Let’s face it, with all the original content streaming, it’s hard to be the friend who hasn’t binge-watched the latest show. According to Forbes, the average American household pays for at least 3 subscription services and spends $9 for each service. That’s $27 a month or $324 a year you can spend on subscription services, which is a lot less than the cable company and less embarrassing than not knowing the ending to “Stranger Things”.
While cutting the cord can be cost-effective, keeping your subscription costs down can be a challenge. We’ve rounded up three tips guaranteed to save you money and make you the savviest cord-cutter of your friends.
