I was talking to my neighbor a couple of weeks ago and she asked how much I paid for my trash. I found out she paid $35 more for the same service I had, she just used a different company. She decided to change companies but first called her old trash service and told them she was canceling and why. They immediately said "Oh, we can give you the same price as theirs. How much do they charge?"
It always, always pays to ask whether it’s because your credit card interest is too high, a hospital bill doesn’t seem right, school supplies cost too much and on and on.
The worst they can do is say no. Remember the old saying "sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never harm me." Hearing the word NO can not physically harm you so call and ask.
