In an effort to save a bit of money we are changing from cable to At&t U-verse. Not saving as much as we thought. About $7 a month. But we will get our dvr back. Ever try to save money on something only to discover the savings weren't as much as you thought what was it?

My fiance's parents are changing to timewarner from our local services as we can get a bundle package. However, we are getting DVR so we won't be saving as much. Actually I should say, if they ever get their butts in gear, lol. Time Warner Cable isn't living up to their promises.

Well, $7 bucks in your pockets is $7 more then you would have had.. it is good to save money even if it is only a few dollars. Yes, our cable went up $10 since we have had it and now we pay $49 a month when we decided against getting a Dish Satellite because we thought our cable would be cheaper. But we would be getting more channels with the dish but my husband doesn't want change it even though it is $10 more then expected.

With most things, there are hidden costs you don't expect. If your savings is only $7, then you'd have to be a little skeptical about savings until you see it validated by your first bill. :) "First we test, then we trust." There have been several occasions where savings didn't work out quite as I expected. I think cell phones one time. Or some unlimited long distance calling. More frequently, however, I have a failed attempt to save money when I forget to mail in for rebates or somesuch. (That happens pretty often, really.)

So you mean those commercials where everybody talks trash about how much cable charges are not really true? I guess it is worth it to save $7 and get your DVR back. I have never had DVR. I bet it would be great. I switched insurance once thinking it would be cheaper, but really it wasn't.

$7.00 a month is still a savings. You could place that in a jar with your change every month. I did cut off my cable altogether to save money. It saved me over $60.00 a month not to have cable. But,I also try to find the episodes I want to watch online and can't. But,I will not be getting the cable back under no conditions.
