BillGuard – This new service aims to be the dead-serious watch dog for your credit card bills, calling itself the ‘Antivirus’ for credit card bills. What does it do, exactly? “BillGuard scans your card activity for hidden charges, billing errors, forgotten subscriptions, scams and fraud, and alerts you via email when your attention is required.”
BillGuard truly is a personal finance savior, and it’s particularly essential to those owning more than just a few cards and finding it hard to keep up with it all. Another cool BillGuard perk is that in addition to its automated transaction scan for errors and hidden fees by over 100 tests, it also scans the web to see if other people have posted complaints or flagged certain transactions and merchants. This ‘people power’ makes the BillGuard community a watch dog in and of itself. All for one and one for all, so to speak.
