Do you get tired of paying monthly on too many accounts? Maybe you have subscription fatigue.
Are you tired of paying inflated subscription fees? Many people are. Not only are we paying more monthly bills, they are all going up! There are alternatives to subscription fees, but prevention is better than cure. Here are a few tips:
The value of a subscription
It’s no secret that the value of subscription fees is declining. However, despite the fact that subscription fees remain a popular way to get your favorite entertainment, people are starting to realize just how much they are paying. How many streaming channels did you sign up for during covid. Now that you’ve binged all the shows, how many do you really use? I mean is it worth paying for several months to eventually maybe possibly get another season of Ted Lasso or Acapulco? Apps like Truebill will help you find the services you don’t use anymore.
While many subscription companies offer month-to-month options, some like cell phone bills lock you into an annual contract. The way to avoid this is buy the phone up front. The benefits of this model are obvious to the company, but it’s not always the best deal for the consumer like you.
Alternatives to subscription fees
Subscription services are plentiful in today’s world, and while a monthly box of makeup from Sephora might be fun and inexpensive, the costs quickly add up. Subscription services are there to hook people into subscribing and making their lives easier, but if the monthly cost is keeping you from enjoying the benefits of a subscription service, look for cheaper alternatives. These tips will help you find cheaper alternatives without sacrificing quality.
The best way to avoid subscription fatigue is to not sign up for services in the first place. Do you really need them? Maybe split services. Watch one service at a friends and have another that you pay for and they can come over and watch. It isn’t just streaming that hits us in the pocket monthly. he list of streaming services on many peoples bank statements is quite long.
Maybe it’s time to ditch a subscription or two?
