Frequently Asked Questions
How does this service work?
After entering your address, you will be presented with all of the providers in a service category (such as Television or Phone). If the category is not the service that you are looking for, you can navigate to other categories by using the tabs on the top navigation. Once you have selected a service category, click Details and Pricing next to the provider (such as AT&T or Comcast) you want to learn more about or compare providers by checking the box next to each of the packages or offers you want to consider (up to three at a time) and click the Continue button. After you have reviewed their offerings, click the Continue button that relates to the service provider whose services you would like to purchase. Finally, complete the order form with all the required information that the service provider needs to give you service. Click the Order button and your order will then be sent directly to the service provider. Later, check your My Orders page for the status of your orders.
What does "Best Price Guarantee" mean?
Our Best Price Guarantee means that you will receive the best price that each of our participating service providers offers (online or otherwise) for a product or service at your particular location. You may actually receive a better price for many products and services through this site than otherwise available because of the special discounts many of our service providers offer to our users. Click the Best Price Guarantee link at the bottom of any page for complete details.
Who is responsible for providing the services and products that I order?
All purchases through this site are directly between you and the service providers that you choose, just as if you used the telephone to contact them directly. We are enabling your connection with the service providers and are not providing any of the services, nor are we responsible for any action or failure on the part of any service provider. Any questions or comments relating to the quality of the service you receive from a service provider should go directly to that service provider.
May I use different payment methods for different services?
The payment options available to you are set by the service providers. Often you have the option of paying with credit card, electronic funds transfer or check.
Are my credit card number and other personal information secure on this site?
This site uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Private Communication Technology security standards that are supported by Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 and Netscape 4.0 or later. SSL encodes your personal information (such as your password, address, phone number and your credit card number) so that such information cannot be read while traveling over the Internet. This encryption makes doing business over the Internet more secure than making a purchase by telephone. Our Privacy and Security Statement provides greater detail about our commitment to your privacy and security.
What is the "Credit Card Security Guarantee"?
We are committed to protecting your credit card security, and we guarantee the safety of your credit card information. Our Credit Card Security Guarantee means that if fraudulent charges are ever made to your card as a result of credit card information stolen from our servers or while en route to one of our service providers, we will reimburse you for the amount of those fraudulent charges for which you are legally responsible. Click the Credit Card Security Guarantee link at the bottom of any page for complete details.
