We don’t believe in paying full price. At FamilyWize, we work hard every day to make sure that you never have to pay full price for your family’s prescription medications. In fact, FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card and App users save an average of about 40 percent on their prescription purchases.
Here are four other things that you should never pay full price for:
1. Magazine Subscriptions
When was the last time you spent over $20 on a consumer magazine subscription? Hopefully, with the exception of a few specialized publications, it was a long time ago. With the proliferation of promotional deals, Amazon.com magazine subscriptions, and sites like DiscountMags.com, there is really no excuse for paying full price. Having said that, it is important to remember that many subscriptions may not auto-renew at the same low price you signed up for. Be sure to watch for your auto-renewal notice so that you can cancel, or better yet, negotiate for a better deal.
2. Rental Cars
When we rent a car at the airport, most of us at least compare deals on a travel site like Travelocity or Orbit.com. But did you know that you can also look up car rental coupons on RetailMeNot.com? Try it! Many employers also offer corporate discounts, even if you are booking for personal travel, like a family vacation. Check with your HR department to see what is available at your company.
3. Home Appliances
There are multiple tricks to getting the best deal possible on a home appliance. First, consider the timing. Ideally, you want to visit the store when the newest models are being released. The stores will be eager to get rid of last year’s models – opening the door to discounts and negotiation. It is also smart to compare prices at different stores – many stores will price match their competitors and/or throw in free delivery to win your business. A home appliance purchase is definitely one of those times where a little extra legwork can save you hundreds of dollars.
4. Cable/Internet Bundles
We’ve all been there. We pay our cable/internet bill and then hours later see a commercial on TV for a new promotional rate that is better than our current package. Don’t get angry – just pick up the phone! Most of the time, the customer service representatives are trained to find you a better deal to keep your business, but you have to call and ask. If you aren’t successful on your first call, try again at a different time. You will likely access a different representative who may be more helpful.
