My cable deal

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
So I planned on getting some great deals to help me with my budget this year. So for starters, today I called my internet/cable company, Comcast. I have been paying $59.95 for basic cable and highspeed internet. I told them I was cancelling my account unless they could give me a deal. After being on hold a couple minutes, the young lady came on and told me I could have the same package I have now and it would be $23.99 a month for 6 months!! She then told me that when I call back in 6 months - to tell the person I spoke to the same thing I said to her and they will get me a good deal also. I am never to afraid to ask for a deal!! Still looking for more ways to "cut costs" this year!!!

    You go Lynn! Mark your calendar so you will remember to call again in 6 months. That first bill can be a shock after the discount.

    Way to go Lynn, I would call back in 6 months. If it's going to save you money, go for it. I should do the samething.

    Wow! I'm sooooo proud of you. Do you think it would work with my satelite company? Maybe I'll give it a try.

    I think it should work for most companies, I am calling direct tv Monday. I asked the guy on the phone what day to call back and then I marked my calender. I am working on budgeting better I hope yall will be able to work out a deal too

    A deal you have gotten--you are starting the year off right. Tell Direct TV you are planning to switch companies -- they hate that and they will give you a deal also.. My son got us a cheaper rate over a year ago, with our cable service.. GOOD LUCK Lynn.
