Citizens Utility Board Coming to Libertyville Civic Center

Need help lowering your phone bills?

The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) is coming to Libertyville to give consumers tips on how to cut their calling costs by hundreds of dollars a year.

A CUB study has estimated that Illinois callers could be overpaying by more than $1 billion a year—but most could enjoy big savings by making a few simple changes on their phone bills. CUB has shown phone customers how to save millions of dollars through an award-winning website, www.CitizensUtilityBoard.org, and free clinics that give tips on how to slash local and long-distance bills.

The next clinic, co-sponsored by state Sen. Dan Duffy, is:

                       10 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 21  

                       

                       135 W. Church St.

Note: Please RSVP by calling Sen. Duffy’s office, 847-277-7100.

“When it comes to your phone bill, knowledge is power,” CUB Executive Director David Kolata said. “Armed with a little information from CUB’s experts, consumers can cut their bills by an average of $200 a year. It’s savings without sacrifice.”

Consumers frequently complain that they can’t get reliable information from the phone company, which often just throws them a sales pitch for a more expensive plan. At CUB’s clinics, however, participants will receive helpful tips about:

* The low-cost Consumer’s Choice local-calling plans, designed by CUB under a legal settlement with AT&T. The plans are under a state-mandated price freeze through at least June of 2013 and have been saving Illinois consumers an average of about $200 a year.
