Three ways to... GET ETTHEMOTHE MOST FROM SUBSCRIPTIONS
Our O consumer lifestyle if team are here to make your money go further
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?
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.
