And I thought this was a thing of the past. I was just reading how there are so many people who have an old AOL dial-up account despite the fact that they are signed up with another provider that gives them faster Internet connection. The main reason was that they have had it for so long that they might as well keep it incase they need it and that it just feels like a normal part of the bill for all those years. I would think that there are enough options nowadays to transfer all of your account info if necessary and such too if that is the concern.
I think for most people a more common item that would kind of fall under this category is a magazine subscription of some sort. Maybe it has to do more about change in general as a lot of people dislike that right? A little here and there can add up.
