Rethinking Service

May 18th, 2008 at 09:15 am

After reading an article on the Finance Forum I regularly visit, I'm going to do my homework on really scrutinizing services that I pay for on a monthly basis. Things like banking services, utilities, insurance.
When talking to my mother the other day, she realized that one of the cards she uses for auto-pay was charging her $14.95 for each transaction! Needless to say, she got on the phone and switched to using her main bank for this. Zero charge.
I have never explored other options for phone service or internet. Last time I shopped for car & homeowners insurance was two years ago.
It was a 'smack yourself on the forehead' moment after that article, realizing that I work hard to cut back on our grocery, gasoline, and electric bills but had overlooked other areas that could use an evaluation!

    Bank fees are ridiculous! Luckily I have a credit union that does online bill pay for free.
