Hi all, it looks as though now may be a good time to haggle with Virgin Media as Sky have a sale on. As an existing customer (out of contract), I rang Virgin today to advise that I can get the same deal with Sky for £99 and I have now negotiated a new 18 month contract with Virgin for £100 (to include the price increase as from 03/2021) with better broadband speed, better phone package, better mobile phone deal and same TV package (including all sports & HD) and now including movies. A total annual saving of £588. I've been putting it off for ages - GO FOR IT!
I am currently with VM on a 12 month contract until 14 February 2021 costing me £24 incuding anytime calls. I'm also on the M50 package. I just wondered if there is a best time to call for negotiating a new deal, i.e. beginning of the month, middle, or end of the month or is it not relevant. I am happy to walk if i can't get a similar deal
Well, I did all my homework and as somebody in another thread have said, VM don't seem interested in holding clients. My package could be met but with only weekend calls instead of my current anytime calls, and an increase of £6.50 which is very much a VM standard package. I turned it down and the advisor went through the disconnection process with me. So I'm about to look at Now broadband who offer a simialr deal to my current VM deal. I've always believed that you don't gamble with something that you could lose. I was prepared and ready. I hope that others will get the deal they want. Thanks for comments and advice.
