Verizon Wireless

March 29th, 2016 at 04:24 am

I used to be pretty good about calling companies like Verizon every 12-18 months to see if I could get better rates on my plans. Yesterday, I needed to call Verizon Wireless because we had used up our data for the month, with 2 days left on our cycle. The rep said that they came out with a new plan last fall, where we can get 2 extra GB per month, and pay $30 less. No gimmicks. She signed me up retroactively to the beginning of my cycle so I could get it for this month.

I'm thrilled, but also a bit annoyed. I understand why they don't just automatically pass the savings along, but it would be much easier if they did.

I was also on the phone with my insurance company yesterday. They're going to send me out a form to change my deductibles. Somehow they're only $100 (!) and I'm going to change them to $750, but they won't do it without a signed form.

Today I'm going to call Verizon about my FIOS/Internet/phone plan, because that's definitely another one where I may be able to shave off a few dollars.

Some slow and steady progress, but better than nothing.

    My phone is a $30 plan with 1.5gb of data and the phone company is always trying to get me to recontract (have 9 months left of a 24 month contract); they will send a text with different rates - not really cheaper but the same with more data. $30 less than what you currently have is a great deal though Smile.

    Yes, Verizon did change plans. I checked last year and it wouldn't have made any difference for us, but just a couple weeks ago I checked again. Plan is only slightly cheaper if I remember right, but we saved $20 per phone ($80) by switching. I think primarily because we are nearing our contract end date. Phones are now paid for...so we save $80+ per month until we determine we need new phones.

    It's good to keep an eye on those reoccurring expenses! Good savings!
