Make Paying Bills Easier with Manilla!

How much time do you spend paying bills every month? One hour, three hours, or longer? As the person in my household that manages our finances, I can tell you that I am not fond of (ok, I despise) the day set aside for paying our monthly bills. But, last month I got a sneak peek into Manilla, a new household account organization site, and I just knew I had to share the scoop with you! Plus, in June they are doing an amazing Giveaway: one lucky new user will win $1,000 cash to pay their bills! Save time AND win money? Does it get any better?

Manilla is a free online service that allows you to organize all of your financial and household accounts as well as travel reward programs and magazine subscriptions in one personal dashboard. Simply visit Manilla, create a free account and start searching for the companies you receive bills from such as your cable provider, mortgage company or cell phone provider. Manilla has the capability of linking to every cell phone provider, nearly 200 utility companies, nearly all cable/satellite providers and most major credit cards. After searching for the companies I needed, I was able to find all but one. Now, it’s time to link up!

Linking your account is easy! For example, if you have an online identification and password with your cell phone provider, you only need to enter it once at Manilla to permanently link your account. Now, the real magic happens! After linking up all of your billing institutions, you only need your Manilla username and password to gain access to ALL of your accounts, billing statements and payment histories!

As a Mom who works full time outside the home, life gets hectic. Any service (especially if it’s free) that can simplify my life is a winner in my book! And with the stress of daily life, sometimes due dates can fly by. But, with Manilla you never miss a payment again by setting up custom emails or text messages when important due dates are approaching. I hate paying late fees, so this service can definitely SAVE you money, too!

If getting your household finances organized and paying bills in less time sounds good to you, make sure you check out Manilla!
