The Story

Hi there!  We’re John & Jerry.  Two life-long friends who like to share ideas about how to save money.  So John had this domain “gotalkamerica.com” for years. In fact, gotalkamerica.com was once the number one sales portal for Talk America phone service.  A few years ago, John let the site go and tried to sell the domain name but it didn’t sell.  So recently, we decided to bring it back to life as a blog about one of our favorite topics – CUTTING THE CORD TO CABLE TV! In full disclosure, we hope to make some money to support our endeavor, so product reviews may have affiliate links and you may even see a few ads here and there. Heck, if you just wanna give us money, we have no problem with that either!

So that’s the story and here we are, no longer selling Talk America Phone Service, but instead offering up our favorite ways to save money by cutting the cord to cable TV.  Want to suggest a topic? Use the form below to suggest a topic and go talk America!
