One thing I was not looking forward to regarding our upcoming move was calling all the different companies to set up utilities, internet, phone, newspaper, etc. I can’t stand wasting my time on hold, waiting for the next available representative. To solve this problem I asked my husband to call and waste his day off on hold.
But, he had a trick up his sleeve that I didn’t know about. It is called Get Human, and it is a website that has information for over a thousand businesses. Information on how to beat the annoying circle of elevator music and automated voices. Just go to their site and type in the business you are trying to contact. It will give you the information that allows you to get a human quicker than going through the normal channels.
For example, trying to get a hold of AT&T call 800-288-2747 then press 0 at each prompt, ignoring messages. How about Amazon.com? Dial 800-201-7575 then don’t press or say anything.
My husband used this today and saved a good amount of time, bypassing much of the hold system. Next time you need to call customer service give Get Human a try.
