Of course there is this site where they want you to cut off your cable and switch to Direct TV, http://www.cable-tv.com/. I have been looking at that as an option and of course if you look at it says that for 20 dollars a month you get something called a Select pack for a year, but you are signing up for two years. Like anything else the devil is in the details and if you read the fine print there is going to be a good reason why you would not do it. My Dad showed me that a long time when he was trying to teach me one of those sage lessons about life and so forth. He pointed at some offer and showed me the great big letters that said 20 dollars a month. He said that when you see one thing written in big letters it is supposed to look really good to you, but there is something you do not see that is not going to look as good if you took the time to take a real close look at it.
Of course my Dad had a Little magnifying glass and he got a yellow highlighter and showed me where the math really took you on that offer. It was supposed to be something that I remembered because obviously you are going to have a lot of chances to make mistakes big and small. The sayings go on and on about how you should look before you leap, which is obvious and it means the same thing when it comes to buying a car or any major financial decision. This is a big deal over time. Each month it is 20 dollars, but that adds up. It especially adds up if they start tacking on charges.
