Good afternoon everyone! Have you ever been frustrated with your satellite provider? Does it ever seem that your bill goes up randomly or every year? Have you ever heard a friend mention the awesome deal they JUST got with the SAME provider that you're using, even though you pay TWICE what they've been offered? Well, if you find yourself in this situation, have no fear. What many people don't realize is that you can negotiate with your provider. Often, you get special discounts or promotions when you first sign up that expire over time. Every so often you need to check to see if you're getting more channels than you really need. This will happen because initially, certain channels may be offered for free and are packaged into your plan. Once this "special" expires, you then may begin to get charged for those channels even if you aren't particularly fond of them. Pick up the phone, and simply ask the questions! Quite frequently, your provider will be more than happy to give you the most current discounts in order to keep a loyal customer! I have had to do this a couple of times in the past, and have had good success. Don't approach them in a confrontational way, but rather just as a consumer who needs to save every extra penny! Hope this works as well for you as it has for me. Good Luck!
