Consumer Savings Tips

If the thought of calling up a provider or hospital to negotiate your bills makes your brain hurt, it’s time to get help. Here are three tech tools that do all the tedious work for you while saving you big bucks. You’re welcome.

1. Is your cable bill through the roof? Check out BillCutterz.com. They will contact cable companies and other tedious providers to help reduce the cost of your monthly bills, taking 50% of whatever savings they’re able to snag for you, and nothing if they can’t make a deal.

2. Memberships and subscription services are a convenient way to pay for goods and services, but the set-it-and-forget format can be troublesome. It’s easy to overlook free trial expiration dates until you get charged, but these fees often go unnoticed.  If you aren’t receiving value from your monthly subscriptions, it’s time to cancel and save yourself some money.  Get help managing these accounts with Trim, a service which helps consumers identify and cancel subscriptions they no longer need or use.

3. Did you know that 8 out of 10 medical bills contain errors? Yeah, neither did I. Since medical bills are so confusing to break down, contact CoPatient.com. They will review your medical bills and provide you with a summary of their findings, giving you the option to negotiate any errors on your behalf for a percentage of the savings.

4. Many retailers offer price adjustments for items that go on sale after you buy them, but who has time to keep track of price drops? This is where Paribus comes in. They monitor prices of purchases linked to your email account and request price adjustments for anything that goes on sale within the store’s price adjustment window. They, too, take a cut of the money you get back, but it’s worth it!
