Another seemingly worthwhile web site that promises to lower your bills


Go to the BillShrink web site, and it will note that its site is occasionally running slowly because it's had a lot of press lately, which means more traffic than it's expected.

I'm about to make it worse. So far, BillShrink only assists customers in shrinking their bills with cell phone plans and recently, credit cards. It seems obvious that they hope to expand into other types of bills, however, and so they're probably worth watching for awhile.

It works like this: Type in a little information about what you're looking for in a phone plan, and now credit card plan, and using a bunch of variables -- for instance, with the cell phone plans, they have signal maps and plan rates at their disposal--they'll tell you what service plan you should be using with your carrier, or if you should dump your phone service and find a new one. And now they're taking that concept and using it with credit cards. Do you want one with the lowest rate possible? Something with the best rewards possible? Whatever your needs, BillShrink purports to be able to give you the best plan out there. The Washington Post recently wrote about them, as did the Dallas Morning News, CNET News, the Consumerist and on and on.
