We posted about this free way to organize your bills last October. We have been using it since then and have been very impressed and appreciative of the free program. We love to use anything that makes our lives easier, but don’t like paying for it and this is PERFECT! So we are telling you about this again as it is very good deal and one not to miss!
You probably know we receive offers on a normal basis asking us to pass them on to you. Honestly, a majority of them just aren’t that great and we don’t bother. But as I started looking at this one – I couldn’t quite contain my excitement! Best of all, this high quality service is completely FREE!
Right now I have a spreadsheet to manage all of our bills. Our bills are divided by month which means I manually log into each separate website (gas, utilities, cell phones, etc), view each bill and then update my spreadsheet. Thankfully my browser has my login information cached for each as it would be even more of a hassle, but its still a hassle to update each balance manually – and that’s hoping that I’m logging in after the new bill has posted.
Now my life has just become simpler. Manilla is offering a unique, easy, secure and FREE way to manage your bills in one simple place online. Here’s the deal.
Sign up for a free account HERE (took me less than a minute). After that, you add each account by typing the company’s name into the dropdown and enter your login information for each account – this is a one time process. Manilla takes care of the rest:
Within seconds my account information showed up with date due, balance and my full bill was available to view. From now on, I’ll be able to login and view all my bills from one location – and configure each account individually to notify me via email or text message prior to the due date for each bill! Plus they offer a mobile app for both Android and iPhone users to download and provide those reminders as well! I’ll be downloading that as soon as I’m done with this post.
So you might be asking yourself how Manilla can offer this service for FREE. They don’t offer ads (other than from the businesses you have in your accounts) and this is not a 30-day trial trying to lock you into a long-term commitment. As we mentioned before when we recommended on-line bill pay through your bank and going paperless with your bill statements, companies pay a lot of money for printing paper bills and sending them out. When you sign up for Manilla, they stop sending your paper bills so companies actually pay Manilla a small fee every month to save money. As there are so many companies, this is offered for free to us and paid by the companies. I did check though and Manilla states they will keep your bills for as long as you have your account – giving you 30 days to download or print your bills later if you ever decide to close your account.
In the short time that I spent researching this morning, I’ve already setup most of my accounts and configured my notification settings for each bill. Instead of going to all my different biller’s websites, I can now go to one place and review all my account information. Plus I can even pay a majority of my bills through Manilla as well. I’m tickled pink (wow, that says a lot for me, doesn’t it?) and can’t believe just how easy it was to get started!
If you’re interested, use this link to sign up for your FREE account at Manilla and start importing your bills as well!
