Hi, I'm Tom. I'm a Bill Negotiator.
Are you overpaying for cable TV, internet, and cell phone service? I help make sure you’re not, by reviewing and negotiating your bills for you.
How I can help youIt’s my job to cut through the bullsh** that comes along with being overcharged on your cable, cell phone, and internet plans. I find you savings, and eliminate for you long hold times and unhelpful service reps. I can help you by:
The process starts by sending me a copy of your most recent statement for each bill you’d like to lower, along with some basic information. I’ll take a look to see where you can save, and where you’re overpaying.
To get you the most savings, I may have some questions for you. Typical questions cover usage, equipment, and a few others if your provider offers military, employer, or other discounts.
Hi, my name is Tom Beem and I created and run bills180.com. A bill negotiation service based out of Baltimore, Maryland.
If you’re anything like me, you love your family, you love sports, you love your pets (mine is a 2 year old Great Dane named Kona), and being able to do the things that you love most.
The reason I launched this service is because three years ago I really started to analyze my spending. In particular, my cable bill (Comcast). What I found, was a bill that was out-of-control, and not anything like what I signed up for. I found the rate had steadily increased over time, and noticed a similar pattern with many of my other bills. I was hopeful it would be easy to renegotiation my bills, but it took quite a bit of work.
That’s why I’m here, because I want to make it easy for you to lower your bills. By taking what I’ve learned, you won’t have to go through the same hurdles or spend all the time I have figuring out the best way to negotiate with your providers.
If think you may be overpaying, and want some help; please connect with me. Upload your bills(s), email me, or use the contact form to drop me a line or ask a questions.
FAQ'sBelow are my most common questions. Please feel comfortable calling / emailing me with your specific questions – don’t be shy. Email is best, as I may be on the line with a provider when you call. Email me: [email protected] or use the contact form below.
What is Bills 180?
Bllls180 is a bill negotiation service dedicated to helping others negotiate better rates on their recurring monthly bills. Everything here is run by me, Tom Beem. I answer all the emails, answer all the calls, organize the website (which is an ongoing process), and do all of the negotiating.
How does it work?
As stated above, the process is simple and risk-free. You send me your bills to look at. I’ll assess if your overpaying, and where you can save money. I’ll likely ask you a few questions. Then I call your provider (on your behalf) to negotiate a better rate. If i’m successful, you share 35% of the first years savings with me. This is how I make my living.
Will you extend my contract?
I will never extend or change your contract without your permission. In general, I’m against all contracts, as they are only there to limit consumers and their options. Only in some cases, do they make sense. An example is when you can get all new equipment / phones for $0, with new contract. Then it makes sense.
What bills do you negotiate?
I work on cable TV, cell phone, and internet bills. I negotiate again such providers as: Comcast, DirecTv, Verizon, Sprint, Time Warner Cable, Dish, At&T, and others. If you’re not sure about your bill, email me at [email protected] or use the contact boxes below. About half the bills I currently receive are from Comcast.
How much does it cost?
My fee is 35% of the first years savings. Once your bill is lowered, I’ll email you an invoice. My fee is due all at once, and due within 7 days of receiving your invoice. If I am not successful in finding savings – there is no cost to you. Example: if I negotiate a $23 monthly discount on your bill, you should expect an invoice for $96.
How long does it take?
Once I receive a bill(s), you’ll hear from me in 1-3 days. After I have all the information I need to negotiate for you, I hope to have everything wrapped up in a week, but sometimes two weeks (dependant on volume).
Can't I just do this all myself?
You sure can! And I want to help you be successful in lowering your bills. Some basic tips are: talk only to the retention team, have competitor info handy, be super-nice, don’t accept their first offer, and call back another time if you’re not getting fair pricing. Also, compare plans at WhistleOut, and check out my blog for more tips and tricks.
Of course, if you don’t want all the hassle, drop me a line.
