It is easy to subscribe to a service and forget about it. You sign up for a free trial. The free trial ends. Then you’re paying a monthly fee for a service you no longer use.
It is easy to overspend on bills like cable, phone, internet, and medical because these expenses can be negotiated lower. The problem is that nobody has the time for a long negotiation session. (If you’ve negotiated with an internet company, you know it takes hours to get anywhere.)
Thanks to the the Trim app, lowering your bills is easier than ever. Forget about having to deal with a customer service rep whose sole job is to keep you from canceling, and don’t worry about endless call transfers to speak to a supervisor.
Trim specializes in canceling subscriptions and negotiating bills. Trim does all the work. You save $500 every year.
