Bill Fixers Review
Bill Fixers is a service that sounds too good to be true: the company claims to contact service providers on your behalf in order to instantly lower your monthly bills. Here’s our Bill Fixers review.
What is Bill Fixers?
Bill Fixers, found at www.billfixers.com, is an online service that claims to lower the cost of your cable, cell phone, home phone, and satellite prices.
To do that, Bill Fixers uses a simple three step process:
Step 1) You Contact Bill Fixers: Fill out the form online or call the company. Tell them how much you’re currently paying for service and how much you’d like to be paying. You can also tell them about extra levels of service you’d like and the price you’d be willing to pay.
Step 2) Bill Fixers Contacts your Providers: Bill Fixers will contact your provider and “wade through the endless call lines, transfers, hangups, and red tape to find promotional offers, negotiate better rates, and implement any changes you’re interested in while we lower your bills.” Bill Fixers claims to maintain an expert team of negotiators who have years of experience getting better deals for customers.
Step 3) You Save Money: “If we aren’t able to negotiate a lower rate for you, there’s no charge. Guaranteed.”
Basically, Bill Fixers is betting that its negotiation skills are good enough to win you over. If the company can’t negotiate a lower rate with your provider, then you don’t pay anything.
If the company does successfully negotiate a lower rate, then you will pay 50% of the first year’s total annual savings.
How Much Does Bill Fixers Cost?
As mentioned above, Bill Fixers will only cost you money if the company was able to successfully negotiate a lower rate for your services.
Once that lower rate has been successfully negotiated, Bill Fixers will charge you a fee based on the amount you are expected to save. Here’s how the website explains it:
“Our cost is a percentage of the total yearly savings we obtain for you from your service providers, making us extremely motivated to save you as much money as possible. Our standard rate is 50% of the first year’s savings.”
You can also save additional money with Bill Fixers by referring your friends and family to the service. For each person you refer, you’ll receive 5% of their savings.
How Much Can You Expect to Save with Bill Fixers?
Bill Fixers negotiates deals with your cable, cell phone, home phone, satellite providers, and more to reduce your monthly bills. The amount you can save will depend on how much you spend on these servings.
Bill Fixers claims that its customers save “an average of 35% off their bills.”
As an example, Bill Fixers claims that a customer with a $200 monthly bill could be expected to reduce that bill to $130. Over an entire year, that accounts for savings of $840. You pay half of that amount ($420) to Bill Fixers and the other half is your own personal amount saved.
Bill Fixers also negotiates for additional services that may or may not have concrete cash value. One customer testimonial claims that Katie was able to save $520 on her annual internet bill and the negotiators also got her free cable.
Types of Bills Negotiated
Bill Fixers does more than just negotiate with your ISP. In fact, the company claims to negotiate “any bills you send us.”
Some of the sample bills sent to the company include:
— Satellite radio
— “Any other type of bill you throw our way”
To send Bill Fixers a bill, you just need to download, scan, or photograph your latest bill from that service provider, then email that to Bill Fixers.
