8 secrets service providers don’t want you to know

Here are eight ways to save that these companies will never tell you.

Bonus: While all of the above companies don’t want you to know how to save money, there is one exception. Israel’s Electric Company is always advertising ways to lower your electric bill. Though don’t be fooled. It’s in their own best interest to keep electricity use in check, to make sure they can keep up with demand. And when reading your electric bill, make sure that the fee is based on an actual reading and not an estimate. If you see estimates for many months in a row, call them and request they check your meter.

In summary, just about everything in Israel is negotiable. You can do this! Don’t forget to make yourself a reminder to call and renew your discount every year.

Which of these do you already do? Which will you start doing now? What other secrets can you share with us?

    Regarding the electric company, if you get overcharged (due to estimate), will you get a refund once they do a meter reading (assuming it’s lower than their estimate)? In the UK you would get a refund in that case and then it’s “just” a timing issue.

      Yes they will correct the bill retroactively. In the start of Covid they gave us a double electric bill the next bill we had a negative charge

    For checking the best prices and deals in any defined search area of the country, the app CHP (the icon has 2 cherries on it) is unbeatable. Highly recommended to use it for shopping. Very versatile.

    I don’t understand why I should be paying a credit card card maintenance fee. It’s frustrating.
