“Cord Cutters” Save Big

On average, “cord cutters” saved an average of $85 a month, including the amounts spent for internet service and streaming service subscriptions with the added benefit of not being locked into a contract.


Are you dying to watch shows like Game of Thrones? Did you know many streaming platforms partner with premium channels like HBO and Showtime and provide their content at a discounted rate? This is yet another way where cutting the cable cord can help you save money.


What to Do With Your Extra Cash

Once you’ve made the switch and begun to see the savings, the real question becomes, what to do with this extra cash?

What are you going to binge watch?
