How to Lower Your Vivint Bill

Paying more than you should for Vivint? Learn about options to reduce your bill

Have you noticed your home security bill from Vivint increasing over the last few months? 

Maybe you are just unable to keep your normal home security service. Whatever the case, you might be looking for ways to reduce your bill and keep some of your services or all of your services. But if you have this or one of many other common Vivint complaints, you have many options at your disposal.

Review Your Vivint Bill

Your bill can be difficult to understand, but knowing how to read your bill from Vivint Home Security is the first place to start. 

Here is where you can look for: 

  • The full month of service which you get charged in advance
  • Any activation fees or equipment fees
  • Taxes
  • Insurance
  • Discounts

It’s important to review your bill just to make sure that everything is correct. There might be unauthorized charges on your bill which is why it suddenly got higher one month, or there might be a charge that you didn’t agree to which can happen when a representative promises a promotional rate but forgets to follow through. If you are owed a credit or promotion from the company, that might not show up on your next bill which is why it’s higher than it should be.

At FairShake we have dealt with many customer complaints just like these. In any of these cases you want to reach out to customer service to rectify the issue immediately. Checking your bill so thoroughly, every month, can help you catch these errors every time.

Reduce Services and Negotiate with Customer Service

If everything on your bill looks correct, then another option is to reduce your services or try and negotiate with customer service to get a lower rate on the services you already have.

Note:  If you are under contract currently with Vivint, there might be early cancellation fees should you choose to reduce some of your services or cancel your services. For this reason it is always best to try and negotiate with customer service to get a more affordable rate before you cancel the service.

Contact customer service but be polite about it. Let them know that you are having financial difficulties or you are thinking of changing to a more affordable company. Big corporations have customer retention departments and their job is to keep you as a loyal customer by offering you discounts or giving you promotions that may or may not be listed to the public.

It never hurts to ask if there are ways that you can reduce your service, if there are things a customer service representative can do to cut your costs or even add free services. Sometimes all it takes is you calling and asking for them to offer something.
