Cutting Cable and Free Cell Phone Service Helps You Save


Have you ever looked at how much your spending each month on cable TV?  Have you ever started out with an introductory offer only to forget about when the price increased?  The average cable TV bill cost $86 each month; this comes out to $1032 a year. 

Did you know that you can get most of your network TV channels for free through your TV already with an antenna?  You can often times get a TV antenna for less than $30 and you still get all the main TV channels and shows you have come to love.


Another great way to save money is to apply for free phone service through the Budget Mobile LifeLine cell phone program that includes a free government cell phone and free calls, texts, and in some cases, free data. 

To qualify for a free phone including free phone service through the Budget Mobile LifeLine Plan, there can only be one person per household using the government LifeLine Plan.  Applicants must also qualify by participating in one or more of the popular government financial assistance programs such as food stamps (SNAP), Medicaid, and other programs listed here. Applicants may also qualify based on Income levels determined by each state.
