Free DirecTV Gift

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Yesterday, I finally got my “free” gift for signing up for DirecTV. It was supposed to come 6-8 weeks after they received the form that I sent in. UPS first tried to deliver it last Friday, so I’m going to give DirecTV credit for that and say that it only took 9 weeks.

The item that I got was a DVD player. It was supposed to be a portable DVD player. I figured a portable DVD player would be cool if I ever go on a road trip again. I would have actually wanted to keep it. Why would I want just a plain ole DVD player? Off the top of my head I can think of 7 devices at home that will play DVDs, so this new DVD player is pretty much pointless. It’s a brand that I had never heard of before (Sungale). Judging from the picture on the box, it doesn’t have any kind of numerical display on the front to tell you the time elapsed, chapter number, etc. I haven’t opened the box yet, so maybe I could sell it on eBay for about $20.
