The discount service OfferWire.com found me a good rate for Comcast Digital Starter TV service with the HD option, and when I called the phone number from OfferWire.com to place my Comcast order a recording told me Comcast was an OfferWire affiliate. But Comcast did *not* honor the OfferWire rates.
Over my 2 year Comcast agreement I'll be paying $108 more than OfferWire.com offered me.
I spoke to OfferWire.com customer service and was told that in the end Comcast has full control over whether or not they will honor OfferWire.com rates. So I'm getting a little better rate than the regular Comcast promotions, but it feels like a bait-and-switch.
Monetary Loss: $108.
