August 31, 2007, Newsletter Issue #27: What If I Don't Need All Bundle Services?

Tip of the Week

Many people purchase bundled services because they want to save money. There is nothing wrong with that. However, many people purchase bundled packages with certain services included in that package that they do not need, still thinking it will save them money in the long run.

For instance, let's say you contact Time Warner about bundling together your cable television and your Internet. Let's say they only offer a bundled package deal in your area that includes digital phone service as well. You sign up thinking that you are saving money in the long run. However, you are actually paying for a service that you don't need or have- digital phone. Why pay money for a service that you aren't going to use? You are actually spending money on something you don't even have.

However, if you really need all of these services within your home, it makes sense to have them bundled together and paid for on one bill per month. Studies have shown that by bundling together these services you can save yourself almost $500 a year depending on the service provider and the cost of the bundled package when compared with paying each separately.

What is important to remember is that if you wish to bundle together your services, just make sure you are actually going to use all of them, otherwise you are wasting your money!
