I referred a friend and heard nothing for WEEKS. Suddenly I get in the mail Friday night a Sling box. This “Gift” is free for a week then I have to pay for a subscription.
So in other words, Sonic makes a deal with Sling where they get a cut of money if they sell Sling subscriptions.
This is their generous “gift” to honest people who took them up on their offer to give them a nice gift for referring friends.
I AM OUTRAGED.
I expected this kind of underhanded slimy trick from ATT and/or Comcast but not from Sonic.
I put these thought on my Nextdoor app and trust
me, other people are outraged too.
If I get a chance to get a better company than Sonic I will leave. This really shows they are not the new good guys in the block as they purport to be.
Here is the offer:
