Are you feeling the financial pressure?

Free to download and use (on App store and Google Play), Little Birdie can not only help you to save your hard-earned cash but the app can also help you to manage your money better – read reading to learn how.
#1 Little Birdie gives you a complete overview of your subscriptions and recurring payments
When we’re asked how much we are spending on subscriptions or your recurring payments, it can be easy to live in blissful ignorance, proudly saying at the office that you don’t subscribe to many subscription providers, but when we take a lot at our monthly outgoings – everything from our Netflix and Spotify to our Mortgage repayments and TV license payments - and really break down those sometimes-hidden subscriptions we are paying for each month, each year, it can be a rather nail-biting experience! Thankfully, the Little Birdie app does the work for you – and fast. On signing up for the app and connecting through open banking (you can also connect your accounts manually*), Little Birdie will pull across all your subscriptions and recurring payments, allowing you to see them in one place. What’s that saying, “action is the best form of prevention”; the same is true with your finances, to start saving you need to have an accurate picture of where your money is going, and the Little Birdie app gives you these insights in one easy-to-use app! Don’t just take our word for it, Little Birdie was highlighted as a solution in a recent TechRadar article: I wasted megabucks on tech subscriptions – here's how to avoid my mistakes.

*Open banking captures all regular payments but sometimes not all annual repayments which can be easy to forget about! The Little Birdie app also gives you the opportunity to enter your payments manually – ensuring you never overlook those one-off yearly repayments again!
#2 Click to Cancel & Cancellation Help
Having identified those unwanted subscriptions using the app, the next step is cancelling them. Now, ordinarily, this can be a pretty painful process, one where you either get sent down a rabbit hole of reading excessive information on a provider’s website or end up in a heated conversation with the provider on the phone – where you are likely to be in a state of desperation and despair. Little Birdie is here to put an end to your cancellation woes! With our Click to Cancel feature, you can cancel with a list of over 400 vendors. Simply, complete an online form to request your cancellation with a selected supplier. Little Birdie will then pre-populate the form with some of your details to help make the process that much easier. You will need to provide some information so the subscription/service provider will be able to identify you. Click here to learn more about the process.
If your provider isn’t included on that list, we can still help! With Cancellation Help, we offer a guided approach, that will help you cancel contracts with the most popular subscription providers. Simply, select the subscription and hit Cancel Subscription, then the guide will give you everything you need to be able to complete the cancellation process as painlessly as possible including:

#5 Analyse your overall spending

It is a pretty horrifying and complicated task – this isn’t a job interview, you don’t have to pretend to be an excel wiz with us - and with the Little Birdie app, there’s no need! Another awesome feature of the app is that it provides a monthly breakdown of your spending, which means, you can close that budget excel tab and tick another thing off your to-do list – because the Little Birdie app has got you covered there too!
