It pays to talk

I got a call from BT earlier this afternoon, trying to persuade me to take their broadband and phone call package. They offered a deal just over £4 a month less than I'm paying Virgin at the moment. I asked BT man to call me back later, and went online to check the packages offered.
I then called Virgin and told them about BT's offer, and they promptly made me a lower one. BT declined to go lower than that, so I'll be sticking with the same company I currently use - and the same email address, thankfully - but will be paying £6.50 less per month.

Win !

For "declined" read "were specifically prohibited from doing so as a matter of regulatory compliance". For whatever it's worth. :)

Much win. H'm, I wonder if I could work the same swizz the other way around?

Good work! I used that method to get a dishwasher price right down once.
