It's not that a person can't afford it, nor is it about feeling entitled. They don't owe me a discount, nobody here is saying they do. It's about not paying more for something than you really have to. I look for discounts in all things. Paying more than you have to for anything is just stupid and I would do the same even if I won the lottery.
When I signed up for direct tv I knew i'd never pay full price for the service because full price, I feel, is ridiculous. Yes, I can afford it. At the end of my 2 years of discounts i'll call them up and they'll either offer me the discounts I want or i'll cancel. No hard feelings. They don't owe me. But as a consumer I do have a right to make a decision about the value of goods and services and what i'm willing to pay. I'm willing to pay the lower price they offered me for 24 months but not the regular price. I accepted the price and felt it had value for that 24 month period.
