I do bundle my internet and TV services and (really) get $5 off/month. Not a lot but I researched that offer, looking for "tricks", before I signed up for it.

I get your point, however, price is not the bottom line for all of us. I might want to get the Economy TV package with Comcast for $40, sign up with 3.0 mbps DSL service with an independent, local DSL provider that provides great service for $50, and pay Ma Bell $10 for POTS phone service at a per minute rate (a requirement for the independent DSL service), and be very happy with that $100 "bundle" that I made on my own. Someone could tell me that they get way more from Comcast for $100 (HD box extra of course). Myself and I'm sure others on here alike prefer the freedom of making up our own unbundled bundle.

It wasn't for me either. I already had the TV service (for 16+years) when I relocated and had to find a new ISP. Bundling the two was more of a convenience (of only having one bill). The $5 saving was a bonus.

CenturyLink is constantly bombarding me with offers to bundle phone service. Instead I use a MagicJack, which although not perfect, suits my needs at a far lower cost.
