Let's be frank, sometimes cable bills seem too high and often times people will run across a better cable deal than the one they currently have. That can make a cable customer see red and perhaps wish that lowered bill could be theirs. Often times it can be. Give this tip a try the next time you want to lower your cable bill.
Call your local cable company and explain that you saw an advertisement for a different cable company and exactly what is offered in the ad. Explain that you have been a loyal cable customer for quite some time and you are contemplating switching to another company unless your current company can match the special and save you some money on your cable bill. If you haven't tried this strategy out, it may be worth a shot, as many cable companies will try to please their customers by doing whatever it takes. However, do not be surprised or upset when the cable company turns down your request. If you have tried it several times, it may not work either. Either way, it is worth a shot to see if you can lower that cable bill.
