Recently my cable bill had gone up about $60/month. I regularly check my bills to see if there are ways of reducing expenses or if there are new promotional rates. I had decided since I had success in the past, as have others, asking for a lower rate on other bills that I would give it a shot.
I called up Comcast during my lunchbreak and said I was concerned with how much my bill had gone up recently and I was considering canceling. The service representative said she would see what promotional rates they had going on, and one fit the same package and equipment I already had so she signed me up for that promotion which was $50 off per month. It’s only good for a year, but that years worth of savings will save me $600. When the promotion is up, I will call back and see if there are others (or shop around for cheaper service, either way I’ll be saving money).

As I mentioned in an older article about Reviewing Reoccurring Plans Quarterly, companies aren’t usually going to offer you a better rate if their plans change. It’s up to the consumer to stay on top of their regular expenses to see if a better rate is available because more than likely you will find one bill that could be slightly cheaper.
Amount of money saved: $600/year
