I had to pay $38 extra for seed as only 1000 sq ft of seed was included in the deal for $129. When I inspected the lawn after the service (I wasn't home at the time the aeration and seeding were performed), I could barely find any seed. I watered the lawn as instructed for seed germination; but, I have to say that the entire process made no difference to my lawn that season or the following season. I saw no new grass growth and no difference to my existing lawn. I question the quality of seed that was used. If you want lawn aeration done, go for it, but don't pay for any seeding. Just buy some quality seed and seed the lawn yourself after the lawn aeration is performed.
