Those pesky subscriptions. As I mention in Get WalletWise, it is vital that you regularly check your credit card statements. If you have more than one credit card, make sure you compare all the statements at the same time. Just don’t look at them online. Print out the statements, grab a highlighter, and read those statements!
Here’s what happened to me. To publish the book, Get WalletWise, I needed a full version of Adobe Acrobat to create a publishable manuscript. In all the excitement of completing the book and getting the book ready to publish, I created two separate Adobe accounts, under two different emails for the same software. I was paying $19.99 per month times 2. I paid with two different credit cards, so I did not realize this until a couple of days ago. I paid $19.99 per month for 26 months for nothing. When I called Adobe to straighten it all out, they were so upset that they refunded one month’s payment. They even admitted I had never used the account. They received $500 for nothing. My very expensive mistake!
Make sure you are getting what you are paying for! Don’t pay for things you don’t need. Check your credit card statement every month!
