Nfl Sunday Ticket Box

Get NFL Sunday Ticket for FREE


I just got NFL Sunday Ticket MAX ($330 sticker price) for free. I’m on a nice little run here. I’ve gotten NFL Sunday Ticket for free – 3 years in a row!

Here are a few ways you can get it free:

A) You could steal it. But, it’s probably best to not spend the 7th day resting while simultaneously shattering one of The Commandments.

B) You can get it free if you are a new customer to DirecTV_Refer_Friend-smDirecTV, and sign a two-year contract with the “Choice” package or higher. If you are going to be a new customer to DirecTV, you can also get $100 off if you are referred by someone who has it. The referrer also gets $100 in statement credits. Order online at or by calling 1-800-507-4045. Please give them my account number 15929124 when asked who referred you – so we can both get rich. Rich, I tell you. RICH!

C) If you are already a DirecTV subscriber and eschew thievery, here’s one way I got it free. I called DirecTV. I told the robot that I wanted “Customer Retention”. This got me a human.  If you aren’t going to utter the words “Customer Retention” – just hang up the phone. You are wasting your time.

In 2013, I politely asked MJ in Customer Retention if there was any way I could get NFL Sunday Ticket for free. MJ looked at my account, which is already maxed out with discounts, and said she could give me NFL Sunday Ticket for free if I agreed to keep DirecTV for a year. This did not extend my contract a year. I just can’t cancel DirecTV for 12 months or I’d have to pay a cancellation fee of $10/month. Your results may vary, but it’s worth a call. Done and done. I saved $224.95.

In 2014, I had a different experience.  On my first call, they only offered to drop the price $48.  No bueno.  FYI: 2014 price for NFL Sunday Ticket is now $239.94.  NFL Sunday Ticket MAX is $329.94.

I called back a few days later.  I simply asked Tiffany in Customer Retention, “Is there any way I can get NFL Sunday Ticket for free?”  She could not offer me anything off the regular package, but said she could get me NFL Sunday Ticket MAX for half-price or $164.97.  This is the package that allows one to play it on multiple devices, among other things.

I thanked her but said that was more than I wanted to spend.  She asked me if I had seen other offers from competitors.  I said I knew they existed, but had not pursued them.

She said that they valued my long-time loyalty, so she was able to drop another $100 off the price.  Now we are at $64.97.  That’s only $4/game.  I would have accepted that, but figured I had one more move.  I thanked her, but asked if there was any way I could work out some kind of discount for the less expensive regular package, so I would have less out of pocket.

Tiffany said because of my long time loyalty and perfect payment record, she could give me a one time courtesy credit of $64.97.  TOUCHDOWN!  What surprised me the most is that I didn’t have to try very hard.  Give it a shot!

NOTE: If you had NFL Sunday Ticket last year, you will automatically get billed for it. You have until the season starts to cancel that. I cancelled the auto-billing on my account before making the calls to Customer Retention.

    I tried for the third time today without success. I don’t know what I am doing wrong!!!!!!!!!! I keep mentioning that they offer it for free to existing customers, but the most I got it 15 dollars off my bill. I guess I will try again tomorrow. Aghhhh

  2. Chip

    Do you ask the representative if they are in “customer retention”?

    I just got off the phone with DTV……first asked for customer service about a Sunday ticket deal, the guy said there were no offers, so I then asked for customer retention. Very nice lady came on the line and I was telling her that I was no longer interested in the Sunday ticket, so she said they would take it off the bill. Without saying anything else, she then proceeded to tell me that since I have been a DTV customer for 15 years they have some loyalty discounts. The Sunday ticket is $240 and this what they gave me….

    $15 off for the next 15 months= $225
    $5 off for the next 24 months= $120
    $10 off for the next 12 months =$120

    That $465 in credit off my bill which nets at $225 after Sunday ticket billing.
    Oh, and then I am getting a $200 Visa gift Card just for agreeing to stay with DTV for 12 more months.

    A 40 minute phone call got me Sunday ticket free, $225 in extra credits and a $200 gift card! I usually all every year and get a heavy discount, but this was my most successful one yet! Just be polite, patient, and persistent and that will go a long way!

    Make sure you are speaking to “Customer Retention”, otherwise you are not talking to the department that is authorized to give you the best deals. Then ask them, “Is there any way that I can get NFL Sunday Ticket for free?” There is no guarantee that you will get it offered to you for free. Try some of the approaches mentioned in my post. Good luck!

    Nicely done, Roger!

    I tried again and GOT IT FOR FREE! Plus a free Genie upgrade :)

    Thanks for all your help.

    Nice work, Shannon!

    Congrats!! Way to stick with it! Now I’m working on my brother, he’s been with DirecTV even longer than me!

    Wow! I took your advice and called. Got Sunday ticket, hd, $100 visa gift card, an additional $10 a month credit, and 3 months free hbo starz all for free! Had to give them another 2 year agreement, but Kendra told me I could call back in a year for additional discounts.

