Okay, so I don't know about you, but I just get irritated every month when our satellite bill comes in the mail. I mean, we pay $69 a month to watch tv!! I know, we could watch it for free, but they really know how to get you between the sports channels, the cartoon channels, and the Lifetime movies! And on top of that, their rates went up AGAIN this month!!
So I got a little tired of it all and called to tell them I wanted to cancel my account. I am still in my 24 month contract (which I'm not sure how I ended up in) so they said they would transfer me to their "disconnect department". He asked why I wanted to cancel and I told him it was too expensive. He immediately offered me $10 off and I said that wasn't enough. He quickly offered me $10 more. I thought $20 wasn't half bad so I took it and ran! Who knows - I might have gotten more but that had my package down to $33 and that's their "new customer" deal right now.
Just thought there might be some more cheapos out there who might like a better deal. Just tell them you want to cancel, and they'll hand you one!! Anybody know how to get my other bills down now? ;)
