Taking the stress out of managing money
I've been with MyBudget Since 2013. I struggled with managing my income and budgeting for bills and savings after a divorce and it was so stressful for me trying to keep it all together. Absolutely worth every cent to have all of that stress taken off my shoulders. I only need to contact them if something has changed, otherwise I can rest easy knowing that everything is accounted for and bills are being paid and I have money aside for all the things I need. During times when income or circumstances have changed, the staff have been very helpful in assisting me and offered advice on ways I can streamline the budget to keep me on track. I honestly don't know how I would've gotten through the last few years without them!
No more money worries
I joined My Budget almost two years ago and it was personally the best decision I could have made for myself. I was never taught how to manage my money and felt I wasn't handling it very well at all. My Budget quickly set up a plan and I am now on top of all my bills and don't owe anything on credit cards etc. I am now looking at buying a house and land package and will definitely stay with My Budget as they are extremely helpful. I just pick up the phone should I need to make any adjustments to my plan and it's all taken care of. Thanks My Budget, your team is the best!
They saved my LIFE!!
I joined my budget about 4 years ago. I was not in a very healthy position and my finances were a huge source of stress for me. They came along with all their skills, knowledge and understanding personalities and took the worry away!. Over the years i have been caught up in some emergencies were i needed money and they somehow were able to work my budget so that i survived!. I love when i call it doesn't matter who you talk with they are all very kind and understanding.
We have teenage triplets and were living week to week paying bills as they came in and never seemed to have money left over for food or clothes when the kids needed them.
After 12 months we were in front of everything including house repayments.
We have been with MyBudget for 4 or 5 years now and could not be happier.
I joined mybudget when I was in dire straits. They helped me avoid going bankrupt and enabled me to pay off my debts. At times it was a real struggle but I done it. I've now been with my budget over 7 years and love it. I never have to think or stress over bills and I even manage to save now. Mybudget is my lifesaver and sanity saver and I couldn't recommend them enough!
Great brand and phenomenal service.
I wanna say I joined my budget roughly a year ago. dialing back to then verses now, I was up to my eyeballs in debt, random payments would come out of my account that I could figure out what I was paying for. I was seriously considering bankruptcy because of my own actions. Then this beacon of light called my budget showed up on my Facebook feed. I'll admit I was sceptical because let's be honest it was a fb ad and we all know what they're like. But mybudget was different. When I first enquired they literally took what little information I had ...and did a budget at a glance. Looked pretty good so I asked them to dove deeper. They took control of everything for me, and now. I'm in a position that I'll be looking at buying my first home by the end of next year! And fun fact! they've tossed their hat in the ring to find the best broker for the job :DD in all honesty I really wish someone somewhere had told me about them years ago. But either way better late than never :D thanks again mybudget!
I would be sunk without MyBudget
They gave me their honest assessment on my situation (which was terrible) and a very clear plan on how long it would take to get myself out of credit card debt, curve my spending and tighten control of my bills and expenditures. They were so helpful and supportive of the fact that Id have to change unhealthy habits and have, and continue to be supportive every day of the emergency pop up expenses and the overall effects on my budget because of those. I know my limits and can clearly see where my money goes and the position I am in.
I like the ...

MyBudget can't even pay bills on time or with the right details. The one thing I paid them for.
Firstly: please ignore any positive reviews of mybudget that do not have the verified customer badge. Mybudget inflates its standing with fake reviews.
MyBudget continuously stuffed up my payments over the seven years I reluctantly stayed with them (they make it almost impossible to leave).
I uploaded my car registration bill in a clear PDF. They said they paid it. They actually TRANSCRIBED the number wrong. When the money came back, rather than just going back to the PDF they called me at a bad time during my work day. They never mention...ed during that call that it was about my car registration and there was no nature of urgency to the call. The staff member just said that "a payment came back". Then they just sat on it. They also say they sent an SMS. I can find no record of it. The first I knew was when I received the notice that my car was unregistered. On the weekend. When I needed it to move house. It was eight days between the returned payment and my registration expiring they sat on it when they could have just gone back to the original PDF and transcribe the BPAY details correctly.
I was a newly single parent after 14 yrs of marriage and finance irresponsibility. MyBudget has helped me secure a financial future for myself and my two kids, allowed my the peace of mind knowing all my bills and debts are paid on time. The finance coach and set up team were super friendly and helpful. Best decision I ever made
Look elsewhere before signing up with MyBudget
I've spent about 6 months with MyBudget. It has helped me get back on track with paying off my debts. However, it is very expensive for people who are struggling financially. The service also varies in quality and you need a lot of time to liaise with the customer service officers as they do not reply to messages promptly and calls are time consuming (once I waited 40 minutes for my call to be answered). At the end of the day I decided it wasn't for me but still have $900 of my initial joining fee to pay off. I'm pretty disappointed with the service and would recommend doing your research into other options prior to signing.
Effortless simple and supportive budgeting.
Had joined MyBudget as I wanted somebody to handle my finances whilst I want to focus on living a life. This service has the best customer service I have ever experienced and its a testament to the business model that they have nailed right. You are welcomed and supported all the way and I have never ever wanted to buy more houses now I have someone else manage my money.
My budget should be mandatory as it helps take the worry stress and managing of your bills. The simple fact I take a photo of my bill and its dealt with is amazing. I love get...ting phone calls or having to call the MyBudget team as they also share their own personal experiences. Working in the mines its easy to lose track of money but seeing it and planning for things makes it all worth the while. Love the service and customer support and will continue for a long time with the team at MyBudget. Joe
So this is my story and I'm hoping I can get this message to as many people considering Mybudget.
Mybudget initially did help me get back on track with my budgeting however the fees are excessively expensive. There're two fees that you pay. An weekly admin fee of $40.50 and then you're paying off the establishment fee which was around $1500. With the budget they created, I was living off $125 a week for living expenses, food, petrol ect. I worked out that the extra $40.50 made a huge difference to having more cash to live off. I also worked o...

Questions & Answers
Why are none of your positive reviews from Verified Customers?? Why do they all read like the first twenty seconds of a radio advertisement?
lol even in their tv ads they have to say REAL MB customers cuz when they first started out they would use actors in different roles in different ads. Not only that but seems to me their service has not improved at all in 10 yrs so they gotta make themselves look good somehow cuz most ppl that have been with them regret it.
