Anyone have a promo code for CBS?

Postby scotty.ballgame » Fri Jan 11, 2008 6:36 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has a promo code for anything more than 10% off CBS Sportsline's Baseball Commissioner service for 2008. Since my league has been with them for 7 or 8 years, I can usually call in and they give me 10%. Just wondering if there's anything like 20 or 30% off out there. Thanks in advance. -Scott

How do you get %10 off. So you usually pay $117 per year instead of $130?

Unless I actually have a 10% code (sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, depending on if I have one from a magazine or someone else online) I just ask. I play up the fact that we've been with them for many years and in addition to the Early Bird $20 off they usually can give me the extra 10% off. So yes, it takes the actual price from $129.95 down to $116.95. It's not too bad when we have 10 guys split that cost, and CBS is the best. We've totally customized our site for everything we need.

I'll wait until next week to see if I find any other code, then I'll call in. I want to work on our site and update several things soon.

If you score any codes, I would sure like one or tell me where you got it. I have been in 2 cbs leagues every year for the last 6 years. I think my team owners deserve a deal :-) especially with all the money we have gave them.

I'm having trouble locating it, but if anyone has that Sportsline brochure that came with the stupid bobblehead trophy from last year (which we didn't even use in my league), there were promo codes listed in there. Not sure if they would be expired by now but there were several ones for several products. I think I brought the bobblehead into my school classroom to give away to one of my students and can't remember if the brochure was still in that box.

I have seen promo codes in the fantasy magazine in the past but didn't see any last year and there are not any mlb fantasy mags out yet that I have seen.

Quick update folks. I found the CBS Fantasy Sports pamphlet that came with last year's bobblehead. The only promo codes in it were for the Football Commissioner this past season (07BBTR) and CBSFB2007 for Free Shipping on stuff from CBSSportsStore.com (that supposedly expired 6.30.07).

I spoke to two different customer service reps at CBS Sportsline and asked for the 10% off the early bird price of $129.95. I told them they've given it to me each of the last several years and we've paid $116.95. They told me they're not doing that anymore because they have this other $50 referral program where you could make a lot more $$ back than just saving $13 or so (the 10%).

So, so far no dice. I need to pay for my league ASAP but I guess I could wait a bit more. It says the Early Bird deadline is 11:59pm on February 7th. The last rep I spoke to said they usually have a promo code in the magazine, but that doesn't come out until sometime beginning of February. If it hits newstands after Feb. 7th, then it's a moot point because the Early Bird fee will be gone anyway and who cares if you then get 10% off a $149.99 price. Does anyone know when exactly the CBS Sportsline Fantasy Baseball magazine comes out?

Anybody have any other luck? Also, if anyone is starting up a new CBS league, I'd be very happy in helping you customize and set it up according to how your league rules are. Then you could sign up using a link I send you and at least get this referral thing going. Let me know.
