TruGreen sent me a season billing with a 7% discount if I pay by March 15th.  Previous years has been a 10% season pay discount.  I called in about that.  I was able to negotiate about half my service plan a 25% discount and 10% discount for the rest of the service plan plus the 7% season pay discount.  I made no threats to change companies.  I did not even mention I have been their customer for a few seasons.  I just asked what they could do to entice me to pay now.   Needless to say YMMV depending on the agent on the phone.

I used the Fidelity Visa managed by Elan under a targeted offer.  Sock Drawer card.  This billing gets a Visa 2% rebate on everything and fulfills the targeted offer amount. Everything else to the end of April gets 3% on everything during the targeted time in the offer.

Do they actually do anything over and above the generic 2-4D spraying in Spring and fall?
They claim to provide "customized service tailored to my lawn" or something but all I ever see them doing to my neighbors is spraying. I usually spray myself, but am considering signing up.

  The basic service gets you spraying.  Want aeration?  That'll cost ya.  Need treatment for anything besides grass?  That'll cost ya.
