I'm sure most folks here have cell phones, cable tv or satellite tv and
some sort of bundle package for home phone.
That is if you have a home land line at all.
I bet there are also a few here who have or know a neighbor or relative
who has an old fashioned ATT land line.
My neighbor who is a sweet old lady with no local family has an ATT land line.
She goes to our church, we watch out for her as much as possible.
She was at our home last evening for a good home cooked meal and
the conversation got to phones.
I asked what she was paying.
She replied $96 a month!
This is for an ATT land line with all the whistles and bells and long distance.
Cut to the chase-- today with her permission I called ATT and asked
the robot voice for a RETENTION SPECIALIST.
You have to say it 2 or 3 times but the 'bot will eventually give you
a live person who's job is to keep you as a customer.
I was able to negotiate her bill down to $54 a month.
This is with the same service she has now.
I know she could go with our local Time Warner cable and get a phone
for $20 a month. I told her that but she is old and set in her ways and
wanted to stay with ATT.
$54 a month is too much but it's $40 a month LESS than she was paying
just by me calling in her behalf.
So if you or someone you know is paying some astronomical amount
for an ATT land line- you CAN get a discounted rate with a phone call to
Must ask for a retention specialist. Must call during normal business hours.
ATT 800 288 2020
Her sister in another state is paying north of $100 to ATT for the same thing.
We'll get her's taken care of in a day or so.....
YOU can do this!!
