since it was in very fine print on their page.

Anyway here is the Info for anyone switching to Satellite/Dish thru Direct TV for their TV.

  • Name of Friend: (just in case they ask): Rick Lockwood
  • And Our Account #: 41137732 (hey since you have that account number want to pay some towards our bill, that’s okay too… just kidding, well actually….) *wink*

There you go, some video’s and info on Direct TV, our Account# for you to save $10…if you want to read more you can check out my husband’s post on his blog Called: Direct TV – Share The Love Promo


I Mariah, have purchased (with my husband) Direct TV for our own home, we are not affiliates of them, nor are we paid by them for this, we are although offering a savings for others and ourselves off the bills with direct tv. The videos in this post were located at random on YouTube. And the picture enclosed is the picture of the Direct TV Dish on my roof top, so it was provided by me.

Trying to combine my old Blogs with new… stay tuned

I will be attempting something here… combining my old blogs with the new. My health is making it hard to think and worse yet this chronic pain is exaggerating my ADD!

As always I digress… sorry.

Why do I have two blogger accounts?
I lost my password etc when the Blogger (from way back when) moved on over to google based and it took a while to regain my account. So I started a new one as Riah instead of my nick “babydol” and I have been attempting to combine the two accounts. Thus far all I’ve done is began setting up the blogs so I can access and post from either accounts.

I need to do a lot of research to do this, if there is a way, other then my sharing my accounts so I can sign in as either nick and post… maybe with my new doctor I will get more help with my health and thus I shall be able to concentrate for the first time in AGES!

I have not forgotten that I am not alone in chronic pain and chronic illness out there, I hope to get this blog going to share with others and hopefully others will join in.

Luv & hugs
