Just saved $42/mo

August 26th, 2008 at 09:12 pm

I finally called my cable/internet company and asked what they could do to keep me as their customer. The customer service rep punched a bunch of keys on her keyboard and was able to save me $42/month for the next year. Thats 1/3 of what I was paying before. Not bad for 10 minutes on the phone. The rates are only good for one year so next August I will have to switch providers or call back and get another special.

I can check off that goal as completed. Woo hoo!

    I've been meaning to do this myself, but just haven't sat myself down to DO IT. Yay for you!

    That's great. Good for you!

    Stuff like this is one of those no-brainer ways to save. The worst that could happen is they said, "Sorry, we can't do any better" and you would have been no worse off. Glad it turned out well.

    Now what will you do with that extra $42/month to make sure you don't spend it?

    It's funny how if you just ask for certain things, especially from businesses that want to keep your business, they will grant your request, within reason of course.

    I was thinking about what to do with the $42 and it will either go towards our extra car payment (principal balance) or to our emergency fund savings.

    Good job! I may have to try that.
