Talk @ The 2015 Yale Customer Insights Conference

Unfortunately, I needed to cancel my attendance.

I’m going to talk about equal billing plans and how we find that customers not only prefer to overpay to receive a refund later but how refund-customers are also more satisfied with their service providers, less price aware, and less likely to switch their providers.
