Finally got around to looking at our utility bills thanks to my son Brandon’s excessive cellphone data usage. Shock of all shocks, the company was over-billing us $25 per month for an international data plan that we weren’t using. We called them up right away and of course they rectified the error and issued us a $175 credit. So then we looked at our cable bill. They were charging us for equpment we didn’t have. Called them up and bang, they issued us a $50 credit and took $10 off our monthly bill. So make sure you review those bills regularly. Maybe not monthly, but at least quarterly. And call them up and demand a discount while you’re at it. The worst they can do is say no.
