Yay Verizon!

So today I sort of spent money and saved money.

I had some Gift Cards from my birthday I needed to use for some new jeans. I know, NEW. Shame on me. But I am just not as dedicated as some of the other ladies in the group. I am cutting WAY back on my clothes spending by trying to get only things that are needed. And since I only had one pair of jeans that fit, I needed more. LOL And I was not spending any money on them.

Then I had to call Verizon. A call I was dreading since it always takes forever, but I had to do it. We got our new TV (purchased with Christmas money) that replaced the one that got broken when trying to make it safe for the kids. LOL Well the new TV is HD. So I needed to call Verizon and get our box upgraded for HDTV. And while we were at it, we needed the DVD Player. This wonderful lady was very patient and willing to help me SAVE money. She realized we had all of their services, phone, internet and cable, but we did not have a bundle and were spending way too much. So we were able to drop our $200 a month bill down to $132 a month with a discount of $98 a month for the next three months. So while I bought more products, we will be spending about $68 less a month. Yay Me! and Yay the wonderful lady at Verizon. Plus it will upgrade my internet (WOOHOO!!!!) and give Steve the Sports Package for free (YAHOO!!!).

So, now might be a good time for you ladies to check in with your cable service for new plans. Worked for us.


  1. That's really great about Verizon!

  2. Woohoo! Good deal! We're too cheap for cable. ONE day we'll have it... ONE day. sigh

  3. Wowza! That's So Great!

    I'll have to tell the hubby about this! Thanks for the tip!

  4. Time Warner will give you a loyal customer discount if you tell them you need to downgrade due to finances :)

    Good job on saving so much per month, Jamie!
