Sticker Shock

My husband and I were never into electronics and cellphones. It wasn’t until recent years that we bought cellphones. Only to follow them with tablets. That doesn’t mean we like change though.

After seeing one too many ads for the iPhone 13 Pro, I decided to look into the cost of upgrading our equipment. In the past, I have had laptops die because they couldn’t be upgraded anymore. I didn’t want that to happen again.

I started by calling one provider who had recently been in our area for a quote. They came by the house and talked to us about the costs. To get started would cost us $500 up front. Oh my! Then I stopped by my current provider and posed the same question. Our initial cost would be a little bit less here.

Now mind me, we are still talking about spending about $2500 on phones and tablets. The difference is that my current provider would give me sufficient credit for trading in my current phone to completely cover the cost of the phone we want. We’d still be paying for the tablets but the monthly cost would be considerably less!

Moral of the story is to shop around and don’t be afraid to let your current provider know what you are doing! They might be able to make the deal sweeter.
