Saving on Subscription Service Costs
The cost of subscription services can be pricey over time, especially if you have more than one or forget about them over time.
Ways to Save on Your Subscription Services
- Take advantage of free trials. They may be as short as one week or up to 30 days. But don’t forget to cancel if the subscription doesn’t retain it's value!
- Search for coupons. Many subscription services may offer coupons that reduce the cost. Visit the service’s website for recurring deals.
- Negotiate. Let customer service know you love the service, but are looking to simplify your expenses. Often this will escalate your account to “client retention” where you may be offered amazing discounts.
Don’t Subscribe - The fact is, that subscription services aren’t a necessity for many Americans. It may seem difficult to go without your latest delivery but many of these services can be found for cheaper or free, if you’re willing to go without the convenience of delivery.
It can be difficult to measure how these costs add up over time. If you have any questions about how to keep a better eye on your day-to-day finances talk to your financial professional for even more insight.
