Pleasant Surprise On My Bills This Month

When I went to pay the power bill this month I noticed something that made me take a double take and then smile. It was $2 less than it has been for the last several years. This is a good thing. Even just being $2 less is exciting. We are on level pay and so to get a reduction of any amount is really nice and pleasant surprise. Have you gotten a pleasant surprise on your bills lately?

@poehere ......Only happens about once a year. Level pay so it will remain that amount.

Hey, that's great! I qualified for a break in my electric bill this month so a lower amount was something I was thrilled to see. Two dollars less is a good reason to smile!

Yes, it is. Especially when level pay usually goes up, not down.

My light bill went down 15 bucks. And with me not using lights at night. I am looking forward to the next bill.

Yes but it's the other way around. Much higher! It really is good to know there was a reduction in your bill. I would love to have a reduction in mine even if it's just a small amount. It does matter!

It was nice. Ours is level pay so usually it goes up if there is any change. Quite a surprise to have it go down any.

Mine was more like a shock! I got a letter from the Housing Authority and my rent has gone down! When I wrote my rent check out today, I was actually smiling!

Mine was lower last month but we had to have the air on so not sure how much it will be next month.

That is great. I am always trying to find ways to cut back on my utility bills. My electric bill is going down now that it is cooling off.

I was very pleasantly surprised. Doesn't happen often. Usually we get a notice that it has gone up not down.

Our electric bill is a different amount monthly. The only surprise is if it will be less for this month since its been much cooler than normal.

I bet it will be lower then. Ours is level pay so it's the same each month. Get it lowered is a act of congress. Higher is usually the way it goes.

@celticeagle I could go on the plan where you pay the same amount every month but I like the early spring and fall months when the bills are so LoW!

@AbbyGreenhill ......And I like having it the same each month. So it is something that each person or household has their own preferences.

Last month's electric bill was lower than I expected..but since we had that heat wave last month..this month's is likely not going to be pretty!

nice to save money unexpectedly - not happened to me for a while though one of my minor debts is almost paid off which mean I'll have a little more money each month soon

My phone bill was paid out of my account. Instead of taking out $49 as per usual, the took out $45. It was a good surprise that was unexpected.

Interesting. Hope they don't take out the other $4 when you don't have it available.
