My Daily Blog - 6/11/19 - "Expired Introductory Rates"

Whatever you do, DO NOT stand for an "introductory rate" expiring, when your rate goes through the roof on stuff like cable TV and/or internet service!

Recently watched an episode of "Hack My Life" on TruTV whereby the describe how to FIGHT a whopping cost increase with an awesome hack method. You simply convince the company you cannot afford ANY price increase, and you would DISCONNECT service (and maybe switch to a competitor) rather than pay a price increase.

A Producer on the show spent over an hour on the phone with customer service, hemming & hawing to actually get a BETTER deal than the original "Introductory Rate"! :cool:

I've done a very similar thing recently, even before watching the show; my rate (w/o notice) went from a little over $100 for U-verse TV and high speed internet to $180!!! Only noticed it on my credit card statement. I hemmed & hawed, threatening to DISCONNECT service, and ending up paying the same as "introductory offer", but got HIGHER speed internet. :D
