Far too many mistakes, far too many dramas and a Forum of bullies without any management. I was also spending far too much time having to fix their errors and keep an eye on it when it is supposed to 'reduce financial stress'. A minimum of 30 minutes on hold to get access to your own money is also unacceptable. It went downhill dramatically in the last 12 monthsand I'm delighted to be gone. Definitely not worth the huge fees and the major headaches.
When we first started with my budget we were in some real trouble financially. And had no idea of what we were going to do. We rang My Budget, they discussed a plan for us and we got started.
Some of these reviews on this page are whining about the fees and the start up fee, but hey, nobody does anything for free....especially these days.
Personally we thought the fees were very reasonable and the best thing is that you are put on a payment plan and it rolls on from there. In all honesty, once the process starts you don't even notice you are paying anything.
We have been with My Budget for a couple years now, and we are almost debt free. My car is payed off, my partners car will be payed off this year, ourread more
I think it's great that MB worked for you. However there are just as many who have had awful experiences with mistakes, no arrangements with creditors, etc etc. My experience over 4 years got so bad that I was very stressed and spending more time managing my money then I ever did in the past. The service levels have dropped dramatically - perhaps they've just grown too big to care about people anymore.
Joining My Budget was the best decision I ever made. As a single mother with 3 children finances were tight.Working full time, bringing up 3 boys, taking on extra shifts to make ends meet and stressing over how bills were going to get paid. Owing to small loan companies and having a bad credit rating. This scenario left me tired stressed and miserable. I joined my budget about 5 years ago and now I feel healthy and happy. All my bills are paid on time, I have general savings, Christmas savings holiday savings and savings for my wedding next year. I went on a cruise in 2012 and am going on another in about 8 weeks time. The My budget staff are the most friendliest and caring customer service people you will ever come across and celebrate every milestone with you. I am debt free and happy thanks to My Budget. The only regret I have is that I didn't do this earlier. The stress of finances is huge and they take it all away. Thank you My Budget.

I was drowning in debt, and not able to pay my creditors, then I got 2 final notices on for $13,000 (school fees) and one for $8,000 visa card plus an old business debt of $5,000, so I gave my budget a ring, wow what an amazing difference this company makes, my debts have been negotiated to a payable sustainable level, ALL my bills are paid and on time, I have future funds set aside for car rego, maintenance and Christmas next year as well as $1,100 in savings and an even largerread more
