Everything has pro and cons. For example, a three-year contract with a cable company can be a prison. If it completely sucks, you’re stuck for three years. Even the discount you got for those three years can’t offset the fact that you got a bad deal.
However, a three-year contract can mean security. Say, a certain cable company promises that it won’t keep you on for three years if you don’t want to. No contract, no hassles. But after your one-year discounted promo expires, you’ll pay the regular monthly price plus the cost of all your add-ons. In our case, it was more than twice what we expected. If we had a three-year contract, we’d know how much we’re paying after the promo period is up. No surprises, unless we change something.
