It's great

I sincerely believe I have made the best choice for my financial situation. I find the website and my budget app are both user friendly. My consultant Sharon is very helpful and has made this transition so much easier. I'm really happy with the service my budget is providing me.

Persistence pays off

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 27, 2017

For a number of years I had an issue with the ATO that was getting worse and they were getting threatening to say the least. With the help of our My Budget consultant and some belt tightening on our part we have made regular payments to them even though they weren't pursuing the debt. Finally after approx 4 years the debt has been wiped and we are free to live again.

Can never fault the level of customer service. Helped our family through so much - paying car off, able to make trips overseas possible, paying loans off that seemed never-ending. Thankyou all so very much!

One of the best services I have ever used. Right at a time when I needed to be focusing on other things instead of money (from a bad business experience), MyBudget was there for me.

Best financial decision we ever made

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 23, 2017

Before I joined MyBudget, I was obsessed with our finances, I suffered from severe depression and anxiety. My mental state was so poor that I was lucky to get more than a few restless hours of sleep a night.

MyBudget allayed all of my fears and allowed me to focus on the rest of my life instead of our finances. This service is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.

Joining My budget has been one of the best decisions I have made.
To put all my debts and bulls in one place and get them all sorted is amazing.
Even when I finish up on my debts I will continue with my budget!

Earn money but don't know where it goes?

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 22, 2017

Even though I earn money, I couldn't keep track of my spending and was at a loss to know how I was going to be debt free and save.
Now with the help of Kris and Darryn I have a payment schedule to help reduce bank fees and a savings plan to get me closer to buying my own house.
I wish I had made the call to My Budget ages ago. Thanks

I'm not in debt, just not saving as much as I probably could. Will my budget work for me? As there is no debt are the fees less?

Curious asked on Feb 02, 2017

Answer this

Hi Curious,

Thanks for your question. MyBudget have thousands of clients who are not in debt, and instead use the service to help with achieving their savings goals! We help to create a structured plan and support you by managing all of your day to day expenses. We focus on your goals, whether they be big or small to help you live the life you want free from money worries.

In terms of fees - if you choose to sign up with our service, every plan is specifically tailored to your individual situation and therefore no two clients’ fees are the same. To see if the service is right for you, you can come in and sit down with one of our Personal Budgeting Specialists for a no obligation appointment to map out a budget plan. This consultation is completely free! I would suggest giving us a call on 1300 300 922 and selecting option 2 to discuss your situation further with one of our consultants - we look forward to speaking with you.

Kind regards, Rebecca

How much did they charge you for the service??

Riker1 asked on Jan 02, 2017

Answer this

It varies I think. I was paying $36 a week recently.

It depends on the complexity of the budget. It is incorporated into your budget so you don't even notice it and in all honesty I would have been paying more in overdue fees etc. I highly recommend having at least the initial consultation to see if it works for you. And no I don't work for MB! I just think it really really works and recommend it to everyone!

My daughter used one of these "rescue" organizations (without talking to.me first) a few years ago and was charged 10K ...kind of defeats the purpose to charge that kind of money to someone who's already in financial.trouble dont u think??
