Call your carrier when you hear about service price drops


Just got a note from jkOTR reader Steve, who referred back to our post on T-Mobile’s lower unlimited data add-on service. Back in September, T-Mo dropped the price from $29.99 to $19.99 a month. That’s all well and good, but if you were expecting the carrier to automatically lower the price on your monthly bill, you’re likely expecting too much. Always, always, always call in to your carrier when you hear about price drops on your existing services. Steve finally did and he’s now saving the $10 a month. As he says: “I’m sure a price increase would be automatic.” and he’s 100% correct. Unfortunately, you could be flushing money down the drain if you don’t call to ensure the price adjustment if one is available. In fact, it’s probably a good idea to check what your carrier is offering in terms of plans and price on a fairly regular basis: these plans change all the time and you might score a change in your favor simply by watching for one and calling in.While we’re on the subject, don’t forget about the many ways you can score a discount on your cellular bill with a new contract.
