I realized I was paying $60 for the year to get the Saturday and Sunday papers only. We never even read the Saturday paper, we really only want Sundays. So I decided to call and ask if we could cut out the Saturday paper and get a cheaper price.
I was initially told that the price I was paying was the price for Sunday papers only and that Saturdays had been thrown in as a bonus, so they couldn't go any cheaper. I told the gentleman that it cost us $1 per week, therefore $52 a year, to get the paper out of the machine down the street. I said we would prefer to do that than overpay for a delivered paper.
He then put me on hold so he could speak with his supervisor about getting us a better deal. When he came back on the line, he informed me that he could get me the Sunday paper only for $48 for the year. I took the deal!
See, it never hurts to ask...I'm thinking about doing the same thing with the cable company!
