Two months ago I switched my landline phone over to Comcast, where we already had our Internet and cable service. I just can’t let go of my landline, at least not yet. I got a great deal on the phone service ($19.99 a month for the entire year!) and was happy at the time.
Since then I’d seen Comcast ads offering $99 per month for all three services. We’re paying almost $150. Being the inherent procrastinator that I am I kept putting off the call. I’ve just not been in the mood to argue.
Well, today I called. I asked and they reduced the cable portion of my bill from $71 to $39, and added 5 HBO channels, FREE. That promotion is good for seven months, but the rep advised me to call back in 6 months to see what new promotion they’re running and switch it over. She also reduced my Internet charge by about $12 per month for a year.
My cable/internet/phone bill is going from $149 per month to $98 per month, and I all had to do was ask.
Seriously. No arguing. No trying to upsell. No nothing.
Now I’m kicking myself. I should have asked long ago…
Now who am I going to call next?
