I love to find online and in-store deals before buying anything, and I often brag to my friends that I never buy anything for its full price. Finding deals has become my hobby. It all started when I saw a Quidco advertisement at Leytonstone Station, on my way home from work.
I left Virgin Media for Sky to save £720, even though Virgin Media paid me £224 to settle a complaint. Why and how did I do it? I have been a Virgin Media customer for over seven years. My flatmates and I are all heavy broadband users, So we really loved VM’s fibre-optic broadband, and we stayed with the company despite the bill going up on a yearly basis.
I have no shame admitting that a few years ago I was paying for two monthly phone contracts. I wanted to use both Android and iOS phones, so I was paying around £80 per month. I don’t smoke and I didn’t have a takeaway coffee habit, so I was kind of justifying paying for the luxury.
