Unflushable Foxtel…

For about 9 months I have tried to disconnect my Foxtel service. We were paying $80 a month, which we can afford, but we just didn’t feel we were getting the value out of it. We don’t watch a lot of TV and Mina was watching entirely too much television (and it was always easier to let her watch TV when I had work to do!).

So, about 9 months ago, IÂ rang to disconnect Foxtel. The guy then offered me the same package for $55 for 3 months. So, I thought that that was ok and signed on. Then, when it returned to $80, I rang to disconnect it again. Because we have been Foxtel customers for 3 years, he said we should suspend it for 3 months instead.

Today, with the 3 month suspension up, I rang again to disconnect. This time, he offered me our package for $40 for 3 months.

ARGH!

I know I don’t HAVE to sign up and can just say “No” but I think that half price is pretty good value. Jase will be pissed that I am so easily talked around by salespeople, but meh. I take after my grandmother, who, despite being a staunch Roman Catholic, buys the Jehovah’s witness magazines “just to be nice”.

Anyway, it’s funny how Foxtel REALLY don’t want to lose their customers and yes, I’m a gullible, gullible woman. But hey, I get Foxtel cheap.

(I wonder if I can claim it as a work related expense given that it supervises my child when I am working… hahahaha)

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on Rapskally.com, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Wanna Subscribe?

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
