I did a double-take when I drove past my local gas station over the weekend. “It’s HOW MUCH a litre now?” When I arrived at the grocery store, I saw that beef had gone up again. In fact, almost everything was more expensive.
Later, I was going through my credit card statements, and I paused over a bunch of charges for subscription streaming services (most of which were acquired during the COVID lockdowns), noting that some of them had increased. I have a BritBox subscription, but I’ll be damned if I can find it anywhere on my TV; it seems to have disappeared from all my screens.
In light of inflation, higher interest rates, and everything else going on, do I really need all of these subs?
This is the concern of all the streaming providers, from Spotify to Netflix to Discovery+ to…whatever else you’re paying for. Are you thinking about trimming the number of subs you have?
Are inflation and gas prices making you think about canceling some of your subscription streaming services? (Please retweet)
