Reader Gets $40 Per Month Knocked Off FiOS Bill

Reader Shelve says he was able to get Verizon to give him $40 per month off his FiOS bill. How?

He just signed up for FiOS and when he got that first bill in the mail it was higher than it was promised to be. Shelve called up and threatened to cancel. Since they didn’t want all that hard work of drilling through his house and successfully avoiding hitting the electrical lines to go to waste, the Verizon rep said she had a special $40/month retention credit available for people with high-cost packages.

Schweet! Perhaps others can take advantage of this same credit.
