Tired of paying astronomical cable prices? I don't know about you, but I think charging an additional $7.99 for the HD cable box is bullshit. Call your cable company TODAY and say, "Look, I'm happy with your service, but your competitors are offering some sweet deals. I'd like to stay with you, but I'm ready to jump ship. What can you do to convince me to stay?"
Mike did just that yesterday and now we have free HBO for the next three months. And guess what? In three months, he'll be calling them again.
Try it and see what happens. Let me know!
