Attempt #1 - Some savings
My first attempt to cancel Dish went something like this: they offered to cut my $70 down to about $50 for three months. Same channels, etc. OK, I was getting Unemployment Insurance and still getting my salary for time I’d worked as a teacher, so I figured maybe I’d have a job in three months, and then I’d have saved $60 just for calling. Of course, they love the fact that I was looking at how much I was about to save rather than how much I was still going to spend (or how much I’d spent over 10 years… OVER $7000!). Anyhow, I was happy enough not to quit at the time.
Would they have gone any lower right away? I didn't ask. You might want to, or you could take their offer now, and then keep it going later, as I did.
