My contract is about to expire. Currently when I log into my account they're offering to "only" raise my rates by $20 a month for the first month of a new contract and "only" raise it $50 a month for months 2-24 of the renewal contract. Oh but they'll sweeten the pot with a $120 gift card and free HBO "A 19.99/month value" for a year.
Now that free HBO is nice but not worth it. The $120 gift card only amounts to a $5 a month discount. That means the total rate hike will be over $1,000 more during the contract period. Normally I'd call and threaten to switch to get a lower rate but with these increases it would actually be worth the inconvenience to switch.
So to the point of this thread, does anyone know of good deals for fios renewals?
edit: Nevermind, I've cancelled my service at the end of the contract and will sign up for a new contract when I qualify as a "new customer" because I'm not paying $600 a year more for the same service.
