Santa Cruz, CA (WiredPRNews.com) — Today’s families are attempting to save on household expenses more and more each day as they struggle with today’s economy. Everything from laundry detergent to utility bills, family consumers are working to alleviate the strain on their personal finances while maintaining their current level of comfort. This has proven not to be the easiest task for the everyday American however whatever can be done, families are striving to give their savings accounts and wallets a break.One way many U.S. Consumers are working to save on some of their everyday bills is to downgrade from their current cell phone calling plans to less costly monthly calling packages. While the concept may seem simple enough there are some possible pitfalls that can end up costing the average consumer more money in the long run.
TopSavings.Net warns that reducing a calling plan is not always the best plan of action for saving money and advises against the action for most American families. “Unless you are willing to reduce the way you use your cell phone, reducing your plan can end up causing you more harm than good”, states Aaron Siegel, CEO of the online cellular phone and plan sales site.What Siegel is talking about are the overage charges commonly charged to your cell phone bill when going over your monthly minutes. On a national average, a consumer can expect to pay .25 cents and up for every minute used past the monthly alloted amount in a plan. If the overage continues unchecked on a monthly basis, customers can end up paying hundreds and even thousands of dollars annually that they otherwise wouldn’t have needed paying had they stayed on their current plans.Another pitfall to be aware of Aaron warns, are unlimited cell phone Internet plans as well.
If changing to a per minute limited access plan, be aware that the per minute charges can be costly. This can be magnified by slow page loading and occasionally leaving your browser open by accident.Aside from those, some cell phone providers may charge a fee for reducing your plan. It is advised you thoroughly read your contract and discuss over the phone any cancellation fees with your provider before deciding to completely overhaul your calling plan.TopSavings.Net is an online shopping site that offers business and residential wireless calling plans as well as international cell phone products worldwide.
