Sub­scrip­tion ser­vices are handy, but fol­low th­ese tips so you’re not wast­ing money on ser­vices you don’t use…

1 Do I need it?

Make a list of sub­scrip­tions and the cost and de­cide if they’re worth it. Do this ev­ery cou­ple of months. It makes sense to have Net­flix while it’s show­ing your favourite se­ries but, af­ter it ends, why not ditch it un­til there’s some­thing new you want to watch?

2 Deals

Hag­gle to re­duce the cost of your sub­scrip­tions. If they’re on­line, click on the op­tion to can­cel your con­tract and you may be of­fered a good deal to stay. Al­ways take up good of­fers – for ex­am­ple, if you love recipe boxes, shop around to get dis­counts they of­fer to new users. And if your gym mem­ber­ship is costly, join one with less lux­u­ries, but a lower monthly cost.

3 Share the love

Share sub­scrip­tions. Ap­ple Mu­sic’s Fam­ily Plan al­lows up to six peo­ple to stream mu­sic. If there’s a sub­scrip­tion you want – look for ‘rec­om­mend a friend’ of­fers. You and a pal al­ready on it could both ben­e­fit if they re­fer you.
