Did you know 0870, 0844 and 08 numbers could be costing you or your business hundreds of pounds per year? If you’re calling these numbers from a mobile phone instead of a BT landline, it could be more! Many businesses give out these premium phone numbers as a way to make tens of thousands of pounds through calls to their customer service desks.
There is another way…
Say no to 0870 today!
The truth is that virtually every business will have a FREE number you can call – they just don’t want you to know about it! Quite often, you’ll have more success in getting through to someone to speak with because these numbers are not publically advertised and might go to other, less busy departments.
This website has taken the time to scrape the internet to find alternative numbers to 0870. In general, they provide you with a 01 or 02 number instead, which will be much cheaper or even free to call.
This is particularly useful when calling companies who have many departments and put you on hold for long periods of time, as some of these calls can be very costly.
Here’s another great tip, this time for dealing with spam calls…
If you want to reduce the time spent in dealing with spam callers, do this.
Every time you receive a spam call (the PPI or personal injury ones – you know the sort!) save them to a contact named “Spam”. The next time they ring (and they will!) at least you’ll be able to ignore it without thinking it could be your next big opportunity!
