Cable TV a little pricey? You might find a better deal

Posted: Updated:

It's a common problem. We want to watch our favorite TV shows but our cable bill has gotten a little pricey and we're not sure that it is worth it.  So, here are some ways that might help you lower those expensive cable bills.

First, the best thing you can do is come armed with a deal from the competition. Look at the other company's website to see what it is offering. Your current cable company might match it or even beat it.  Be diligent and call and check in often.  

Keep track of when your current deal ends. Most companies bank that you wont remember to call back after your six-month, or year-long deal expires.

Pay your bill on time. This puts you on higher footing for negotiating. The company will want to keep you if you are a good customer.  

Be open to "lock-in" deals.  Experts that the Wall Street Journal say lock-in deals can be beneficial.  

Finally, if you call and come up short, the solution could be as simple as waiting a few days, and then calling again.  You will likely get a new customer service agent who may be more open to cutting you a deal.
