Save on your cellphone plan! YMMV
I must admit I LOVE my cellphone, but I do not love the bill every month (who does?) Your bill can get rather steep(like mine) especially when you start adding data and texting to your plan! I am a talker (easily consume 3,000 cell minutes a month, -yes I don't know HOW to shut up)
So if you are anything like me, or worse, you have KIDS now on your family plan (YIKES!!!! I am not looking forward to those days!) you might want to read this post. I was talking to one of my good friends yesterday(on my cellphone no less) and she informed me she gets a 10% discount on her cell plan through her husbands employer. I thought, wow, lucky you, I would love a 10% discount (mike at least cover my taxes!).
Well, then I got to thinking harder and realized I have a benefit from my employer too that offers discounts to Sea World, movie theaters etc. I only looked at this briefly once and thought it wasn't a huge money saver and didn't delve into it (SHAME ON ME!). So tonight, I logged in and GUESS WHAT! 10% discount on cellphone service just by calling a number and requesting it! Super easy, I was on the phone less than 10 minutes and 10% just cut off my bill EVERY MONTH!
I did a little research and it seems there are vast numbers of companies and organizations that offer this same discount! Students can get discounts, AAA members, credit union members, shoot I bet even AARP offers this!
So, check your employer, check your significant other's employer, if you are student, check your school, check your insurance company, your credit union. You are bound to have an organization that offers this same discount and you could be missing out on savings you didn't even know where there!
Readers, I pose this question. What methods do you find to save money on other areas like electric, cable service, etc. I would love to add your tips to a post!
