Best money savings app ever!!!
I used 'Negotiate It' app yesterday and saved $360/yr by lowering my cable bills while getting premium movie channels and faster Internet! I reduced my monthly bill from $136/month to $106/month ($30/month and $360/yr savings). I also got faster Internet service (from 12 MBPS download speed to 18 MBPS download speed) and free Showtime, HBO and Starz premium TV channels along with it.
This app is brilliant. Best part about this app is 'step by step script'. I mean, you can have thousands of free articles on Internet or other personal finance app where it says, 'You have to call your cable providers and ask for credits.' You know what, this never works. What we need is someone with proven scripts which works. This app does that missing part. This app works and says what to tell customer rep at cable provider or car insurance. You don't have to think anything else but just say what it shows you on the screen. What else do you need?
Waste of money
As the App world goes, $4.99 for this 'App' is akin to daylight robbery. There is no real 'substance' to the 'scripts' - merely common sense (longer customer=better leverage). And in some cases the App is laughable (lower apr: "Hi, I'll be paying off my debt more aggressively from next wk & I'd like a lower apr". Only option to proceed="They said yes". Which world does that happen in?! Even better: NoFeeAccount: "Hi i'm a student(?) and want a saving+chk a/c with no annual fees + free chking + no min balance" Only option to proceed="YouGetAccount"!!). In retrospect the developer's name "I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Inc." should have been a dead giveaway - the only one getting rich is the developer! On the upside if you pay$4.99 to download this App you're already about as close as ever to calling providers to negotiate lower rates - just use your common sense and use the $4.99 to pay down your debt instead. $0.99 might - might - be more appropriate for this App. If that at all.
Performed Exactly As Advertised
This is exactly how this happened. I heard Ramit on Pat Flynn's podcast. Pat mentioned this app. I found it in App Store and bought it. I called Verizon. 10 minutes later I had a rep on the phone. I read the script in the app verbatim. The Verizon rep cut my monthly bill by $30. In a 35 minute commute driving in traffic, I paid $3 for this app and instantly saved $360 per year in cable bill. I have literally never been more satisfied by an app in my entire life.
