Getting the Best when Negotiating for Bundles and Extras: How To

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | March 8th 2012 | Views:

The good old days when you had to run from pillar to post for availing utility service have gone. Today, almost household services like internet, home phone, wireless phone and TV are available from a single provider. The most common way to call an all-in-one service is “bundle.” True to its word you get everything in a single place, and that you need to do is unpack it and you have everything before. Time Warner Bundles are no different, they too offer all communication needs in a single pair of wire right at your doorsteps. Bundled services can be advantages for both the stake holders; the buyer as well as the seller.

For the buyer getting a bundled service is advantageous because they can save a lot of money and do away with the need to check bills from different service providers. For the service providers it means economy of scale and it also means revenue from the users by providing a variety of services. Bundled services tend to be cheaper because providers utilize the same infrastructure more efficiently. A typical example is communication services. Just imagine what it did be like if you shopped separately for internet, home phone, TV and wireless services. There will be cables and cables around your home; one for internet, phone and TV, and they will cost you the earth, and to top it there is going to be the installation charges and three at that. With a bundled service it is going to be just one! Great isn’t it? However to get the best you will need to do some hard bargaining. Do it, and you are certain to get the maximum. Here are guidelines that you can use when you do the hard part of choosing your bundled service provider. Use is where ever you can and benefit the most.

If you have already begun your quest for a money saving bundle and zeroed onto something interesting, then the next step you need to take is call a representative from the company. Find out whether what you saw on their website is the absolute. Often they aren’t if there is someone from the competition doing the rounds in your area. If you negotiate hard enough you are sure to get something more; a cash discount or even some freebies that you can use effectively. Calling more than one service provider and getting a quote and negotiating can work wonders for you. Confront each representative with the quote you have from others and sure it is going to be windfall for you.

Did you know that the bills you get can be different from what you have negotiated? Yes, it happens more often and that is because customers migrate to plans without a second thought, and in the process they lose the hard won dollars they have earlier made by a previous negotiation. See the bills that other customers are getting and you will have got all the clues to what you will end up with. It is usual for companies to add taxes and other government levies toward which you haven’t given your thought. Looking at sample bills will give you all that information about what you will end up with at the end of the month.

Be vary about the extras you are offered. You operator can make up for the lost dollars in a negotiation when you buy extras. So the rule is negotiate hard enough for the extras just as you did the first time you ordered services, and that will ensure the best deal for you. Another trick that service companies do to get new accounts and keep it is to encourage the customers into buying long term plans. There is always a possibility that you may want to get out of a deal without losing your money. So plan for that eventuality too.
