Going on vacation? Put your services on vacation too!

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

I found this article from SmartMoney linked off of Yahoo, and thought I would share. It is one of the few items I’ve seen recently that I didn’t already know. Apparently several service providers for cable, internet, and phone service will allow you to suspend your service while on vacation. Policies vary widely, but if you aren’t there to use the service at least you can avoid paying for it. For instance, DirecTV will allow you to suspend service from one week up to nine months without a charge, and T-Mobile will allow you to put your plan on hold for up to 90 days (no charge for holds less than 30 days, afterwards $10 per month).

Seems like pretty easy savings for a phone call to customer service.
