Internet Bill - Reduced!

January 29th, 2014 at 03:41 pm

When I got home today, my internet bill was in my inbox. Yikes! It had doubled since last month! I figured the promo deal I had was over.

So I immediately called to beg for another promo deal. All I said was "I noticed the promotion is now over." There weren't even any formalities or "we'd really like to keep you as a customer" - they just transferred me immediately to the retention department who without any discussion (or begging) offered me a rate that is even less than what we've been paying for the past year. I was prepared to beg; seriously.

We now pay $19.95 plus taxes for internet only. (We were paying about $25).

It's like the other, "non-promo" rate is just for people who are too busy or don't bother to call in. All you have to do is call up and you get the better (way better) rate.

Savings is about $60/year.

    That is a great rate for internet only. Great job taking the time to call and save! We live in an area that is still expanding fiber optics, so I think we are paying higher rates to help them fund that! It is super fast though.

    That was like when I called our cable company last. We have home phone, internet and TV. No begging or threats to leave and the rate was even lower than it had been. Big Grin

    I'm going to have to do that tomorrow - got my notice today, and it had also nearly doubled.
