You can save money on your monthly bills for services like cable, internet, phone and insurance!

How can you obtain these savings?  Negotiate!

What should you do?

  • Be prepared
    • check online  for any current deals with your current provider and their competition
    • gather your agreement, bills and payment history.  On time payments are a plus!
    • Decide what you expect and are willing to pay – set a high expectation goal and one for which you are willing to settle – this allows for comfortable compromise
  • Get on the phone with customer service
    • Be patient while you go through all the options to talk with a live associate – usually I’m annoyed by the time someone actually talks to me!
    • If it’s taking forever, you might try pressing zero or # to get an associate on the line
    • Be assertive.
    • If the person you get says that they can’t help you, ask to be transferred to someone who can – in the appropriate department or their supervisor.
  • Enjoy your success!

I once called my internet provider and told them that the service had become too expensive for me and they knocked my service down to the introductory rate after I’d been a customer for several years.
