So I called my cable company three weeks ago to ask for a better deal on my bundle – they said there was none at the time being. Ok. I did hint that I might cancel it later.
Two weeks ago they sent me two mails, promoting an alternative bundle. I contemplated about it, but for some reason I did not make the call and buy the bundle.
This week I said to my friends that I am considering canceling my cable. I was 95% sure that I could live without it.
Today the company calls me and offers a much better deal than before – and it is $25 cheaper while also providing more internet usage and free long-distance calls. What? 🙂
Aww.. Did you really need to take all these trouble to send me the mails and then to call me? Why did you not give me the deal when I called? I would be happier. Anyways, that was sweet of them.
I am glad that I did not take the deal they promoted in the mail. Sometimes I think that that is a game that is won by the patience. Should I have wanted the deal in the mail, they would not offer me the current one.
