How to Choose Between Different Promotions
Frontier's promotions change several times throughout the year, but if you do your research it isn't hard to get the best deal available. After years of collecting their plans and prices here are our top 3 tips for getting the best deal.
1 -- Decided on What Services You Need
When shopping for TV, Internet, and home phone service the general advice is to bundle products together to save money.
This can be great advice, but only if you are going to be using the other products that come with the bundle or promotion.
Recently many providers have begun offering incredible deals if you buy multiple services and while these deals can be great, we really recommend sticking to what you know you'll use.
This is important because once the promotional period expires these additional services can begin to add up to a big difference in your monthly bill.
Overall this advice is pretty intuitive, but the easiest way to save money when shopping for services is to only buy the services you know you'll use.
2 -- Compare Prices With a Contract and Without
When comparing plans and prices, make sure to check the difference between a plan with a contract and a plan without a contract.
This is especially important if you plan on changing locations within the contract length. Depending on the way the contract is setup, if you cancel your contract before the end of the term you can be hit with a heavy early termination fee.
Our advice is to find a plan without a contract if you know you'll be moving within the next 12-24 months because contrary to popular belief, even if you move outside of the service area of a provider in many chases you can still be charged an ETF.
3 -- Call to Verify the Final Price
Depending on what plan you choose, sometimes there are additional fees like equipment charges for item such as modems. These items can add up, so to be sure of the final price you'll be paying each month, we recommend talking to an agent and finding out the following:
- The first month price.
- The monthly price during the contract or promotion.
- The price after the contract/promotion ends.
By verifying these numbers with an agent you can avoid surprises when you see your monthly bill and you can get make sure you are finding the right plan for your needs.
