Why I turned down Comcast cable, phone AND internet for $50 a month, but how you can get this deal!

We have been subscribers to Comcast for cable since we moved in, internet shortly thereafter.  We added phone service this past year.  At that  time we got what I thought was a great deal – $99 a month for six months.  That was less than I was paying for just cable and internet!  There was much rejoicing!

A few months ago that promotional rate ended, and I was in that icky place where we weren’t eligible for a promotional rate.  I had marked my calendar for the date when we could get a better rate again, and unhappily paid a bill that was $70  more per month.

When we decided to move I hoped we’d be able to move up our eligibility, given it was a new address.  I didn’t  really want to start a new account because our main email address is @Comcast, and it  would be a huge pain to change that.

I was in for a shock when I called Comcast.  They don’t serve the  city we’re moving to – the one about 10 miles west of where we are now.  Our new city is one of only two cities in our county that is not served by Comcast.  So, no new Comcast promo rate, no getting to keep our email addresses, no getting to keep our telephone number…


So it was with some trepidation that I contacted the cable company that serves the two lone wolf cities.  I was happily surprised to find out that we’ll have a few more channels, and we get the same $99 rate we used to have with Comcast.  And, we get that rate indefinitely.  So, I’ll be spending less again, for the foreseeable future.   Yay!!!

But what about that $50 rate in the title of this post?


I called Comcast the other day to cancel service, and though they attempted to talk me out of it they backed down when I explained that I would no longer be in a Comcast service area.  We scheduled the cancellation, made arrangements for the equipment  to be returned and that was that.  Or so I thought.

Yesterday there was a message on my machine from someone wanting to make me a special offer if I decided to keep Comcast.  Though keeping Comcast wasn’t  a possibility I didn’t ignore the call because I wanted to see what they would offer to entice me.  So I could share it with you.

You smart readers already know what the offer is.  $50 a month for cable, internet AND phone!!  For a year!!  I’m sure you also know how irked I am that I couldn’t get that rate to begin with.

But perhaps you can.  Perhaps you’d like to call and schedule a cancellation a few weeks away.  Perhaps you’ll get a call offering this super-dee-duper-doo-please-don’t-leave-us-or-the-stockholders-will-crap-a-brick rate, too.

Let me know if you get this great deal.  You can e-mail me at one of my all-new web based email addresses (I’m not going through changing main email addresses again.  Egad!).

And I shall save vicariously through you.

Restaurant Deals Galore!

Restaurants must really be hurting,  at least if the number of offers I’m seeing are any indication.  Here are just a few of the offers I’ve seen lately:


15% off purchase at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Homegoods and more today only!

TJ Maxx is offering 15% off your entire purchase today (January 22nd) only as part of their Customer Appreciation Day.  If they are to be believed this is the first time they’ve ever done this.

I bought a pair of Levi’s for Son on clearance for $7 and got an additional 15% off.  That’s a great deal!

I hope you find something good, too.

Edited to add:  I just found out that  T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, and A.J. Wright are also offering 15% off today only.  Apparently it’s being billed as an apology to the millions of consumers who had their credit card info stolen.

Mayhaps I should nothave paid with a credit card!

Last Minute Deal – 40% off at Old Navy

Going to Old Navy today?  Print this coupon for 40% off one item.  Good today only, and you can only use it in-store.

How NOT to Coupon

If you’re trying to use coupons to take extra advantage of the great sales advertised each week, best not to wait until the last day of the sale to try to score your deals.

Otherwise you’ll be like me and walk out of the store with not one thing on your list.  You won’t be empty-handed, though, as you’ll be clutching your coupons in one hand and a stack of rainchecks in the other.
