AOL Platinum £9.99

I rang up AOL and told them I was going to leave unless they price matched SKYs £10 internet. It would cost 25£ + 10£ total with sky, 25£ for the TV and £10 for the net.

AOL agreed to drop their platinum price from £29.99 to £9.99 for me and if any speed upgrades do happen I will get them as well for the same price.

Also still got freeview, didnt get sky after all... so now I get the fastest unlimited AOL for as long as I want for £9.99 a massive saving of £20 on £30

Give it a go

:T

    lol I pay £19.99 for dial up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you think they will drop my price and promise a speed increase (if only) hey. Im stuck on 56k (well 8K) as AOL likes to connect at.
    If you mention that you're serious about leaving for another provider they hopefully will - I'm near the end of my contract now and they have given me up to 8MB for the same £9.99 :D As you're moving to bb they'll want you on a 12-month contract but that's no bother, I mean, £9.99, for that kinda speed :T

    Try phoning again, did you speak to member services or the actual cancellations department? Usually the cancellations team can make the offer - perhaps find an equivalent offer and quote that to them?

    Ahh yeah, you can't contact the cancellations team via Live Help - try Member Services on 0117 9191100 (saynoto0870) and I guess keep trying till you get it, they do offer it! :D

    I got this deal too. I spoke to the cancellations department and they tried to offer me 19.99. I said "No thanks I'm offski". They dropped it to 14.99 and I still said "no thanks, I'm even more off". So, they ummed and ahhed a bit and told me that as I was such a "valued customer" they could offer me the special deal of 9.99 pcm. Worth haggling for I think.

    I don't have the phone package but I did confuse the guy by saying I was with TalkTalk which was part of the CPW group so there wasn't really any point switching me (he bought it :D) - maybe instead of asking for platinum, ask for a faster speed - when I phoned, I never mentioned an upgrade to platinum, I just said I can get 8MB for £9.99 elsewhere and they ended up agreeing ;)
