I won!!!!! Comcast eat your heart out!

I won, I won, I won! I called Comcast and threatened to leave. I told the representative that I had been offered a better package with Direct TV and no matter how crappy their services were, I was willing to make the sacrifice. So I was offered a rate of $85 dollars a month including DSL internet and two digital boxes with the HBO package. Plus, he knocked off all those hidden charges and the fifty bucks extra. How you like me now!!!
Note to ALL: Always ask for a better price. It’s not going to be offered unless you do so!

    I had a similar experience a couple of years ago. I called up to cancel my internet service and they offered me a cable modem for $19.99 for a year. It was awesome while it lasted.

    Exactly. “While it lasted.” Those who know me know that I am constantly at battle with Comcast. Their is simply no reason for a technology as common as cable tv to be as much as Comcast charges. Until recently I won every battle, but they told me that it wasn’t fair to other customers for me to any more offers. Message to Verizon: Get your TV service in the city PRONTO–you will instantly have a ton of customers who simply want to get the hell away from Comcast.

    I feel sorry for everyone with the current triple play deal when their deals expire…
