It’s been a few years since I lamented recurring payment schemes that many companies advance now a days. When I first wrote about this, I had five different subscription-based purchases …
My goal at the time was to trim some of them back. Who needs so many, anyway?
Of course, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and I have gotten rid of exactly NONE of them in almost 4 years. In fact, I gradually added things like Apple iCloud Storage and Spotify over the last couple years.
Recently it’s gotten worse as a good friend suggested Apple News+ – which gives you access to the daily WSJ and a hundred magazines – conveniently in my iPad. And, the Disney+ streaming service launched and the Star Wars geek in me needed to be first to see Baby Yoda.
Now I am afraid to run the truebill.com service that reveals how many subscriptions you are signed up for and helps you cancel them. Not only am I annoyed by the almost silent, recurring payments – I love the services they come with!
What’s the trend been on the number of subscriptions you are signed up for?
