Netflix £7.49 / month
Amazon Prime £79 / year
Dropbox £79 / year
Amazon Prime Music £7.99 / month
When I work out the above, I pay £28.65 per month for thousands of films and TV shows, unlimited music streaming, free shipping from Amazon, a free eBook each month and 1TB of online storage which backs up my most import photos and files, and which saves me space on any computer I am using. I am also paying £2.99 per month for 200GB of iCloud storage and am working on what can be done with that so I have left that out for the moment.
When I consider how much use my family get out of the above, it seems more than reasonable and has stopped me considering the cost.
Think about how much you pay for your mobile contract and all of a sudden the amounts above seem tiny. Car insurance, gas, electric, water, mortgages etc etc. Subscription charges are relatively very small and if you avoid silly services that charge by the month to deliver meals and other bonkers ones for razor blades and the like, the costs make perfect sense.
You could save the cost of essential subscription services with the tweaking of one mobile contract. You could also save it by drinking less coffee etc. To sum up, just maybe subscription charges are not significant in comparison to the rest of our daily expenses and just maybe they offer excellent value for money.
So, what have you subscribed to and do you consider the services to be good value for money?
