I saved $456.76 in 5 minutes using an app that finds subscription services

Do you ever look at your monthly bills and wonder where some of those crazy numbers come from?

I’m willing to bet some of those costly digits come from subscriptions you’re signed up for. Do you use all of them enough to justify the expense? That’s money automatically being taken out of your account every month or year.

I have just the solution. My sponsor, Rocket Money, will help you lower those bills.

Try it free for 30 days!

We’ve all heard that one. Sign up for free and you’ll love it! That’s how they get you.

But 30 days is just enough time to forget about a subscription you signed up for. The companies behind that offer are literally banking on it. Before you know it, you’re paying for a subscription you don’t use.

Here are some more things to consider:

  • Many services you pay for have better, cheaper alternatives.
  • You can be tricked into signing up for something without realizing it.

The companies behind these services aren’t going to send you reminders — they love it when their customers blindly pay their bills every month. Imagine that.

I’ve dealt with this problem, but I’m kicking all those unnecessary subscriptions to the curb thanks to Rocket Money.

Savings to the moon

Rocket Money (formerly known as Truebill) is a personal finance app that finds and cancels all your unwanted subscriptions. They can even help negotiate lower rates on the stuff you want to keep.

I review every sponsor myself and only promote things I can stand behind. I had to install the app and try it, of course.

Here are three annual subscriptions Rocket Money helped me find and put a stop to:

  • Paramount+ Premium: $119.88.
  • Max: $191.88.
  • AAA: $145.

I saved a total of $456.76 by just installing the app!

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to save this much. And I’m sure that’s true for most people. It’s easy to forget everything we subscribe to, especially when they’re just a few bucks a month.

Over 3 million people have used Rocket Money, saving an average of up to $720 a year. I saved close to that number in my first 5 minutes of using the app!

Off the top of your head, can you say how much your monthly bills cost? $50? $100? Do you even know how many services you’re subscribed to?
