So much work to get this ....... not all reps know about this

I signed up for a future install date and called back day before to see if they could offer any credits or discounts. Agent tried but nothing more than $10 off. I asked to cancel the install, and they didn't even pass me on to a cancellation team, just cancelled right then and there. Too bad as I was going to see if I could have gotten a better deal with the cancellation department. Hopefully they have something for back to school in a couple months.

For those of you that managed to get this deal, did you ask for it outright or did you prod them into offering it to you?

Has Virgin always required a hard pull/credit check to sign up for internet?
Unless your PM is of personal nature and unrelated to the thread, don't PM me. You can post in the corresponding threads instead.

Not sure, guess it depends on your relationship with them. If you're completely new to them (and maybe Bell), ya, I'd expect that.

I'm both a Bell customer (for TV), and used to be a Virgin customer (for mobility), so when I signed up there was no hard check.

Don't really see the big deal though, whatever effect on your rating will evaporate after a few months.

Not worth it to me if I currently have a $35/month plan with TenTenTel (though Bell's network is better)

Is the 'not worth it' simply related to the hit to your credit?

If so, I'd encourage you to investigate what 'cost' there is to you when your score drops down for a short while. Unless you are planning to buy a house within the next 3-6 months the 'cost' to you is zero.

Just trying to dispel the wide spread myths on how credits scores work, and how 'bad' a hard check is.

I'm very aware of how credit scores work, thank you.

I've had Virgin for a year and my $30 off/$60 promo ends next week.

I called in and just asked if they could extend the promo. The rep put me on hold to check and said that promo wasn't available anymore.

She offered a permanent promo of $10/month or $15/month for 1 year.

$45 for 50mbit/10mbit unlimited is reasonable. The modem is free rental, no dry loop fee, no setup/install fee. Their network is more stable than other resellers.

I Then asked about the new customer promo with 50% off he then advised me there is nothing like that available at this time.

DONT DO IT!!!

Stay away from Virgin internet and save yourself the hassle!!!

I have spent over 5 hours on the phone with them over the last 3 days since having service installed.

They couldn’t offer me free service for a year to keep me at this point.

Not sure what's going on in your situation, but I've had Virgin internet for 2 years now and have absolutely zero complaints.
