I called upon my budget because my husband and I are drowning in bills; our income is excellent but we have managed to overcommit ourselves. I have been struggling to manage the bills every week; feeling stressed and depressed over the whole situation. Initially we saw Pamela who was great at getting the ball rolling. Since this initial meeting I have called upon my amazing my budget coach Tamara many many times! I have had to make changes several times already and the first pay only came in today. Each and every time she has been extremely hel...pful and efficient with each request and change and has never made us feel like a burden. So far my experience has been very pleasant, I feel super confident and like we are in good hands. Here’s to financial freedom!
Wow, I can’t believe how sensational this is,
I have been with my budget for a month now and I wish I knew about it years ago,
Best decision I have ever made in life, no worries no stress everything is organised all I have to worry about is doing my weekly shop.
Great Service,great to deal with always pleasant to speak with
The best decision I ever made....
One of the best decisions I have ever made, I was living week to week and spiraling deeper into debt. From the first phone call to now every person I speak with is professional, polite, patient, thoughtful, kind and compassionate. This was particularly evident when I received a chronic medical diagnosis, so much was going on but I knew I didn't have to worry about bills, I only had to concentrate on getting better. Now 18 months later I'm on the road to recovery physically. Financially, I have saving plans in place and for the first time in 10y...rs had double the amount of money for Christmas. I cried the day when I was updating my budget and the person I was talking with said I could have x amount of money for Christmas. I tell everyone how wonderful MyBudget are and you don't need to be in financial difficulty to use the services. I can't thank MyBudget enough for what they have done for me.

Don't know where i would be without them. Life changing..
When i first joined My Budget i was on the brink of bankruptcy at such a young age.. but since then have been able to turn that around. Yes there is some debt to pay off (which the team completely took control in setting up and making those calls that no else wants to do) but also in the position where I am now saving money as well... it's comforting to know i have a weekly income each week for the essentials, that the bills are paid on time even on the odd occasion i have missed putting the bill through to them on time they are sure to make s...ure it's paid.. Yes there are fees to pay of course but I'd rather be paying fees knowing things are paid for then paying late fees on bills etc I appreciate the help from the team every time you make contact wether on the phone or the chat on the app always helpfull quick about it if needed and always looking for the best way to help. Yes you need to think ahead when wanting to withdraw but that's all part of your personell planning you need to take responsibility for. At the end of the day it is still your money If anything my experience has taught me how to better deal with my money and some great tips so when one day when I'm back on my own two feet and maybe don't need My Budget as much I know that i will be able to manage myself
You can't put a price on having financial peace of mind.
Honestly before I joined, I was constantly scared about how I could ever get out of the financial mess that I was in.
I never opened mail and I lived week to week just surviving and never being able to address my debts.
Almost 2 years on my financial world looks a lot different.
With the help of my budget taking charge of my finances, dealing with debtors that would no longer deal with me due to my constant breaking of agreements.
I'm almost completely debt free, I have two savings accounts with more money in them that I have ever been able t...
Best thing we ever did
Going through My Budget is the best thing we ever did, we have so much less stress now, bills are being paid and on time.
The staff are excellent and very helpful, I recommend these guys to everyone I speak to who tell me they need help with budgeting.
They are keen to help you get the best from your budget.
Yes have never had any issues when dealing with My Budget and will continue to use their services in the future.
Family of 8.. Changed our standing
With 5 kids and Single Income in the 2 years of my budget we have paid 21 k in debt and saved ourselves the arguments over money. What you can't do with your own budgeting is know when you have the extra (free funds). Well worth the money, Now debt free and saving to buy our first home this year. Can highly recommend this service, you learn to become money disciplined. Yes you need to think ahead in advance for cash withdrawals but it's all part of the planning.
Wished I never did it
Sounded promising at the beginning, $1000 set up fee, and $35 weekly fee (was originally higher). Yearly total came to over $3000+
Something that they offer you can do yourself.
Was a total waste of money.
They are not a bank, if you need money urgently and are stuck on weekends you will need to wait the next business day.
The fees are much higher now since I was a customer in 201x
Customer service was ok, but for the money you pay it should be allot better.
Bills did get paid but there were some mishaps (phone and care rego not paid twice e...
Not for everyone but works great for us!
The budget has been fantastic for my family! The relief from financial stress has been amazing and we are only a couple of months in! I can see how my budget may Not work for everyone given the fees but I feel the fees are worth the stress relief and I can see clearly on my budget app when the fees are coming out and how much they are. All my bills are paid on time and I review the budget regularly through the app to make sure of that. If your giving all the correct information to my budget I can’t see how anything could go wrong.
After being skeptical for 6 months we gave them a call. Like most we were on guard with our hard earned money when we met them. We met with Rachel Adams who is genuinely a compassionate person in her role to work up a great solution we thought was not fathomable..
Processes have staked up and customer support has been great . We have observed that the staff that my budget attracts are genuinely caring and personal out of the financial services sector. After all helping people in need atracts a certain person to stick with it.
At least give them a call so u can make an informed decision. Rachael details below.
A game changer!
We joined MyBudget back in 2012 and it was the best decision we ever made. It is life changing!!! Aside from not having any financial stress in our lives, it has only ever been a positive experience using the service. The stress of day to day bills and debts took its toll on us as a family and the staff at MyBudget have always made it easy. Nothing is every too much trouble and the service is always exceptional. Best customer service ever!! We highly recommend using this service. You will never look back. Thank you MyBudget. Continue to do what you do so well.
This changed my life.
After trying unsuccessfully to get my partner to join My Budget when the relationship ended one of the first things I did was sign up. Easily one of the best things I have done for myself and my kids. I now have no worries about bills because I know I have a good plan in place, and now know that I will achieve my goals.

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.
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.
