1-800-FREE-411 provides a great service that eliminates those nasty $1-plus charges when connecting to the business(es) you call about. Hows this possible? Before you get the phone number, you get an ad with special offers from other local, top-rated businesses. Its then up to you to bite at the offer, or proceed to get the phone number.
Anyways, FREE is always good. Its just a matter of having the time to wait for that FREE assistance, or not. A simple way to figure out if this is for you (or not) is by simply asking yourself: “Do I like those pre-movie advertisements?”
