I listened to your “Fight For Your Money” on tape and learned so many things. Here is my story about Fighting for my Money.
I signed up with McAfee to get anti virus software for my computer. This was set up to renew automatically at a cost of $40/yr. on my credit card. I planned to contact McAfee before the renewal date of July and cancel this automatically hitting my credit card when I received an email telling me they had already billed my card.
I contacted McAfee and told them I wanted them to cancel this service. The person I spoke with was very nice and had no problem issuing credit but wanted to know why I was cancelling. I explained that I did not like anyone automatically charging my credit card. I also said I didn’t understand why they did this now instead of waiting until July. He said that they always renew 30 days before the actual renewal date.
To my surprise he said that not only could he stop the automatic renewal but would offer me to same antivirus protection for half the cost! I was amazed. One simple call saved me half the cost and stopped the auto renew.
This proves how taking a few minutes can save you money.
I am so excited that I can’t wait for my next opportunity to fight for my money!
