Just to share a success today!!

I am paying £55.23 for SKY broadband and TV with Netflix.
 My contract ends soon as it was going to rocket to £75. Today then sent me an email to accept an offer of £65.50.

So I called them and said: Hello, how are you, etc ( ...nicely )' I wonder if you could help me as my contract is about to expire and the quote you sent me has gone up in comparison so I have been looking around and before leaving Sky I wanted to ask you if you have any better deals for me, please? '

She immediately responded that she could give me a better deal and needed to speak to the Supervisor. So she came back with a total of £50.20 in July, then down to £47 in August, then £49 in September and that amount for 18 months!!! Now, I got an email saying that my new contract is : 
Sky Broadband Superfast
Discounted by £5.00 for 18 months
Discounted by £8.00 for 18 months
Discounted by £2.00 for 1 month and 5 days
Sky TV
Discounted by £5.00 for 18 months
Discounted by £8.00 for 18 months

AMAZING DEAL GUYS! Thank you Martin for encouraging me to haggle !!! so it is worth phoning them before accepting any offers or looking around, best wishes to all, a happy woman today! Claudia
