Important Terms and Conditions
These Important Terms and Conditions are mandatory to your access and usage of BillAdvisor (“BA”) services and website. BA reserves the right to make changes or updates to our websites, services or content at any time without notice, including but not limited to these Terms & Conditions, billing process, et al.
User Information & Participation
By using BA services, you agree to provide any and all accurate and current information required by service providers to negotiate on your behalf. Your personal information is confidential and will only be used within the scope of negotiating discounts and for internal purposes.
BA must receive copies of your monthly bills with the necessary information and your verbally expressed authorization required for your concierge to negotiate discounts on your behalf, such as account number, outline of services/features, etc. You may transmit this information either over the phone to your BA concierge, via email, or by uploading to our website. If such verbal authorization and identifiable account information is required as a security measure by your service provider, we will be unable to negotiate savings on your behalf until this is provided.
Our BillAdvisor Platinum plan requires that a customer submit a minimum of three different monthly recurring bills, though not necessarily at the same time, to allow BillAdvisor sufficient opportunity to reach the threshold of our $150 savings guarantee.
The service is billed on a subscription basis of $12.99 per month. You will be billed in advance on a recurring monthly basis utilizing the form of payment provided to BA. If BA is unable to process your monthly subscription fee, your account will be placed on hold until payment has been made.
The person who signs up with BA is responsible for monthly subscription fees owed to BA, regardless of the name on the provider statement.
Clarification of Services Provided
BA does not provide financial, legal, or tax advice. All services or information provided is not intended to be financial, legal, or tax advice. All financial decisions made relative to working with BA to save on your bills will be made at your sole discretion.
Rights You Grant to BA
By using our websites and/or services, you are granting us the permission and authority to act on your behalf with your service providers. You acknowledge and agree that BA is authorized to speak with service providers on your behalf and make changes to your account, services, and/or features.
Reduction of Recurring Bills
As a concierge service to individuals wishing to lower their eligible monthly bills, BA has extensive experience and established relationships with various service providers in the general areas of, but not limited to: cell phone, cable/satellite TV, Internet, energy, mortgage, satellite radio, home security services, as well as life, home and auto insurance, etc.
BA will negotiate with your current service providers for discounts on your monthly bills. We will only make changes to features or services on your account (other than adding discounts, credits or promotions) with your permission. Due to limitations and differences among various service providers, BA cannot guarantee that savings will be achieved during each negotiation.
Referral to Service Providers
Part of the BA concierge service benefits include personal shopping for alternate providers, particularly in the case when submitted bills are not eligible for any savings. You will then have the opportunity to choose from lower rates offered by another service provider(s), with equal or greater service as desired.
Your new rates should appear on your provider statements as outlined by your BA concierge. If the savings do not appear as discussed, you must notify BA within 30 days of receiving your provider invoice. We will investigate with the service provider and attempt to rectify any mistake. If the savings are not going to appear as originally discussed, BA will communicate this to you. If you do not notify BA within 30 days, it is assumed the savings appear as discussed.
Cancellation of Services
If at any time BA is not saving you an amount equal to or greater than your monthly subscription amount, you may discontinue services with BA. To cancel your account, you must notify your BA concierge by phone. The cancellation date will be the last day of the billing period for which you have already pre-paid. BA reserves the right to cancel your account at any time for any reason, in such instance BA will communicate this to you, including the effective date.
If you are unsatisfied with BA services for any reason, please contact BA and allow us to rectify the situation. Your satisfaction is important to us and we’d like to make it right if we can.
