Money Hack: Save Money on Directv
DirecTV is smart about luring customers in for a 2 year agreement. The first year they discount packages as low as $29.99 + box rentals and HD, however after a year your base package discount skyrockets to about $78 and you are locked in for another year.
I used this tactic to save myself $220.
1. Call Directv and say you would like to cancel service
2. Tell them you are unable to afford your service based on the economy.
3. They will try to keep you by offering you credit usually its $100 or more depending on who you get and how hard you try to bargain.
By using this tactic you are able to save at least $100.
