Default Comcast Internet for $19.99/month for pre-existing customers!

I just called Comcast to add Showtime to my account. Before asking for the upgrade, I simply asked if they had any promotions right now for pre-existing customers. The operator paused and said, "Let me check... we can give you the internet for $19.99 a month for the next six months." They changed it right then and there and my online billing reflected a credit immediately. I was being charged $42.95/month... so, it's a savings of $22.96/month for six months... a total savings of $137.76!

I don't know if this will work in all areas or with all operators. But, it's worth a shot.

Call 1-800-COMCAST

Go through the prompts as if you were going to cancel
When you talk to the CSR, ask if there are any promotions for current customers

So far, this has always worked best for me. The retentions people are used to people complaining all day, so far they've all liked the break from people complaining

if the above doesn't work try:

call 1-800-COMCAST
go to cancellation dept.
Tell them i am paying too much and like to schedule a cancellation (15 days from the date u call).
If CSR gives u a offer u r good but if not then cancel the comcast and call after 15 min to cancel the cancellation
