Comcastic Tip


We have cable and internet through Comcast, and over the past 6-9 months our bill just kept going higher and higher. Part of it was because we got a DVR, which is worth every penny, but that didn't seem to explain how high it was. So in an effort to reduce some monthly expenses, we decided to downgrade our package a bit. Maybe get rid of HD or go to a lower channel package (who watches the Hallmark Channel anyway?).

So I called up Comcast to see about downgrading and how much it would save us. The sales rep I talked to had another thing in mind. He offered to expand our tv package, let us keep HD, as well as the high speed internet, and still discount our bill $50 a month. 50 bucks! It's a promotion for existing customers and good for one year. At the end of that year I'll either call in again to see if they have new promotions or get satellite. Anyways, I just thought I'd share that tid bit with everyone. If you have Comcast, it might be worth a call saying you want to downgrade or cancel and see what they give you. A 10 minute called saved us 600 bucks over the next year. Why didn't I do this 6 months ago? Do you know how many Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendy's I could have eaten with that money? A lot.....that's how many.

Or you could just siphon internet from your neighbors and pay for only TV. I've heard of people doing that...

Every goes door to door selling/upgrading comcast. That is the new thing now Trev, I could have told you that. Unfortunatly we don't have internet or cable. Try living like that for a summer. You really find out who your true friends are. hahah

Leave it to Trevor to convert all his extra change into cheeseburgers. Sounds like Trevor is beefing up in order to take the biggest loser 09 championship.

Jason has never liked Comcast for that reason--they're always raising their prices. That's why we use a combination of Quest and Peak Internet up here in Oregon. I know the "bundling" of services is supposed to save you money, but we're staying with what we have for the moment.
