Stop Overpaying for These Four Things

save money

Smart shoppers always spend time searching for the best deals. However, some of those great finds aren’t always that terrific. Here are some low-cost options you might be overlooking in your financial life!

bottled water

Bottled water. Some people purchase one case of water each week, believing that it is crisp, pure spring water. The truth? It is often just water that comes out of the ground, much like the water that pours from your faucet. Unless you live in an area with known contamination, there is no guarantee that the bottled water you pay for is any better than the water coming out of your own tap. Avoid this unnecessary cost by investing in a water filter for your faucet. You will not only save money, but also decrease your household use of plastic!




Brand-name medications. When writing your prescriptions, physicians might not always consider your budget…and will promote the brand name medications (which are generally the most expensive.) Be sure to tell your physician that the cost of medication is important to you, and you would prefer the lowest-cost medications available.

Streaming services. Do you pay for a cable package and a full suite of streaming services? If so, you should consider getting rid of the streaming services you do not use often, and keeping only the services that you and your family enjoy the most. This small but effective change will put some extra money in your pocket each month!


credit card

Credit card interest. If your credit card balances are sitting on high-interest cards, the longer you wait to pay them off – the more interest you will accumulate. You should consider combining all of your outstanding balances into a consolidation loan with SeaComm!  This makes it easier to work out a realistic time frame to pay off your debt, without feeling overwhelmed. Give us a call at (800) 764-0566 to start an application, or to schedule an appointment at your nearest SeaComm branch location!
