Don't you hate getting the automated phone system run-around from large companies? Do you miss the days when calling a company meant you got to talk to a human? A call to your bank, department store, or device manufacturer nowadays means navigating a glut of automated menus and usually results in zero progress Paul English, CTO of a travel search engine, has created an IVR (interactive voice response) cheat sheet This way, instead of contacting major companies such as American Express, Kodak, or Sears, and navigating through constant automated voicemail menus, you can just dial the listed numbers and talk to an actual human.

Note that the instructions are subject to change Your results using this site for a particular company may vary.
