Have you ever tried to reduce your utility bills (electricity, cable, wireless, etc.)?
Probably not, says a 2010 survey by WhiteFence. Only 50% of Americans have shopped around—or haggled with their current providers.
In fact, 39% don’t even think it’s possible to get a better deal!
Are you kidding? Bargain hunting is what the Internet is all about—utilities included.
Price aggregators like WhiteFence, LowerMyBills and BillShrink operate like travel sites. You plug in what you want (cheaper cable, for example) and these services scan utility companies and banks nationwide to get you lower fares, um, bills.
If you’re not super busy tomorrow morning, use that Saturday slow time to cut some of those basic expenses—so you can spend more on what matters to you.
