Should you find a cheap psychic?
If I live by one mantra, it's "you get what you pay for." But is this true with psychics? Yes and no. Here's why.
Generally speaking, psychics are just very expensive. It's a niche service and there just aren't that many talented psychics. Where there is high demand and low supply, prices rise. For this reason, you're going to pay a pretty penny for a quality reading. Also, most psychics aren't doing a ton of readings, so in order to support themselves, they have to charge a lot. But that doesn't mean you can't get a cheaper reading.
Finding a cheap psychic
Traditionally, people have gone to local psychics with physical locations. These psychics can be expensive - often $100 dollars on the low end. After all, they have to pay rent on their office space. So, if you're someone who wants to be face-to-face with a psychic, you'll have to go this route, but it isn't the best way to get a cheap reading.
The best way to find a cheap, or cheaper psychic, is by getting a phone or online reading with one of the major networks. However, in order to find the cheapest reading, you have to keep a few things in mind. The first thing is that the best online psychics are actually much more expensive than going to a psychic in person. This is because they have the highest demand, so they charge the most to maximize their profits - often as high as $13 a minute! But that doesn't mean you can't get a cheap psychic reading on these networks. Here are few tips to get a cheaper psychic reading:
- Sign up with a network you've never had a reading with. Most of them offer great rates for first-time customers. They usually offer 20/minute readings for $20 dollars and 30 minute readings for $30 dollars.
- Look for psychics who are new to the network. Because they don't have a lot of reviews or feedback yet, they start at the lowest rates - usually at .99 cents a minute. Just because they are cheap doesn't mean they aren't good. They just might be new.
- If you call to sign up, be sure to ask the customer service reps who they recommend. They are signing up people all day long, so they know who their best psychics are.
Oranum is unique in that you are able to get a reading with a psychic via webcam. However, they do not have any special introductory rates. Both California Psychics and AskNow have introductory rates.
Be sure to do your research beforehand in order to find the best psychics for you. Both sites allow you to signup and browse psychics and their ratings.
