It is a common knowledge that we should call our cable company and ask for better price. With today's technology, a lot of people cut ties with cable providers. So, when you call them, they must try to make you happy.
When I first sign up for Verizon FIOS, I was paying $130 a month for cable, internet, & phone service. After several years, my monthly bill is now $169/m.
I knew I should call them and ask for better price, but I hate calling cable company. So, I've been putting it off for a few years. I am pretty sure that cable companies know we hate calling them.
Today I finally called them, now it's Frontier FIOS. And they gave me $25/m discount just like that. That's $300 extra annual income for me.
So… I lost $1000+ last several years because I was not on top of this game… because I hate calling my cable company.
I am the only person to blame on this. I need to be more proactive. I feel stupid. I will not let this happen again.
