Postby gardengirl » Nov 1st, 2017, 6:46 pm

I just got my bill and my rate went up $30!!!
What the f is that?
I have not made any changes to my account.
Anyone else have this happen? I called Shaw and the wait time was 40 minutes. I was #231 in the line...

Sorry that happened to you Gardengirl, but at #231, I'm guessing a whole lot of people woke up to this happening.

Netflix is still reasonable at $10 bux/month. Maybe remind them of that fact when you do get an rep on line? Do they have a facebook site to rant on too?

Were you maybe on some discount plan good for x amount of months, after which it reverts back to the full price?

That does seem to be quite a jump.

That makes sense. I was on some discount plan a while back and forgot all about it, until I saw the full price bill and wondered what the heck, but then I looked at how many months had passed and figured it out.

Did you call in? $31 doesn't make sense even for Shaw.

I have never payed full price for home services in my life. I always negotiate...and shrewdly at that. I recently renegotiated with telus and currently pay about a third of what i should be paying and i know they are still making money on me or they wouldn't do it.

Don't let them bend you over :up:
