Say you get promotional offer for cable TV for 25/month for first six months. After this promotional offer it is likely that this rate will rise to 50/month. There are some ways to keep getting cheaper rate. Of course nothing is free and you will have to work a bit to get cheaper rate. There are some ways to do this:
Get connection through local agent
The simplest way to get great deals is via local agent. Instead of calling 1-800 number, find a local agent in your area and ask for the deal. Local agent is likely to give you better deal than the one that you could get by directly calling service provider.
Get new connection from different provider
After 6 months of promotional period, call your service provider and tell that you will terminate service if they won’t give you further discount. It is likely that they will give you discount, if not be prepared to terminate connection and call another service provider and get their introductory rate. Keep doing this every 6 month and you will always able to get promotional rate. Installations charges can be lowered or dismissed upon asking, but you need to ask for that.
Ask your spouse to get new connection
After 6 months of promotional period, call your service provider and tell that you will terminate service if they won’t give you further discount. It is likely that they will give you discount, if not be prepared to terminate the connection and ask your spouse to get a new connection on his/her name. Keep doing this every 6 month and you will always able to get promotional rate.
Upgrading it to higher plan with promotion
Let’s say a service provider provides three packages: 30/month, 50/month and 75/month. You feel like 30/month plan doesn’t have enough channels and you needed to get 50/month plan. It is likely that you will get promotional offer of 25/month. After six months, you can call and ask for upgrade, from 50/month plan to 75/month plan. You make sure to ask for promotion. That promotion will be 37.5/month for 6 months. So after 6 months, instead of paying 50/month, you will pay 37.5/month.
