I followed Dude's link in his 1st post. Hit redeem now, loggin with your credentials and when they show the 0.00$ cost, there's another option to put in the 3... code. 2 Minutes later came the confirmation email and this morning i was live.

Yeah...doesn't work for me because it is not being offered in my area. When I click on Redeem, I then log in with my credentials into the My Services site and the option is not there...well the option is there to use a code, but it doesn't work.

Not working in Charlotte, NC. Tried online (every day) and online chat since deal came up. Haven't called in and may be last resort.

Calling didn't work for me. The customer service rep stated they didn't even know about the offer! Huh? In any case, TWC needs to step up and clarify this.

And, I can't get my free Showtime by trying any of the "solutions" offered by some here. Something smells.....

Two is one, one is none. If it's important, back it up... Somethimes 99.999% availability isn't even good enough.

Doesn't seem to available for those of us who already pay for Showtime.

That would be logical.

Why is it "logical" for Time Warner to charge existing customers for something they're offering everyone else for free?

For the same reason it is "logical" for Time Warner to charge existing customers more in general than new customers. Because the existing customers put up with it.

WARNING !

For the few who were able to get this deal:
Just got the bill reflecting this Promo and it was billed in full+partial.

You need to check your invoice and call billing to get it taken off in case they 'accidentally' add it.

The announcement is still on-line and in case they take it off their page after Mar 3ed, here is the screen shot for prove.

All good here: probably a standard oversight
