The Citizens Utility Board (CUB) is holding a free phone-bill clinic at the Lifescape Senior Expo in Loves Park as part of a campaign to help consumers understand their phone bills and alert them about great ways to cut calling costs.
The bad news is most people are paying too much for phone service; the good news is you can change that, CUB Executive Director David Kolata said. Many people pay for phone features they dont need and plans that dont fit their calling patterns. CUBs clinics can help you cut your phone bills of this unwanted fat.
The clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 20, and Friday, Sept. 21, at Sportscore IIIndoor Sports Center, 8800 E. Riverside Blvd., Loves Park.
At the clinic, which is co-sponsored by state Sen. Dave Syverson and state Sen. Burzynski, consumers will learn CUBs Rules to Live By in the Phone Market to help them avoid paying too much for phone service. Consumers should bring their phone bills so CUB experts can analyze them and give tips about how to save money.
CUB is a nonprofit statewide utility watchdog organization created by the Illinois legislature to represent the interests of residential and small-business utility customers. For more information, call CUBs Consumer Hotline at (800) 669-5566 or visit www.citizensutilityboard.org.
