The Ultimate Guide To Saving Money in 2018


Here at Bill Slasher we pride ourselves on being money-saving experts so it’s only fitting that we put together a short list of some easy and fast ways to save money! This list is curated by our staff with the hope that you’ll be able to pad your pockets with more money.

1. Get Extra Cash Back On Every Online Purchase

If you shop online but don’t use a cash back service then you’re missing out on an extra 2-8% cash-back on purchases from thousands of retailers including Amazon and Wal-Mart. This cash back is extra on top of any cash back from your credit card company.

Our recommendation is to use Ebates because it’s the most popular cash back service and it gives new users $10 in free cash after completing their first transaction.

If you’re looking to save money without doing much of anything this is one of your best options!

2. Automatically Add Coupons Before Any Purchase

Honey is a chrome extension that automatically adds coupons before you checkout with any retailer. This means you’ll always save extra money when shopping. Plus they’ll give you $5 just for signing up!

If you don’t always remember (or don’t like) to search for coupons before completing an online transaction then Honey is the perfect tool for you.

3. Stop Overpaying On Your Cable and Cell Phone Bills

If you’ve had a cable or cell phone bill for more than a year then odds are that you’re paying $10-100/month more than a new customer. We created Bill Slasher to solve this exact problem: by negotiating lower bills for customers to get them the lowest possible rates.

We make sure that you will pay the lowest possible rates on your cable and cell phone bills. Plus, you don’t have to do any of the work and it only takes you 1-2 minutes to sign up!

We believe that we’re one of the easiest ways to save money and so do our happy customers. If you want to see how much you could be saving then check out our free savings calculator.

4. Get A Free Stock By Signing Up For Robinhood

Robinhood is so confident in its service that they’re giving every new user a free stock worth $5-250. You don’t have to buy anything or put any money into the app, just sign up, link your back account and you’ll get a free stock!

If you like getting paid for doing nothing then you’ll probably like this opportunity :).

5. Get Compensation For Flight Delays

If you fly frequently but don’t file claims anytime a flight is delayed or canceled then you’re missing out on free money. AirHelp files claims and fights airlines on your behalf so that you get compensated for any delays.

This is an absolute must for anyone who travels frequently!

6. Passively Invest Your Money

If you’re keeping your money in a savings or checking account then you’re missing out on significant income growth. Betterment is a wealth management service for the masses: meaning you don’t need millions of dollars to get the same yearly investment returns as someone with a high paid investment manager.

Warren Buffet calls compound interest the single most powerful reason for his success and he believes that the masses should be investing in index funds. This is exactly Betterment’s strategy and this is why they generate significantly higher returns on your savings than a typical bank.

7. Keep Track Of All Of Your Spending

Mint is one of the most popular personal finance apps in the world and it helps people track all of their spending and earning in one place. If you want to know exactly how much you’re spending on groceries, shopping, or insurance this month then Mint is the perfect tracker for you!

8. Invest Your Spare Change Automatically

If you know that you should be saving money but don’t always set it aside then you should use the Acorns app. Acorns automatically invests your spare change for every online purchase that you make without requiring any action from you.

This means that you’ll quickly start saving and investing your money without actually doing anything!
