How to Lower Your Monthly Bills

professional mommy bloggerWith these tough economic times, I’m sure the majority of us are trying to cut back on all our expenses.  There are services we cut out and/or downgraded but I’ve recently been introduced to a different approach on how to lower our monthly bills.

BillCutterz.com is a new business that was designed to help folks save money on their monthly bills.  There are tons of companies out there that tell you how to save money, but BillCutterz.com actually does the saving for you.  They do the work, not you!

If you’re a busy mommy like I am, I need all the help I can get.

When I first learned about the company, my first thought was, how does BillCutterz.com make their money because I’m pretty certain they aren’t working for free.  And I was correct, they don’t work for free — unless they can’t save you any money.  If BillCutterz.com is unsuccessful at saving you money, you don’t pay a dime.  So really, you don’t have anything to lose by giving it a shot.

professional mommy bloggerGetting BillCutterz.com to work for you is super simple.  The first step is to fill out the simple enrollment form.  It’s seriously just asking for your contact information, no personal information like your drivers license or anything.  Once you fill out the enrollment form, a Savings Specialist will get in contact with you within 24 hours.

Once you speak to your Savings Specialist, you will be asked to send in all your monthly bills such as the cable bill, home phone bill, cell phone bill, electric bill and even your house payment.  You have the option of faxing recent copies of your bills or submitting your bills online.  Once your bills have been received, BillCutterz.com starts going to work for you to save you money on your monthly bills. You can feel comfortable sharing this information because all personally identifiable information submitted to BillCutterz.com is kept in strict confidence and shall not be sold, rented or disseminated to any third party. Information provided is protected by TrustedID, McAfee Secure, and endorsed by the privacy policies of the Better Business Bureau.

Once your Savings Specialists has secured your new lower monthly rates, your savings will be calculated over the span of the lower rate period and you will pay BillCutterz.com 50% of your savings.  If a new lower rate is secured for 6 months, you pay only the savings on the 6 months.  If a new lower rate is secured for 12 months, you pay the savings on 12 months.  For example, if BillCutterz.com saves you $10/month for 12 months on your cell phone bill which equals $120 in savings, BillCutterz.com will invoice you for $60.

While I’m sure you might be able to secure some discounts on your own, it will probably take a huge time commitment.  Sitting on the phone for hours talking to customer service reps is definitely not my idea of a good time.  I’d rather have the expertise from the BillCutterz.com staff doing the work for me.

    Wow, this sounds pretty cool. Thanks for sharing.

    This sounds pretty interesting. It would take a really long time to talk to individuals companies. Who has time like that to waste? Definitely sounds like something worth trying.

    If they end up saving you money, it’s totally worth the cut they get!

    If you need that sort of thing, great! But I used some common senses and cut my cable bill by dropping some channels, stopped getting a newspaper delivered (read online) , stopped renting DVDs (watch online or go to the library and borrow FREE) etc. I also did some research and found a cell phone service =NET10 with unlimited everything for $50 a month. Great coverage, no bill and no extra charges.

    We also eat out less ofter and when we do, try to have late lunches so it cover 2 meals. And combine car trips to save gas.

    Bet you can find ways to cut back on your own too!

    Thanks.

    This service is a great business idea! I know many people that would love this service. I personally like to sharpen my negotiation skills so I invest the time once every 6 months – 1yr and call my companies and ask for new and better rates. If nothing comes about, if you say that you are thinking about going to a new company they usually can give you a better discount. I have recently done this with my cable bill and my gourmet coffee delivery service.

    If you dont have the time, this is the perfect service.

    I signed up with BillCutterz.com recently. I’ve had a wonderful experience, They saved me money on my trash, cell phone, internet, and natural gas bills. Total saving for the year = $428, which means I saved $214 after their cut. I would suggest calling your current providers and trying to negotiate a lower rate and then following that up with Billcutterz.com. You do give them access to your accounts, but really it’s no different than the information you are giving most of your service providers, and Billcutterz.com has a vested interest to protect you and your information because they make money when you are saving money. I feel like they have more leverage than the average person as well, I don’t know how they do it but they got me some serious discounts on my cell phone bill and my natural gas bill. This is a revolutionary service that keeps your service providers in check. If you do sign up for the service ask for Katie, she was extremely professional and a delight to deal with.

    I signed up for them after seeing BillCutterz on Lifehacker last week. They called me the next day and already got me savings. I ended up saving $22 a month on my cable, phone and internet bill. It only took a couple minutes and was so easy. My savings expert was Veronica and she was incredible.

    for me saving few bucks and worrying about identity theft wouldn’t be worth it. Now if it were an offline service…that would be something I was interested in. The biggest problem with billcutterz is that all of your personal information is centralized. Meaning if hacker were to access their database (is there any doubt this will eventually happen?) they have all of your information in one spot. If they can save you thousands – then yes maybe its worth the risk. But for few hundred bucks I think I will retain my identity.

      Someone by a “different” name left the comment below on my website within just a few hours of the one from Jessica. The funny thing is, Billcutterz does have a copy of your bills you send them. But really what would a hacker do with that information exactly? Worst case scenario someone knows how much electricity you’ve used last month. I have used BillCutterz and have had a great experience. I am also pretty sure that none of your info is stored on the web. They do have a physical office in Corpus Christi, TX and I believe they store it on a physical server there. Jessica and whoever left this comment below sound like the same person. And have obviously not even spoken with the people at BillCuttterz. And by the way Jessica or Kevin BillCutterz is a small fry compared to mint.com or any banking website.

      “My biggest concern is having all of my personal information centralized in one online location. I would imagine billcutterz will be highly targeted site by hackers (who know whats behind the wall so to speak). If they had a brick-and-mortar locations you could visit and NOT have your information stored online that would make me feel much better. I just read article on best way to avoid identity theft and they mention diversifying your information (not having a central access point for potential hackers). This seems to fly in the face of that advice.”
