Edit Your Monthly Bill Costs with BillCutterz

Many of us are aware that we can save money on our bills. We know we pay too much for cable or car insurance, we maintain our cell phone plan even though it’s not the best deal or we stick with our default electricity provider rather than looking for the one who will save us dough. We don’t bother changing because the hassle tax–i.e. the effort involved with changing our plans and policies–seems greater than the savings. A service called BillCutterz is like your hassle tax accountant, navigating the murky waters of plans, policies and promotions so you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year on your bills.

The way it works is you send them all of your regular bills: Insurance, electricity, gas, cell phone, landline, cable, internet and even house payments. They act as your agent in negotiating the best deals possible with the providers, who often have promotions, plans and loopholes that are too much of a headache for most of us to keep track of. The savings will show up on your regular bill.

BillCutterz has an extensive security system in place. They stay in business by taking half of your savings; e.g. if they save you $600/year, they take $300. They will not take any money if they don’t save you any. You can also pay upfront for the year based on projected savings and save an additional 10%.

The service is a bit of a no-brainer. Even though the 50% charge is considerable, it’s money that wouldn’t exist without the service. Face it, you probably don’t have the patience or skill to do what they do. And it even works if all you have is a few small bills.

An important part of editing your life is making the systems in our life run as efficiently as possible. Seeing as most of us have bills, why not spend as little as possible paying them?

    I tried using bill clutterz and found it really clunky. They don’t have a good way to track your bills – ie you just upload them to some site without login so who knows how they track and it takes them forever to get back to you. They also ask for tons of personal information to become account managers on your account. Did you actually try to use their product?

    I used BillCutterz and I love them. They saved me $18 a month for a year on my cable bill, and they got me two free lines on my family cell phone plan for the remainder of my contract.

    They only asked me for my PIN with my providers, which I don’t think is too much information since all the people at the call centers for AT&T and everyone can see that too.

    Oh man BillCutterz is such a great service. I’m just a college student so I only have a cell phone bill, but they got me down to $60 a month from $90. I have everything unlimited so its almost as cheap as prepaid but with all the bells and whistles.
