Completely Pleased with Myself

May 15th, 2015 at 08:24 am

I phoned ATT this morning to try to find a better plan. The first guy wouldn't budge on the rate, but as I hemmed and hawed about dropping them, he transferred me to "customer retention" who have given me a $50 credit and saved me $13/month on our plan.

If I could just get my 89-year-old father-in-law on Skype, we could drop the international plan!

Total annual savings on this is $206. And special shout out to CCF who keeps me motivated.

    Congrats! Nice to have a small win.

    Did you know you can call his phone number from your Skype? It's really cheap, less than a cent per minute I think. That's what we do for NT's 89-year-old grandma.

    We'll give it a shot, ceejay!

    You can also look into google voice. I believe it's also 1 cent per minute for international calling. (Or maybe even free if you use wifi. It ended up being free calling when my spouse was in Japan).

    Or Ooma for home phone service probably has low rates too. Glad to help!

    My parents still pay for and use calling cards for international calls. Wow. I've already offered an alternative where they don't have to pay for ANYTHING for international calls. Literally ZERO, and they don't want to try it.

    Wow that's awesome

    I was going to suggest Google Hangouts for calling - over WiFi should be free. Smile
