It’s easy to focus on how much money a new type of technology will cost you. But have you ever really looked for the ways that it can help you save? Yes, seriously! There are all sorts of ways to use technology to your advantage and to help you save money all over the place. Here are just a few things can you try.
It wasn’t that long ago that installing Internet, cable, and a phone line meant dealing with three separate companies--four if you decided to have a cell phone (remember when that was still a choice?). It got expensive fast. Today, you can choose to use one company for all of these needs. More importantly, when you do choose to get your services through a single company, you can bundle them up to reduce their costs. For example, Verizon triple play offers you Internet, cable access, and a phone line via one program. That’s one bill instead of three. Not too shabby, right?
It doesn’t feel like all that long ago that if we wanted to watch our favorite shows and movies we needed a TV, a cable box, a DVR, and a DVD player. That’s a lot of hardware. That’s a lot of ugly cord tangle to try to hide. Instead of buying each of these things separately, work with companies that offer you more options with less equipment.
