Save $$$ Dumping cable and Using TiVo

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

I hate bills coming in the mail with a passion. I hate paying monthly bills and try to reduce the number that I get each month. I only have 1 credit card so I only get one bill in the mail for that. I have to pay for gas and electricity, but I don't have to pay for TV. I am the type of person who thinks ahead and you really have to think ahead with this. Some people are happy paying $13 (not sure the exact price) a month for their TiVo service thinking it is a lot cheaper than the $300-$400 you pay for lifetime service. But what about 2-3 years from now when the amount they have paid is equal to $300-$400 and they could be paying nothing if they had just bought the lifetime service? So if you are the type of person who thinks ahead this deal is for you!

I was just emailed this promotion and thought I would pass it along. It is a great deal! If you are looking to get rid of cable or satellite TV and save $60-$100 a month, or whatever you are paying, this is for you!

Get TiVo and dump your cable. You will never miss it, I promise. You can subscribe to Netflix and get tons of movies and TV shows for $8 a month. You can also rent movies from your TiVo and tons of other cool features that will have you wondering why you have been paying for cable. I do not get paid to advertise for TiVo, I just love it. I researched every system out there very thoroughly before deciding that TiVo was the best deal around.

  1. Our cable comes with our appartment. But when we move on, Tivo is a great idea.

    I LOVE Netflix!!!!!

  2. What a great post! I love saving a buck or two in any way I can. Your post is really helpful!

    I am stopping by from SITS and wanted to welcome you to the SITStahood! So glad to have you!!!


  3. I with you on the cheap TV thing. We just use the digital converter box and we are able to get the main channels. It's free and I love it that way!! I don't think I could ever go back to Paying for TV again. Yes it does feel kind of cheesy to have the ol rabbit ears, but it's something I can live with!

  4. Just dropping by to welcome you to SITS!

    When we move, we will not have cable and we will only use the tv for video games or movies. I am going to check into the tivo/netflix thing. Do they work together (as in, i don't have to buy the netflix box if i have a tivo box?)

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thatnks for this post. We've scaled back out cable package but it still seems like a lot of money. I'll look into this further.

  6. Hi Jen! I just found your blog and I love it. I also love your philosophy when it comes to all things related to being a SAHM. Please stop by for a visit when you get the chance. I'm in desperate need of a new post - hopefully tonite. Take care! Kim

  7. I LOVE my tivo!
