Introducing Bill Watch – Saving MoneyBrilliant customers money on household bills 

We’re always looking for ways to help our customers save money so they can spend more on the things that are really important. To help them even more, we are introducing one of our best features yet – Bill Watch.

Bill Watch will help our customers get the best deals on electricity and gas. Electricity and gas is just the start though, we will be adding more products and services as quickly as we can.

And it’s not just a one off, snapshot of the best deals available. We will continually scour the market for better deals on their bills and let them know how and when they might be able to save more money. We will also let them know when their service providers have increased their prices by sending them a Bill Shock Alert.

For an initial introductory period we are making Bill Watch available to all our customers, but soon it will be exclusive to our Plus Plan customers and customers of MoneyBrilliant Partners.

Customers can use it by setting up their Gas and Electricity Bills in MoneyBrilliant and turning on Bill Watch. For more information on how to set up Bill Watch you can watch this short video.

In App Subscriptions for iOS and Android apps

We’ve made it even easier to upgrade to MoneyBrilliant Plus by including in-app subscriptions for both iOS and Android. You can now pay for your MoneyBrilliant Plus plan through your iTunes and Google Play accounts. To access in-app subscriptions just go to the Settings – Plans screen in our iOS or Android apps.

In-app subscriptions are the same bargain price as our other subscriptions $9.90 per month or $99 per year.
