Cable Savings

We've recently observed that we don't use any of the features of our digital cable from Comcast and subsequently decided to downgrade our service. This drops our bill from $62.xx to $50.xx, a savings of $60.00 per year.

Now for the interesting part. When I contacted Comcast to downgrade from Digital to "Full Basic" they offerred to give me a discount of $5 to $7 per month (I can't remember which). Bottom line, if I wanted to keep my current cable service and pay less then all I had to do was indicate I wanted to downgrade and my cable company would basically make a counter-offer.
