The new app is free and it saves you money!
There is no feeling that is more demoralising than the slow and soul destroying realisation that you have just paid $59 for a one month Australian Financial Review subscription you did not want.
Of course, you wanted it when it was free! In fact, you revelled in the novelty of having top end reading materials during your morning train commute. You haughtily quoted the latest snippets of news on business, finance, investment and politics to your colleagues on your morning coffee run.
But then you forgot that your free trial period only lasted for one month …
Your golden age of pseudo-intellectualism abruptly ended, leaving a crestfallen you with barely enough credit to purchase a compulsory bottle of Chandon for your friend’s 30th birthday this weekend.
The Sting Of Unexpected Subscription Fees
Nobody has the financial capacity to spend their salary on recurring and unused subscriptions to magazines or other apps and services such as Spotify, Netflix, iTunes music, Evernote or gym memberships. Especially when a lot of these charges can be old subscriptions you have forgotten about and which occur without your knowledge.
But checking your credit card bills for monthly accumulating charges is a painful and time-consuming exercise in patience and persistence. The investment of time and energy necessary to chase down and cancel $12 amounts can seem too high. But over time these amounts can add up to $500 over per year.
Luckily somebody in Silicon Valley just automated your worst nightmare. A fancy new app scans your online statements to find paid subscriptions and recurring bills.
All you have to do is:
- Sign up
- Enter your bank or credit card institution. All major Australian banks such as ING Direct, St George, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac as well as credit cards such as 28 Degrees Mastercard are supported.
- That’s it.
TrueBill sends you information on you subscriptions so you know who is charging you every month. A built in one-click cancellation system also allows you to instantly cancel unwanted subscriptions. The best part is that your statements are monitored every month so that any price hikes or unexpected fee changes are flagged and sent to you in a handy report.
Time to start putting that extra cash aside for your next escape!
