If you’re in the market for a new or updated internet service provider, the holidays are a great time to find Black Friday deals and sales. Whether you’re moving and need an entirely new service or your internet is just lagging and you want to improve your download speeds, CenturyLink has lots of options to choose from. Save some serious cash this time of year with bonuses like free installation, great promotional rates, discounted equipment rentals, or waived (or free!) fees.
During the Black Friday and Cyber Monday season (and year-round), Centurylink has been known to offer up some amazing deals, including internet plans starting at $19.99 a month, a $75 gift card sign up bonus, discounted bundles, and lots of freebies like free shipping, activation, and bill credits. Plus, there are great ways to save a little extra with things like self-installation, streaming TV services, and signing up for paperless billing.
As the third-largest DSL provider in the United States, CenturyLink offers great bundles and prices that you can take advantage of all year. While most of their discounts can be found directly on their site, speaking with a representative to find out about promotions in your area can also save you some extra money.
CenturyLink Black Friday Bundled Deals
While Centurylink has yet to release Black Friday Sales for 2020, taking a look at current promotions and last year’s sales is a great way to see what kind of discounts to expect. Their bundles offer some of their steepest discounts with internet and home phone bundles for $85
a month, or DirecTV Xtra with home phone and internet for $159.99. With any plan, streaming TV can be added for as low as $20 a month, while traditional TV services can be added for $59.99 a month. Depending on how much you want to save, some TV bundles also offer great contact incentives—sign up for a two-year contract and you can receive a $5 credit on your bill every month. That’s $60 a year!
Depending on what your needs are and what kind of bundle you’re looking for, not only can you get great prices by bundling, but you’ll receive lots of incentives and perks like no contracts, unlimited cloud DVR, a free Genie HD DVR upgrade, zero equipment fees, free trials and more. For those that are looking for a little more than basic internet, these packages and bundles are the best way to save. Keep your eye out for sales and deals that have been popular in the past like a $150 CenturyLink Prepaid Visa Reward Card on your purchase of two plans or more or a $100 CenturyLink Visa Prepaid Card when you bundle with high-speed internet.
CenturyLink Cyber Monday Holiday Discounts
Only need the internet? Great rates are still to be found. Past discounts and deals include an extra $10 off current promotional rates for 6 months or a $50 bill credit for purchasing CenturyLink high-speed internet. There are always new and upcoming sales so watch for specials around the holiday season or contact them directly to see if there’s a promo running in your local area.
Current CenturyLink discounts include DSL internet for $49 a month, with download speeds up to 40 Mbps and data caps at 1024 GB per month, or fiber with download speeds up to 940 Mbps at $69 a month. Setup and professional installation are free with fiber. For DSL internet, the self-install option is free and a walk-through is available on their website. Both plans offer modem rentals for $15 a month—but you can save some extra money by paying a one-time fee of $200, which will save you cash if you plan to keep your plan for 14 months or longer. Note that with Centurylink you’ll often get a better deal if you prepay for plans or equipment or sign on for a longer contract term. Plus signing up for paperless billing often nets you a better rate or additional discounts and bonuses.
How to Save the Most Money on Centurylink Internet Service All Year Round
Say goodbye to traditional television. Traditional TV services like Dish and DirecTV are available through Centurylink, but the best prices can be found through streaming TV services and packages like YoutubeTV and Hulu. If you’re very dedicated to classic programming or sports then you’ll likely want traditional services, but they can cost up to three times as much and additions like sports packages cost even extra. You’ll save the most with Centurylink’s streaming services.
Install and buy your equipment. If you’re opting for fiber internet, professional installation and equipment are required, so you won’t be able to save money on a DIY option, but fiber installation is free. However, if you’re opting for DSL, save time and money by purchasing your equipment and installing it yourself. Centurylink has guides on which routers and modems will work with their service and step-by-step instructions on how to set everything up at home.
Make sure that you understand your internet needs. Packages are a great way to get the most bang for your buck, but if you’ve signed up for internet, TV, or phone plans that you don’t need, you could be overpaying1. Their fiber service for $69 a month for 940 Mbps is a great deal if you’re doing a lot of online gaming, downloading movies, or working from home, but if you’re just checking your emails and watching a movie on the weekends opt for a cheaper plan with fewer data requirements. Find out what your personal needs are to get the best pricing and service for you.
