DFW Dallas Fort Worth
Metroplex Area

Electricity

If you are in an area of choice, there are probably 100s of electricity providers you can choose from.  Over and over I have found Stream Energy by Ignite to be least expensive electric providers in the DFW area.   Just click on the logo to be connected to our site and sign up for service online.   We service most areas of the Metroplex, but not all.   We have found that signing up for a specific time frame gives our family the best prices.  Usually this has been a one year contract.  Click on the link below and then on Enroll for Service.  If you are GREEN, check out the Clean and Green plans.  If you are moving within the Metroplex and still using companies like TXU or Reliant, you are likely paying way too much for the same service.  I've seen people paying 2-3x Streams great rates.

Stream Energy by Ignite
Other common companies are:
CoServ 940-321-7800
Oncor  1-888-313-6862
TXU 1-888-608-0033
Reliant 1-866-222-7100

Water, Sewer, Trash, Recycling

You will need to check with the city where you live.
Addison, Arlington, Aubrey, Bartonville, Bedford, Carrollton, Coppell, Copper Canyon, Corinth, Dallas, Denton, Euless, Flower Mound, Frisco, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, Grapevine, Hickory Creek, Highland Park, Hurst, Irving, Keller, Lake Dallas,  Lantana, Lewisville, Little Elm, Mansfield, Murphy,  North Richland Hills, Plano, Richardson, Richland Hills, Roanoke, Sachse, Southlake, Trophy Club, University Park, Watauga.
Normally when you sign up for Water service, they will automatically set you up for sewer and trash service as well.  Be sure to ask them about the city recycling programs.  Some want you to sign up online and some want you to show up in person.  Be sure to take your contract or lease with you if you have to go in person.

Internet

Verizon FIOS is now Frontier Communications 1-877-694-9787 and available in many areas. If Verizon/Frontier does not service your area, check out your local cable company like  Comcast and Time Warner and AT&T at 1-888-774-7153 for UVerse in some areas.   Google is rumored to be installing Fiber and may be available soon.

Gas

Unfortunately you don't get to pick your Natural Gas service provider.   There's only one for each city or area at this time.  If you are in Dallas or Tarrant County, call Atmos first.   If they are not the right provider they can probably recommend the right one.  If you move to Denton County call CoServ first.

Atmos             1-888-286-6700
TXU                 1-800-818-6132
CoServ           1-800-274-4014

Mobile - Cell Phone Service

If you haven't switched companies or checked prices in a while, check out Stream Wireless for some great phones and prices. You might also try Republic Wireless that have plans starting at $5/month and $25/month for unlimited service.  If you are off contract and need a nice GSM phone check out the MotoG.  Then choose your carrier and pop in their SIM card.  You might also try Google devices on the Play Store.  You might also see if FreedomPop will work for you.
Consumer Cellular has a great reputation and some great plans so check them out too.
I recently switched to
Google Project Fi and that saved me a lot of money.
If you have an 800 number or need one and need to reduce the monthly expense? Check out Kall8.

Phone

Typically it is best to bundle with your internet service.  Check out:
Stream Digitial Voice
AT&T 1-866-912-8216
Century Tel 940-321-1000

DISH Network

Dish Network Top Banner

I've always thought DISH Network offers a great product.  Call 866-943-8607 to sign up for service TODAY.

Mail

You should probably visit your local post office and fill out their change of address card in the office, but you can also check out   USPS  online.  If you have a community mailbox the post office will provide you a key.   Even if you get a key from the previous owner, it will likely change the day they put in the notice to change their mail.  Every post office is different.  Some will replace for you at no charge, others want you to buy the lock and have them replace it.  You can order a replacement lock from Amazon.

Security

ADT Free $850 Security System

My favorite local security company is SmithThompson 972-393-2000.  Approximately $16.95/month, no contract, and they also have wireless solutions if you don't have a phone line installed.  I set off lots of alarms in my business and notice they're one of the few who call and call quickly.  There are other great national companies around like ADT.   Call 1-866-940-2526 to get connected to ADT.  Brinks and Broadview are now ADT.  If you are a do it yourselfer and can handle some basic installation, check out SimpliSafe at $14.99/month.

Pest Control

Alterra 972-245-7378.   They service my personal home and if you schedule a one year service plan with them and let me know about it we can both get $30 off the price.  Schedule with them first and then let me know so I can arrange the discount.

Fitness Clubs

Call me at 214-675-6992 and I'll see what I can do for you on fitness clubs.  We have great contacts at Larry North and Texas Family Fitness.   Occasionally Texas Family has run special as low as $7 or $8/month.

Transportation

If you haven't signed up for UBER, you'll love the service.   Use the referral code TeamLynn to get a discount ride.
