Monthly subscription services are awesome, giving you access to a variety of things at a low price and making you forget all about payments since they’re charged once a month to your card. When you have too many of these subscriptions they’re also an easy way to lose money without knowing where it went.
New services are following the subscription plan model, making it easy to lose track of all the money you spend on these monthly costs. You might spend hundreds of dollars on music streaming services, podcasts, and other subscriptions that provide new TV shows and movies.
There are several websites that help you stay organized. If you have Google apps or services, this website keeps track of all of your Google-based accounts, such as YouTube and Google Drive. For Microsoft-related subscriptions, such as Microsoft Office and Skype, you can head over to this website.
When it comes to hand held devices, Android and iPhone have simple ways of figuring out how to keep track and monitor your subscriptions.
If you want to see all of your subscriptions services on your iPhone, Popular Science explains that you can locate all of this in your Settings. Tap in your name and tap on iTunes & App Store. After this, tap on Your Apple ID and then on Subscriptions. On this screen you’ll be able to view and cancel out the subscriptions you’re no longer using.
