Our bills have been pouring in. Between all my medical costs from my breast cancer treatments, to the vet bills (our dog just had surgery and is doing fine), and the regularly monthly household bills things have been adding up. I needed some tips to lower your monthly bills with phone calls.
I thought I’d see if there was any way to reduce the bills, even if by just a little.
Tips to Lower Your Monthly Bills – I Lowered my bills with 2 easy calls
This post ran a while ago, but I’m reposting it since it’s still a great way to save some money.
I made 2 phone calls today and lowered our monthly bills by $18/mo. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but that’s just from 2 calls and it will add up over time.
Here’s what I did.
How to save money on AT&T Landline Bill – I called and asked about my current bill – what features we have. We have the unlimited long distance which we do take advantage of. I didn’t want to get rid of that. Some how, I managed to get $3 off the monthly bill. I’m not sure if is because we have been customers for a while or the guy was just being nice? Then, I saved another $10/mo by combining my wireless bill with the landline bill. I didn’t know they offered that deal. If you have AT&T for both wireless and landline, check into that if you haven’t already.
How to save money on DirecTV Bill – I called DirecTV and was able to bring down our monthly cost by $5 (with same channels) and get an additional Starz package for 3 months. We have been customers with them for a while. I’m not sure what qualifies someone for that deal, but it can’t hurt to ask.
