Since we are a military family I think it kind of goes without saying that we move-A LOT. With these moves comes the setting up of our basic necessities-water, electricity and in my husband's opinion-Digital TV with HD, DVR and Premium channels.
Yes for as much as I am a "frugalista" TV is one place where we DO spend.
Fortunately for us we are lucky enough to get the new customer promo deals for TV programming pretty much everywhere we go. And one of the companies we have had in the past is Charter Communications. And we liked them, if we moved somewhere where they were available again we would probably get their services. Now Charter is reaching out to the community and giving away 50 laptops to 2 lucky schools!!
Here is a little bio about Charter Communications from their Website:
"Charter Communications, Inc. is a Fortune 500 company and the fourth-largest cable operator in the United States. Charter provides advanced video, high-speed Internet, and telephone services to approximately 5.5 million residential and business customers in 27 states.has always had great promotions to reward customers and those looking to sign up for Charter service."
Here is the information on the Community Outreaching that Charter is conducting now (from the Charter website):
"In the past they've given away a hybrid car, a Camaro, an HDTV-A-Day for an entire month, free laptops, XBox 360's and more. This time, Charter is giving back to the community. Charter wants your favorite school to start smart this fall with 50 new laptops! As part of Charter’s back-to-school campaign, they are giving these 50 laptops away to two schools. The laptops are Lenovo G555's with a 15.6" screen, 160GB drive and 3GB ram (with a Targus bag)"
