I've tried the whole threaten to leave Comcast thing and they say go ahead you won't find better service anywhere else. Then they will tell you to lower your service if you want your bill lowered.


Quoting archerkaty:

Call comcast threaten to cancel or see if them will give a temporary discount. See if you can call cc companies and lower interest rate. It never hurts to ask. And get an energy audit see if there is anyway to save there.

Someone comes out and tells you what is using the most electricity and how to help cut costs or some electric companies like mine offer free long lasting light bulbs.
