This company really believes in show-don’t-tell. Fancy Hands, a company I’ve sung the praises of, is continuing its offer to negotiate a lower rate with your cable bill–for free.
I tried it and I wasn’t able to get a discount (because I just started a new cable plan and I’m at a really low rate), but they did negotiate a year of HBO for free.
I use Fancy Hands pretty often–especially when I don’t want to wait on hold. If you prefer to speak to agents yourself, you can have them patch you in once they reach an agent.
You can see how long they waited on the phone in a task record. They waited for an hour and a half on hold with Priceline for me today.
I’d also like to give away three of my Fancy Hands tasks–that is, three people can use Fancy Hands to do a task they don’t want to do themselves. This is not sponsored by Fancy Hands and would be coming out of my own account.
You could make Fancy Hands wait on hold, cancel a newspaper subscription, price out flights, and more. If you do win a task and don’t get the response you want from them, you can always push back with feedback about how it went. I’ve never had them not re-do a task for me that I wasn’t happy with.
But how do you win?
To win a free task from Fancy Hands, leave a comment telling me your most frustrating experience. The kind of experience you wished you had someone to help you with.
I’ll choose three winners from the comments. Contest closes at 12 noon Saturday, Eastern time.
