Most of us pay for channels to watch one or two favorites, access HBOs rich movie catalog every once in a full moon and have an additional subscription for the kids…right? But when there is more than one provider, things can get expensive pretty fast..
Way back we used to simply stream our favorite shows online when we didn’t want to pay for full subscriptions on channels you don’t watch; but TV and cable companies caught on and the game is completely different.
On top of the mentioned above, there is your favorite read, music you love, video games and apps. Every bit of content you consume has its own service bill which eventually adds up…
Nowadays, major credit card companies, such as Mastercard, have a policy requiring service providers to get their client’s approval once their trial ends and before their billing cycle starts. As most of us would miss a free trial converting onto another monthly payment or a small bump in subscription plans here are a few tips and tricks:
– Reminders. Set a reminder to cancel free trial periods… If you do not have the time to review monthly bills, set a reminder to review your monthly bills periodically.
– Charge them all from one credit card to ease tracking. Also, set one email address to receive monthly bills in one place.
– There are apps such as TrackMySubs, Truebill, or Mint to do the work for you and send you alerts.
– Manage all subscriptions on iOS or Android for easy tracking (and subscription cancellation).
– Fund these subscriptions with passive income…. This is where PiggyBox comes in!
