Cost of cable bill is lower!
My boyfriend was discussing cable yesterday with a friend at work. His friend told him that he pays about 110 dollars a month for his TV, phone and internet package AND had a sports package and movie package on the TV. We were paying 153 a month for TV, internet and phone and had no extra packages. My boyfriend called yesterday to see if they could lower our bill or at least give us a movie package cheap. The first guy he spoke to said he could give us a 5 dollar discount and my BF refused that. So without any other offers he told my BF that he was transfer him over to the cancellation department. Apparently he didnt want our business. My BF asked to speak to someone else. He got someone else on the phone and ended up dropping our bill to 102 dollars! The guy also gave my BF his extension # and said to call him directly if he wants to get some sort of movie package and he'll make sure it's discounted. They must have chitchatted on the phone for 30 minutes. My boyfriend is an awesome negotiator!
