Yes I would totally second this.  We had signed up for a promotional price for cable.  When that was over and our bill from $80 to $130 I called with the intention of having to cancel.  She said she could reduce it back down to $80 for another six months.  She said to always call because there is ALWAYS something they can do to lower your bill.  They would rather have you pay a small amount than cancel and go with another company.

Another thing I would suggest is getting an independent insurance agent. My family has one that we all use for everything. He isn’t tied to any specific company, but when I get something (like a house or my engagement ring) he searches all companies to find me the best deals. He also keeps up on the rates and tells me when it would be smart to change. And, because my whole family uses him and has for a decade I know he’s going to do his best for us because he gets so much business from us.

I do the same as Corgitales.  My dad was with this guy since I was a kid, so I figure he doesn’t want to lose all our business.  (I always try to let places know that my whole (large) family goes there so they treat me right- that’s how I got a FANTASTIC deal on my car.)

Good questioning, and it’s also good to have all your insurance at one company.  You can save quite a bit by having auto/home/etc all with the same company.
