Re: seasonal billing for snowbirds

There's an 800 number for the seasonal plan -- got this today from live chat:  For temporary suspension of service, you would need to contact our Seasonal Plan department at 1-800-934-6489 M-F (8:00AM - 8:00PM) and Sat (8:00AM - 5:00PM)Eastern time.

Re: seasonal billing for snowbirds

The seasonal suspend option is available as an alternative to either disconnecting your service, or paying full price when you will be away for an extended period of time.

The seasonal suspend is for a minimum of 60 days, and a maximum of 6 months, and you can put your account into seasonal status once every calander year.

Pricing will vary by region, but to give you a general idea, my region(Michigan/Indiana) the services drop down to $10 each, and there are no box/modem fees.

 

While in seasonal, you will only receive a black screen on your tvs

You will have no Internet connection, but you can still log in with your Comcast user name, and send/receive emails.

Phone service will still have a dial tone, and you can call local numbers w/o a charge.  For long distance there is a $0.05 per minute charge.  And of course 911 service is always active.

You would have to call the 1-800-Comcast number.

The limitations in our computer system are that we can only enter the seasonal suspend order a month in advance.

Also, if you are going to return earlier than your scheduled restart time, give us a call at least 24 hours in advance to get your service turned on.

Re: seasonal billing for snowbirds

we will be moving to an area where COMCAST is not available. Can we use the snow bird option so we can access our email until we get a new provider?

Re: seasonal billing for snowbirds

Is there a seasonal billing option available for Minnesota subscribers? We are planning on being in Florida for several months and would like to put our service in Minnesota on hold while we are away.

We have been trying to go to comcast billing to get the information on vacation /snowbird mode  here in northern new jersey for the coming season.  we plan to go,  as we have for the last 20 years to Florida  and have to put our services on hold modes unti we return to NJ in the spring.  Every year it is a different story.   speaking to  a rep. just now   was told that i would have to pay close to $100.00  as there is no seasonal/snowbird mode here.  I only need to have the phone on (modem included) AS WE HAVE A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM   .Both the TV and the internet are not used or needed.  We turn in 2 DVR boxes to save on that charge, so for all intents and purposes there is no access  and no one in the house to watch it anyway.   Yet we cannot get a

decent reduced rate for the  time we are not here.

  While in Florida we have Comcast services for all triple play  as well and do not have this problem/issue   of  billing.

I would really appreciate an answere to this recurring dilemma that we face.

Respectfully,

Re: seasonal billing for snowbirds

I talked with April of customer service this morning to also put my cable and internet service on seasonal hold.  I was informed that I could not put cable only on hold and keep the internet active.  Tthat was there policy on any type of holds.  

 

She came up with a plan to reduce my cable to basic service and lower the control box charges to the bare minimum, as we have HD boxes.   She also asked if I wanted the speeds reduced on the internet.  I told her no on the reduction of speed on the internet, but yes to all the other suggestions.  (We need the internet speed for other applications in our house.)  All in all this will save me close to $100 per month.  She even said any issue can get resolved with some effort.  And she did give it all in her effort to help me out.  Kudos to April.

 

I suggest you contact Xfinity ccustomer service to see if this can be done for you as well.

 

Good luck!

Re: seasonal billing for snowbirds

Thanks for the reply   but it seems that there is also a problem associated with the location we are in.  Why it is different in some areas and not others i have no idea.  Will keep trying to get thi rate down    as it is ridiculous to pay for not being or using the ervice or equipment.
