Okay, just a quick question for you all. The blogs have been buzzing about how to save money in today's economy and the typical suggestions always pop up:
*Ditch the landline
*Cut the cable
*Stop eating out
A lot of people are suggesting calling the cable companies to "cancel" their cable just to get a really good money saving offer; I've seen people who are getting $30-$50 off a MONTH just by doing this...that's no small change in my books. So my question is this:
If you plan on keeping your cable and it's affordable at this point, would you call to "cancel" just to get a deal out of the situation?
Obviously the cable company wants to keep you on as a customer and you just want a deal, is there something wrong with this? I don't know how I feel about it. One part of me (the frugal, coupon-clipping, neverpayretail part) says HECK yes, let me try to snag my own deal and the other part of me (the honest, I-don't-ever-tell-a-lie, trying to be good a Christian part) says nope, not such a good thing since you knew how much it was when you signed up.
What do you think? Do you think it's ethical to try and get a better deal from your cable company if the money isn't that big of an issue at the moment?
