I have had this deal for a couple of seasons - Once I paid up
front, but last year I was charged monthly.
Contacted help desk yesterday who:
a) offered me a three month deal (but the contact understood when I declined on the basis that I did not wanted to be stuck in a three month deal, and thereby locked out of new deals, during the offer period of a season deal.
b) that, it is still too early and once the deal is available I will probably get an email, though I should keep checking the offers page.
Sounds exactly the same as last year and the timing is good as I don’t want the deal to start until the season kicks off.
There hasn't been a season offer since pre COVID.
Even with the last season there wans't a season offer. At best its the 3 month discounts that will vary between £25 and £25.
Both of which for me are far too steep to make me consider taking out sports.
What I was getting at with the "season" offers is that they used to be bulk payments where you paid 12 months of sport for £xx.
Whereas as all that NOW offer are discounted monthly prices where you are charged monthly.
And that brings me back to my previous point of pre COVID. As pre COVID during black friday you were able to bulk pay for sports.
Since COVID it is just monthly payments for 3/6/9 months. Purely to save them paying out large chunks of money in refunds.
I spoke with someone on the live chat a couple of days ago, I asked about any promotion for the season and he had no idea lol I tried again with someone different and they just said check my emails or account which will show any promotions.. he didn’t really confirm or deny any promotions, just gave generic answers
the fact the season kicks off in 3 days and no one has heard anything makes me think there may be no promotion this season
I would not worry just yet. In the eyes of Sky, the season does not begin in 3 days. It begins when the first premier league match is played which, I think, is Brentford Arsenal on Friday 13th.
OK the season started late last year, but I did not get my offer until 2nd September.
about 45 mins ago.
Offer is £20 per month for 10 months, payable monthly. 10 months makes sense as season starts earlier.
Signed up immediately and interestingly, it looks like it is a GENERAL public offer of which I just got a personalised heads up as a former customer. I say that because when I went to pay, the system asked me if I was a new client (and offered to sign me up) or an existing client and required me to sign in.
So,I am signed up and all I now have to do is to remember to cancel my auto renewal after the May 2022 payment is taken in order to avoid rolling on at the full price.
Text of email was:
