Seriously?!?! Now You Offer Me A Deal?

So on the heels of my post yesterday about newspapers, tonight I received a call from our old newspaper company asking why we cancelled our subscription.  I explained about the deal I got from the new newspaper and how I had contacted the old one to see if they could do a similar deal but they said they could not.

The lady then says, "well we have the same deal - $50 for the year."  So I explained that the best deal they told me was $120, so I had instead gotten 4 subscriptions to the other paper.

I guess I should have known better.  I have found with most services that if you cancel and then wait, they usually call you back with a better offer.  In this case I had already pre-paid for the new newspaper for the year so I'm not switching back.  But I would have been happy to stay if they had matched the deal either time I inquired about it.

One day I'll write about the smoking hot deal I got with XM/Sirius!
