How Alphabuyer Works
1. We negotiate special deals with local suppliers.
We research local suppliers and evaluate their current offerings. Then we negotiate special group deals (e.g. "What kind of deal will you give us if 100 people sign up?") We ask them to waive cancellation fees and other nonsense. Now the deal is on!
2. The more people who sign up, the better the deal gets.
We open the deal up to our customers, and as more people sign up, the deal gets better and better for everyone. We run the deal for a set amount of time, and when time runs out, everyone who signed up gets the best deal reached.
3. Your savings will appear on your regular bill.
Once you sign up and the deal closes, we'll handle the switch to your new supplier. You won't need to do anything else, and there won't be an additional bill for you to worry about. You'll still receive your regular bill, only cheaper! Your existing service provider will still be responsible for maintaining your service, nothing else changes.
4. It's free for you, because suppliers pay us.
Suppliers are eager to sign up big groups of customers, so in addition to giving us the best deals, they also pay us a small commission. This means that our service will always be free for you.
5. We've got your back.
Usually the way it works is this: Customer signs up for great introductory price. Customer forgets all about it. Customer sees price increase dramatically. Customer furrows brow and shrugs shoulders. Not so with Alphabuyer. When it's time to renew, we've got your back. Plus, we monitor your bill for free!
