What do I say to the cable company retention specialist?
The cable companies will do everything they can to keep taking your money. Make it clear you want to cancel service, and you’ll be transferred to a retention specialist who’ll offer you special deals, reduced rates, and bundled services. Often, they’ll also try to confuse you with technical jargon and contract demands.
You’re not under any obligation to have a conversation or answer questions unless they relate to canceling your service. We recommend refusing to answer questions about anything other than canceling service.
Be firm and consistent in telling them you’re canceling no matter what, and they’ll give up. And when they do…you’ll have that beautiful sense of satisfaction that only comes from dumping your cable or phone company.
