I learned something in getting my computer and phone changed over to Spectrum (Time Warner).  If you live in an apartment complex that gets a discount on your cable tv from Spectrum or any other company - check on your phone and computer, too.

When I started getting prices for my telephone and computer at Spectrum, I explained that I already had their cable tv.  I got three different prices from three different people.  Was almost at the point of cancelling when I got the fourth lady.

She explained to me that when you call, you should ask for bulk accounting.  I never heard of such a place. We are owned by Conifer Corporation who owns several apartment complexs in New York State and other states.  Spectrum offers a cable discount on all of Conifer apartments not only ours, but all the others, at least in New York State.  When Spectrum (Time Warner) offers a discount on the cable, they offer a discount on the phone and computer, too.  Bulk Accounting handles those.

So I got transfered to Bulk Accounting, they got the Conifer contract on their computer and told me that I can get a discount on my phone and computer.  The price they gave me was substancially less than the price the other sales people gave me.  I had no idea they offered this discount.  No other sales person at Spectrum told me except the last lady.

So if you live in an apartment complex and get a discount on your cable, check on telephone and computer, too.  Maybe there is a discount there you don't know about.  This discount is not just available to Conifer Corporation, but a lot of other apartment complexes.

But, make sure, you speak to the Bulk Accounting Department.

Now I hope, when I get my bill, it is as low as they said it would be.  They said, I would get my first bill in two weeks.  Just wanted to pass this information on to you.

Hope you have a great weekend,

Good Morning Cathy,
Thank you. I am glad I got the right information and this discount price. What I wonder is, if I didn't know - how many other people don't know.

You have a wonderful day, too,

Hi Dynnamae n,
It is nice to save some money. Our apartment manager is going to let the rest of the tenants know, too. It is nice to hear good news.

Hope you and your kitties have a Good Day, too,
