Keeping The Windmill Alive – December, 2021

 

Perhaps you can post on a new book you're reading, a new hobby you're taking up or about random finds as you finally get around to cleaning out the..., or your most recent adventure?

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Please keep comments polite.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

cell phones

We had the old cell phone plan where there was an 8 gb plan, and 3 phones sharing the plan. We'd use 4 gb per month. One phone is my mom's.

I had a discount through work of 22% (this is a discussion in itself it got structured so that it only applies to line items of $40+), and then, I was given an additional $6/mo off per line or $18/mo.

blah blah blah you're asking well what was the monthly? It was $115 per month including all taxes and fees.

Since the $18/mo expires on 1/13/22, I called.

I waited 50 minutes on hold (Sunday), reached a person, and spent 70 minutes on the phone lol

When we got through we switched to the entry level unlimited plan which includes Canada and Mexico(this is $5/day before), then $5 off cable and $5 off cell, had to switch to autopay with checking (had credit card).

net net is new plan is $119 or $4/mo more. But the $115 was in fact going away--$4/mo more than $115. With the $5/mo discount, it's actually $1/mo less. Then the cable will also be $5/mo less. For some reason I got a gift card for $3 hahahahahaha I'll take it, amazon. I think it might be monthly as it was in the rewards section.

Then as part of the promo Disney + free 6 mos., Apple Music 6 mos, Discovery 6 mos, and Apple Arcade.

No contract at all.

In reality, the above only illustrates that I was already paying too much--kinda of like if you shopped for auto insurance and found you could save $600/year--that's not savings, it means you were paying too much.

At any rate, which carrier? Verizon. Even though I tend to dread long phone calls like the above, the rep was so pleasant it made it all worthwhile. The end. smile

p.s. remember I said entry level unlimited--this means they can slow us down when congestion. I tested it and didn't see that to be the case, was getting like 27-50 mbps down at various places near home. The speed tests already cost me 1 gb of data, but it's unlimited...

searched hard for a thread that I could contribute meaningful to! Failed in that task.

Cellphone

Canadians pay one of the highest rates for cellphones.
Now i live in mexico for the winter and pay a very reasonable 200 peso for 30 days (Cdn $ 15.00, US$ 10.00)
That gives me 3.5 GB of Data, completely FREE calls within Mexico and more than 2,000 free calls to Canada and the USA. For very little extra I can bump up the DATA!