  10. Chip

    Nice!! When I glance at my statement every month, I look to see if any discounts have come off. Some are for 3,6 or 12 months. If one falls off, I call Customer Retention and ask if there are any discounts available. There aren’t always, but it is worth a call every few months.

  11. Don

    Didn’t get it for free, but I used your technique and saved $120.

    Called DTV, as an existing 6 year customer, went with option ‘C’. Spoke w/ a very nice woman named Jennifer in Customer Retention. Simply asked “Since I’ve been a customer for over 5 years, is there anyway I can get NFL Sunday Ticket for free?” She takes literally about 10 seconds to “look” at my account and replies “Yes, we can do that!” I had to “verbally” agree to remain a DTV customer for another 12 months (of course!) and be advised that it will auto-bill next year if I don’t cancel (understood), but simple as that! Thanks Chip!!!

    I was able to get Sunday ticket free yesterday. Simply called and said I wojld like to receive NFL Sunday ticket for free and asked if there was anyway this could be accomplished. I was initially told by rhe csr it would be full price but was offered to be transferred to a contracts person. I agreed and a couple minutes later the contracts person said if I agreed to stay with them for 12 more months then no charge for the ticket.

    Man that was easy. DirecTV customer coming up on 2 years (end of Nov). Told them I was considering red zone on Comcast because of the $4.99 offer they had and being able to use online/with a tablet. Also told them about my genie box glitching on recordings. The customer retention rep I spoke with, Jamal in Alabama, offered me Sunday ticket max for free since I’ve never missed a payment and only catch was to do a 12 month extension. What’s great is I had two months left on my contract with a $20/month early termination fee (so $40). The 12 month extension only has a $10/month early termination fee and starts immediately, overwriting my last two months of my original contract. In addition they’re overnighting a new genie to me free of charge and with no additional contracts or terms. I decided to try for just a bit more and asked if there were any discounts available to my account as I’m trying to get my bill down a little. Took him 15 sec to look and came back with $25 off per month for a year. I know some people here got a prepaid visa card but I didn’t press for that. I thought what they were offering me was completely reasonable:

    NFL Sunday Ticket MAX – Free ($329.94 savings)
    New Genie box – Free
    $25 off per month for 12 months ($300 savings)

    So now I have NFL ST MAX and the XTRA package for around $67/month pre tax. Very happy with the result and wasn’t hard, just be polite.

    Just called customer retention. I asked if I could get sunday ticket for reduced or no cost. Pat said that since I was a loyal customer she could take care of me. She then says that she is giving me sunday ticket max free for 12 months but remember to cancel next year or it will be billed automatically. She also says she’s giving me an additional $5 credit for 12 months (and I already am maxed out with credits) I didn’t have to do anything other than say thank you and goodbye. I,m still amazed.

  17. Chip

    That is a great deal even if you canceled after 4 months of football.

  18. Chip

    That was a profitable phone call!

    I just got off of the phone with a super sweet girl named Lacey in the retention dept at DTV who hooked me up with $10 off my bill for 12 months, $5 off HBO and Showtime packages and FREE NFL Sunday Ticket MAX!!! It did take A 40 minute phone call but I’m very happy with the results….and I’m positive my husband will be too! :)

  20. Chip

    That’s great!

    Good work, you guys!
    I’ve had DirecTV Sunday Ticket for free since moving to Texas from Michigan in 2009. However, having moved to a different apartment complex, my patio is *just* off from facing due south to receive a satellite signal :(. I am eligible to buy it as a non-satellite subscriber for $199.99/$239.99, but having it free for the last 5 years just leaves a sour taste in my mouth at that price-point.

    I’ve shared my DTV account the last 3 years to neighbors for watching via tablet/PC/phone, etc, without issue. If you have MAX, multiple devices can connect, anywhere, simultaneously, without knocking anyone off. I’ve had 4 going at once myself (PC,IPad,GS4,TV)…

    I’d be willing to pay $60 to anyone who could let me borrow the login info, just to stream on my tablet. Absolutely no hindrance whatsoever – you’d never even know I was streaming on Sunday afternoons. The only ‘trust’ part is the login info, which you can change instantaneously for any reason.

    If someone wants a quick $60 (i can do paypal/whatever), reply and we can work out via email. This is only for current MAX subscribers – the regular package can kick people off if it detects multiple simultaneous usage. Thanks in advance!

    Jeremy, just a thought…you could find 3 other people you know from your apartment complex or others you know that are in a similar situation have just split the max package 4 ways which would come out to $60 a piece anyways. That way it is with people you know. The “trust” issue goes both ways as the person you pay could also just change the password at anytime and then you’d be out $60. On the other hand, you could change the password as well which would get messy quick. I’m not saying that you would, I’m sure you’d just use the Sunday ticket app and that’s it. I’m just suggesting maybe there is a safer alternative for you and others with the same outcome of $60 being spent. I hope you can figure something out!

    I just got free NFL Sunday ticket by going through customer retention as you had said. I also get free movie channels plus the extra NFL perks (Red Zone, NFL on the go, etc,). Ibju st have to cancel the premium channels in 3 months. Thanks for the tip!!

  24. Chip
