Scan Your Charges for Fees, Frauds & Erros

Using a credit or debit card is like committing a crime while sleepwalking: You never know what you’re going to get charged with. And as much as we’d like, pouring over billing statements each month is becoming too time consuming.

Thankfully, BillGuard adds a layer of security to our credit cards that our eyes could never offer. It scans your credit and debit cards daily and alerts you to hidden fees, billing errors, forgotten subscriptions, scams and fraud.

Simply register the cards you want protected. BillGuard scans the web for complaints posted by others about similar charges and merchants that appear on your bills. Instead of personally reading over your bills line by line, you’ll receive a monthly scan report via email indicating how “clean” your cards are. Of course, fraud, scams, and alerts of any serious nature are emailed immediately so you can take care of them right away.

The scan learns by keeping track of places you frequent and the charges you approve to improve its accuracy. And since these are your credit and debit cards we’re talking about here, BillGuard uses the same security measures as your bank to ensure security.

It saved us enough time to locate a sleep therapist. We’ll be cured of committing sleep crimes any day now!
