Comcast Offers Abound for New Subscribers

Comcast Offers Abound For New Subscribers

If you are a new customer or an existing one, it’s always a good idea to keep in the loop about Comcast offers. With just a simple click of a mouse or a call to their support center, you could potentially be saving a significant amount of money in no time on the variety of services that Comcast offers.

Television and High Definition

XFINITY TV is one of the great services available. Comcast offers both regular television and high definition television, each with their own bonuses.

For example, Comcast is currently offering regular television for as low as $49.99 for 12 months and that comes with all of your basic cable channels, such as SyFy or Spike. You can add on premium channels (such as Showtime or HBO) for as low as $10.00 a month for 12 months. This service also includes On Demand, which allows you to watch shows and movies whenever you want from the comfort of your home. Or, if you prefer, you can get the Spanish language package, which costs the same and offers a wide variety of Spanish channels.

With their high definition deal, Comcast offers much of the same that the regular television package includes, though it is a little higher cost because of the quality increase. Currently, they are offering $54.99 for 12 months. That gives you access to both normal channels and their HD counterparts, along with On Demand. I am particularly a fan of this package, as Comcast tends to offer channels in HD that other providers to not, such as Investigative Discovery.

Phone Service

XFINITY Voice also has specials running right now. For new customers, they are offering two different packages. The first is around $30 for 6 months and includes unlimited local and national phone calls, along with the ability to check your voicemail from any device at any time. The second plan rings in at about $35 a month for 6 months and includes unlimited local calls, long distance calls at 5 cents a minute and voicemail retrieval for $3.95 a month. With either package, you get free activation, unlimited text messaging, call waiting, caller ID and three way calling.

For existing customers, they also have a deal running, but you have to sign into your account to check and see what they can offer you as it varies from account to account.


When it comes to Internet, Comcast offers two types: Performance and Blast.

Performance is their slower speed, though it still ranks three times the speed of most DSL services and claims a hundred faster than dial-up. It also offers download speeds up to 25 mbps and upload speeds of 5 mbps. Their current special on this plan is for about $40 per month for 12 months.

Their second speed, Blast, downloads up to 50 mbps and uploads at speeds of 10 mbps. This is double the speed of their first package and one that, personally, have been quite satisfied with. Their current special running for this service is for about $50 for 12 months.

Regardless of which Internet package you might want, both come with a no-minimum term contract, a feature that is called Constant Guard — which includes programs such as Norton Anti-Virus—and a free Motorola modem.

Home Security

With home security, Comcast offers several packages.

For about $40 a month, XFINITY Home Secure 300 offers a lot. Your home will be monitored and secured 24 hours a day. You will be able to view your home from any device when you are away and you will also be able to arm and disarm alarms even when you’re not home.

The other plan is the XFINITY Home Secure 350 and it runs close to $50 a month. This is basically the same package as above, but with higher technology involved and it also offers you more free equipment when you sign up.

The last plan is the most basic one. It still offers the same basics of the other programs — monitoring, remote access — but it only costs about $20 a month. This is because, unlike the other programs, they won’t cover the cost of any of your equipment necessary for the home security program — you have to purchase it all out of pocket.

Keep in mind, though, that these plans require a 3 year contract that is subject to an early termination fee. They also both require installation fees, the simpler program costing around $99 and the more advanced one running a hefty $399. There is, however, a 30-day, money-back guarantee on both programs if you do not like them.

Comcast Offers: Bundles

The bundles that Comcast Offers are vast. You can go with their Double Play, which combines any of the two previously mentioned services, or you can go for Triple Play, which will combine three.

Of course, they’ll throw in perks other than just saving money. For instance, if you bundle your television with another program right now, they’ll give you HBO and Streampix for no cost for a total of 24 months. There are several programs that you can choose and the prices for Double Play range from $39.99 to $89.99, all lasting for 12 months.

Now how about that Triple Play? Well, they’re willing to throw in a DVR for only $5 or $10 a month for the first 12 months for some of their bundles or even just give it free outright. Some of the higher priced plans will even give you a $150 or $200 Visa gift card if you sign up for it. Prices for these can be a little more expensive, since you’re getting more services, and range from $99 per month to $159.99, both lasting for 12 months.

Overall, Comcast offers a lot of good deals and they can apply for both new and existing customers. It’s important to always keep your eyes open and to give Comcast a call — especially if you’re already a customer — to see if there’s something that they can offer that would work perfectly for you.
