Our ProductHunt Launch

Thanks for all your support! Yesterday we unrolled our new site design and officially launched on ProductHunt.com. Thanks to your overwhelming support, we finished Product Hunt in the top spot!

If you haven’t heard of Product Hunt, don’t worry – it’s kind of a niche tech industry thing. But it’s a huge validation of all the hard work we’ve been putting in and we love hearing the positive comments from users.

Thanks again for using Truebill and we’re excited to roll out new features in the near future.

Five Creative Ways to Save Money in the New Year

Being frugal gets a bad rap these days, and while clutching one’s money like a paranoid miser is certainly off-putting it couldn’t hurt for any of us to be a little more careful with our finances in 2016. New Year’s resolutions are inevitable after all, and while you’re dusting off your Stairmaster or reconnecting with acquaintances from your trip to Denmark, now is also the perfect time to start saving your money.

The simple fact is, when it comes to personal finance advise like, “ask yourself, do I really need that?” usually fails, so I would like to share some more creative and effective ways to hold on to one’s dough in 2016.

Reintroducing Ourselves as Truebill.com

Hi!

Today’s an exciting day for us – we’ve changed our name to Truebill.com to reflect our new mission. When we came up with BillNinja, we thought we’d help people “slash” their bills from subscriptions and recurring payments. As we built the platform and spoke more to our users we discovered a larger need – 1 platform to manage all subscriptions and bills. Basically, 1 place to see your True Bill.

We’re excited about all the the functionality we’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks and are thrilled that so many people have used our service to find, track and cancel their subscriptions.

Let us know what you think of our new logo, and make sure to tell us any features you’d like to see added to the platform.

Thanks!

13 Subscription Gifts That Can Simplify Your Holiday Shopping

We’ve all had those moments of drawing a complete blank about what to give someone as a gift for the holidays. You know that person that doesn’t need anything or returns every present, or just someone you don’t know all that well on a personal level but feel obligated to give a gift to anyway (probably your boss).  Instead of stressing about crafting the perfect gift, just hand that task off to a third party: a subscription based company.

Don’t worry, it’s not as impersonal as it sounds. Instead, you could get a personalized gift that keeps on giving after December. Subscription gifts bring the joy of receiving something in the mail coupled with new items to taste, use or play with. Plus, it’s not too hard to figure out at least one area of interest for those hard-to-buy-for people. And luckily for you, there’s a subscription for just about everything! BillNinja.com put together a list of 13 perfect subscription gift options for people on your holiday list.

Netflix and Chill? Hulu and Hangout? BillNinja Helps You Plan Your Lazy Sunday

It’s a tequila-soaked Saturday. A snowed-in Thursday. A lazy afternoon with a girlfriend or boyfriend or the Thanksgiving aftermath when your family bids the guests goodbye and relaxes in front of the TV. The list goes on, and on. It is unlikely that online film/TV providers will die out anytime soon when there is a seemingly endless number of situations for their product. Their popularity has soared so meteorically that some of their original programming rivals cable TV, and expressions like “Netflix and chill” become social media sensations.

You can’t go more than a few clicks before seeing an ad for an online film/TV provider and let’s be honest, while we won’t ever be truly satisfied with their roster of content such a service is simply great to have. But which is best? Below is a humble ranking put together by the team at BillNinja.com, based on pricing, library and ease of use.

Keep in mind this list concerns providers who offer a wide range of content outside their own programming, so HBO Go doesn’t count. If you do have HBO Go, I’m free on most Sundays and I always bring snacks.
