How many times have you passed up an opportunity to save money because you dread waiting on hold? I’ve got my hand raised (darn Time Warner bill.)
Well now you can save time – and money – more easily with GetHuman.com. This Web site is one huge list of corporate phone numbers and tips to get to a customer service representative immediately. I tested out three numbers with mixed results.
Call No. 1: Abercrombie & Fitch
I followed their directions and got a person on the line within 15 seconds!
Call No. 2: AT&T Wireless
Used their tip and within 30 seconds got a customer service agent who helped me switch the primary line on our family plan from my number to Hubby’s number.
Call No. 3: Fidelity
I sat on hold for 6 minutes and 30 seconds before giving up. To be fair, the entire time I was in the queue for a real person and it is the start of a holiday weekend. But still.
