I would just add for those with offers about to expire re: VIP+Gigabit - the same service and pricing can be maintained by escalating to management office and beyond.cleacy1972 wrote: ↑Apr 16th, 2018 9:20 pmRecent call, or awhile ago? I'm already happy with my existing contract and have 12 months left so I wouldn't take it, but overall gigabit+premier+game plus at $99 sounds about the same as the vip+gigabit+centreice I used to have. It's definitely though something for people with upcoming expiry to go after.
A 2 year term @ $99 for the 1st year and $109 for the 2nd year isn't a particularly enticing promo regardless of no term commitment. They've played the same routine for the last several years. While you're under no obligation, they're also less motivated once a "hot deal" comes down the pipeline and you're looking to switch over...especially as you're closer to the 2nd year. Less incentive for them to actually earn your business and naturally they're thinking "he/she will just switch to Bell next year." Most importantly escalating to management office and beyond will just lead to "well, you're currently coming up on the 2nd year of a price commitment we think is more than fair." I find it's always better to be at the most aggressive price while actually displaying loyalty, tenure, payment history, etc. Move ahead year by year, escalate and maintain your grandfathered cable + VIP + home phone @ $99 and leave no wiggle room come next year's escalation. You'll be in a better position as I have discovered for the last several years.
Just my $0.02
