DoNotPay automatically detects subscriptions you don’t use

If someone were to ask you how much you were spending on various subscription services each month, would you be able to answer them? Chances are that you wouldn’t, and you wouldn’t be alone in this. The average American spent a substantial amount of $640 on digital subscriptions last year, according to an analysis done by the mobile app Mint for The New York Times. It’s highly likely that a portion of that sum goes towards subscriptions you barely use.

DoNotPay can help you manage your subscription budget more efficiently by looking for online services that you should cancel as soon as you can. With DoNotPay, saving money becomes a walk in the park—all you have to do is link your email or bank account to our app, and we’ll generate a list of recommended cancelations for you.

Prevent auto-renewed subscription fees with DoNotPay’s virtual credit card

Do you still feel the burn from the last time you forgot to cancel a subscription service online and were charged a pricy subscription fee for something you didn’t even use? If it’s any consolation—we’ve all been there.

On the plus side, DoNotPay has come up with the perfect, most efficient solution against auto-renewed unwanted subscription charges on the market today. Our Free Trial Card is based on a revolutionary principle that can probably save you one monthly rent’s worth of money during the course of a year. The app searches for the “money leaks” in your bank account by identifying the services you should part ways with as soon as possible. It can also request the cancelation on your behalf.

This is how the Free Trial Card works:

  • Creates a random and unique credit card number for the sign-up
  • Approves on “free trial” pages
  • Rejects on “subscription” pages

One added bonus is that our Free Trial Card can generate a random email address you can use while signing up for the free trial. By utilizing this address, you will be dodging irksome marketing newsletters and preventing the company from tracking your location.
