Service Prices

Have you checked prices on your services lately? If not, it is probably time to do so. I recently had my newspaper subscription come up for renewal. I always get the paper for the Sunday coupons.  I’d been receiving the same newspaper for quite a while but decided to figure out the price per issue. It didn’t seem like I was getting much of a savings. I called that paper first to see if they had any special offers. When I was told I was already at the lowest rate, I decided to check another newspaper in the area. Sure enough, I was able to reduce my weekly cost in half!

This is often true with many types of services. Most of us would like to believe that we get better prices when we stick with a company long-term. Sadly, this is rarely true. More often than not, in order for companies to acquire new customers, they have to offer low introductory rates.  With some services, it is worth the effort to switch every few months to continue to get the introductory rate or special offers.

So, make a list of services you use and carefully consider which ones might be worth pricing out to other providers.  A few minutes of your time may end up saving you a considerable amount over the course of a year!

Coupon Books now available: ENJOY THE CITY COUPON BOOKS are back! Check to see if there is a school or club in your area selling these. I believe they sell for $20 and have fantastic coupons in them. I haven’t seen this year’s book yet, but in years past they have always been well worth the $20!

All You Magazine September Coupon List – Bargain Briana has been kind enough to provide a list of coupons that will be in Walmart’s All You Magazine for September.  You can check it out here to see if you want to stop by and pick up a copy. I believe it retails for $2.49 per issue if you buy it at Walmart, but you can get a subscription for $1.66 per issue here.  However, I will tell you that sometimes the subscription version has less coupons than the newsstand version.
