    These are some great tips you provided. Since I just found your site a couple days ago, year old posts are just as good as brand new stuff (since they are brand new to me).

    On the note about monitoring your credit card awards, we had a similar situation with our cable company a while back. We were supposed to have a 6 month promo rate for cable internet, but they jacked us up the regular rate after 2 or 3 months. A quick phone call got it resolved and saved us $50-60.
