Ha! In the realm of funny today...

Six months back, Dan and I signed up for a cable TV promotion through Comcast (our cable ISP) that essentially got us basic cable for $10/month for six months (it was $20/month for the cable TV, plus a $10/month multi-product discount for having both cable internet and television services).

As that promotion is now ending, and I have never in that six months watched TV, and Dan does so very very rarely (and certainly not enough to justify the normal price of $45/month), I just called up to cancel the cable service.

"Well, just so you're aware, by canceling that service, you'll lose the multi-product discount and your internet will go back up to $XX per month. Would you like to downgrade instead, to our lowest cable level [local network channels only] at $12.30/month and keep the discount?"

Honestly, since the only channels we ever DID watch aren't included in the network-only cable, it's really not worth it to us to keep it. Thanks for trying to help out though!

"Hm...Well, I can give you $5 off the network-only cable for six months, making it $7.30/month extra, and still give you the multi-product discount - how about that?"

So...We'll have network channels AND cable internet for three bucks per month cheaper than the internet by itself for six months?

"Yes, that's correct."

What the heck! Sure.

I still don't expect we'll ever watch it, but hey! Three bucks is three bucks.
