A few days ago, a friend told me that she signed up with Time Warner for a $99 bundle; ,TV internet and telephone, for a year. I have been an existing customer of
Time Warner for over 5 years. Here’s how I got that deal.
Every month or so, I call Time Warner and ask them what they can do for me. I have gotten the price of all the premium channels down from $40 to $27. We were paying $175 with all my discounts. We have everything Time Warner offers except DVR.
When I got the representative on the phone, I told him that my friend had a bundle for $99 and that I would like that deal. I told him it wasn’t fair that she had it and I didn’t since I’d been with Time Warner for 5 years. He said: “Well, lets look at your account.” He pulled up the information he needed and said: “Can you hold while I make the adjustments to your account?” I wasn’t sure what the adjustments would be but when he came back to the phone, he told me that the new price of the bundle would be $134. Whoopee!
I told my husband and he said “Good work. That’s $500 a year. You just made $500 and you didn’t even get out of your chair.” The representative told me that the only reason I got the bundle at $99 was because Time Warner currently has a promotion for the $99 bundle. If the promotion wasn’t already in effect, I wouldn’t have gotten the deal. You, too, can get the $99 bundle (plus additional dollars for premium channels) if you do what I did. I tried this once before and they didn’t go for it, but this time I was a little more insistent. I was very nice when I called. I didn’t bully them but I did whine a little. I don’t know how much longer this promotion will continue, but good luck.
