Here s The Secret To Getting A Lower Cable Bill
The most obvious tactic to employ is threatening to cancel your service, even if you don't intend to go through with it because Comcast is your only option for Internet service. If you don't pay your bills on time, don't be surprised if Comcast cannot find any promotions for you." Comcast always finds promotions for me because I always pay on time, every time. I have not paid the same ‘locked in' rate for Comcast in over 14 months. It should pay for itself in five months, then everything is free, even if we decide to upgrade in a year we're doing well.
Wireless wars: Comcast doesn't exactly have the best reputation when it comes to serving its customers' needs, but any competition is good. I called only offered to give me even a lower package, where I would loose my Lifetime Movie channel. 4. If your account isn't a good one, like if you don't make your payments on time, you don't get anything but the basic package, and you have nothing past HD service on your account, the options for free or reduced price stuff will be lesser.
After spending 30 hours getting credit that had to be gotten 3 times and was in the process reduced from $200 to $70 dollars for having technical problems that were their fault with my service, they began telling me that this bundle was good for 12 months instead of the 6 that they were parroting in the first go they are continuing to refuse to correct the billing.
It took three months, complaints to the state corporation commission (which, BTW, does not regulate Internet services-these services are completely unregulated, which is why these uncaring and faceless corporations can shaft you every which way from Sunday), appeals to Qworst's CEO, and threats of a lawsuit to get quit of the mess the guy created.
Comcast published an FAQ on using Roku devices in place of its cable boxes this week, in which the cable provider said it won't levy an equipment charge if you're using a Roku device with its Xfinity TV app during the current beta testing period. Went through to sign up for a 12-month TV & internet deal, and then called Comast yesterday to set up the install.
However, mine also includes telephone ( which is a necessity for my wife) and internet ( which is a necessity for both of us) and the lowest priced TV package. The more options for Internet services you have the better as it gives you negotiating power. Everybody thinks Comcast, and every other cable company, just elects to charge big money for cable.
The payback period on the modem is 16 months. Everyone knows that comcast help's customer service sucks. If you know how to talk to your customer service rep to get exactly what you need without expensive extras, you can start saving money immediately. Sometimes, the rep will tell you that they cannot give you a better deal.
I once chatted with Time Warner Cable customer service to try to get them to lower my internet fee to the price they were advertising on their web site (not a temporary promotional rate — when I went to their web site and typed in my zip code, it told me the regular rate was less than what I was paying at the time).
Just followed your method and got my Comcast bill lowered by almost $26 per month for 12 months. I finally got fed up with Comcast and cancelled my cable completely last month. A few months into the plan I called in complaining about dropped calls and how price should reflect service.
Even if you can't make a choice between the three services, you can get an entire year for what you would pay for just a few months of cable. Ask the representative to repeat the entire package with the total price. Plus I'd been with Comcast for over 15 years and I didn't think it was fair that new customers got much lower rates than loyal customers.
A good service rep will find the right deals for you. At the least, you won't have to pay for the amount of time you were without the service. I can offer you Digital Preffered $54.99 for 12months and Internet for $19.99 for 6 months. If the representative touts other perks of your service, such as virus protection, say that you don't use those services.
They have spent a lot of money getting and retaining you as a customer who pays their bill on-time every single month. Don't know anything about Comcast; once I got quit of the Qworst mess, I switched to Cox, which provides far better services for less than I was paying at the outset.
