    Does anyone have any advice as too how long after you have fully cancelled you have the best chance to get the best 'win back' 🥺 offer when you call them or will you get the same offer no matter how long you leave it ?

    Recently had reason to contact Sky over the increase in my Sports sub price (actually a reduction in my in contract discounts). They solved the issue in a roundabout way ,so I've been keeping an eye on Future Bills!
    Now appears that Sky have "automatically" carried over some discounts for after the minimum term ends - haven't sent me anything on email or in the post - overall my discounts were worth ~ 48% ,the new post contract period figure is more like 34% discount. Anyone else noticed this ??

    I’ve noticed this also regarding the reduction in the in contract discount for the sports pack in my future bills I’ve had no communication about it either seems very sneaky and sly to me.

     I wouldn’t mind if they had made contact regarding this as I knew they’d be an increase during the contract.

    I had pretty much the full package and cancelled but it was a game of bluff of which I lost as I had to ring them on the 29th day of the 30 day notice period. Even then the package I accepted was more than the offer of the chat bot. I asked about this but it seems there were no notes or evidence from the chat bot offer so he couldn't match it.

    I've had the same offer prices, plus sports for £12 (inc HD), 4 weeks after disconnecting.  This is the cheapest I've seen recently, though sports HD used to be around £9 a few months back.  All other prices are pretty much the same as other offers I've seen.

    They are pushing Stream and also Broadband hard on calls I've had with them.
