There used to be a deal that you could take advantage of if you were also an AT&T customer.
The two companies worked together to give you $15 off your monthly television bill and 25% off your cell phone bill to thank you for your service.
However, we confirmed with customer service that this promotion ended in July of 2019.
Now, to save money on your Directv bill, you will need to take advantage of their cost-reducing options that are offered to all kinds of customers.
