Tip #5 – Optimize your cell phone bill

Many of us pick a cell phone plan, then never check to see if it’s the right one for us based on our usage. Most plans offer monitoring of your usage through their website. Take advantage of this feature and note what you’re actually using each month for services such as text or data. If you’re only using 150 text messages, you can probably downgrade to the “200 text messages/month” plan. Also, research competitor carriers for similar plans then call your carrier to see if they can offer you a better deal. Negotiating a better plan will be easier if you have facts to draw upon that you could go elsewhere for less money. Retaining current customers is generally a lot less expensive than acquiring new ones so they may be willing to work with you to keep your business.
