Save Big This Spring: These 3 Websites Will Trim Your Bills

As winter winds down, so can be our motivation to tighten our purse strings in 2020. Here are three sites that can help you tidy up your budget and make your wallet smile again.

Insurify: Rev up the savings on car insurance in minutes

 

Are you getting the best deal on car insurance? With Insurify, you can find out in just two minutes. Fill out one form and get up to 10 or more real quotes to choose from.

Adjust coverage options, read company reviews, and easily purchase the right car insurance for you. Don’t forget to save your profile for future shopping and set alerts for price drops. 

The average Insurify user saves $489 a year!

 

Chime: Spring-clean the fees away…for good

 

Ever felt nickel-and-dimed by bank fees? Traditional banking is full of them: overdraft fees, monthly service fees, foreign transaction fees, minimum balance fees. These cost consumers hundreds every year.

With the mobile bank Chime, you can kiss those hidden (and not-so-hidden) costs goodbye with ultra-transparent, low-fee banking. You’ll never be charged for:

  • Overdrafts
  • Monthly services
  • Foreign transactions
  • Minimum balance requirements
  • Card replacements

Still unsure? Set up an account for free and test the waters at no cost. 

 

Lemonade: Sweeten your deal on home and renters insurance

 

If you’re interested in saving the world as much as saving money, Lemonade is for you. You’ll save with a cheaper policy—68 percent cheaper than large insurers on average. Plus, Lemonade donates a portion of profits to organizations doing social good. 

 

That’s right: At the end of the year, Lemonade lets you choose where to donate up to 40 percent of your unused premiums. Last year, $631,540 was donated to charities like:

  • American Red Cross
  • Women In Need
  • The Trevor Project
  • ACLU

Nice.
