Last week I received 2 bills from a recent and unfortunate hospital stay. $1177 due in 2 weeks, ugh.
Today, my husband called this hospital and asked for a discount! Surprisingly, they were happy to oblige and needed no reason or sob story. On one bill we received 20% off and on the other 15% off. However, we did have to pay immediately but put both charges on our credit card, which earns us airline miles so at least there is that bonus! The 2 discounts came to $215 so instead of my original $1177, I will be paying $962.
It just goes to show that it never hurts to ask for a discount, even in unexpected places!! Great job, husband!
