DoNotPay, the robot lawyer known for getting you out of parking tickets, is back with a new service. And this time, DoNotPay wants to scan your emails to save money. It helps you unsubscribe from expensive services with a single click or join class actions against spammers ̵1; all without changing your current email address.
To use DoNotPay’s email service, you must sign up for a DoNotPay email address. Once you have done so, forward all your current email to the new DoNotPay email service. It scans your emails for opportunities to find money.
If you receive an email about a subscription service you are paying for, you will be asked if you want to unsubscribe. Have you intended to do so but never reached it for several months? DoNotPay promises to get it done with a single click, saving you money for the future.
When you decide to keep a subscription, DoNotPay’s email will pay attention. Before you are charged again, it will notify you. Then you can cancel if you changed your mind about continuing with Netflix or Hulu. If you cancel a subscription and are still charged, DoNotPay will charge the fee for you.
And if you receive a spam message, you can notify DoNotPay. It will check if there is a class action lawsuit against the spammer and help you join so you can get money for your aggravation. DoNotPay’s email service also works to raise money in other ways, such as requesting refunds for late deliveries or slow airplane wifi. And when it comes to aircraft, it can automatically check you in for an upcoming flight.
Of course, you have to pay for all these benefits. The service charges $ 15 per year for your custom DoNotPay email and $ 36 per year for the DoNotPay subscription service. But it also gets access to other DoNotPay features, such as appealing parking tickets. In theory, the service should pay for itself.
DoNotPay says it works with all major email providers, and you can use forwarding to take advantage of the service from your phone or tablet app. The service is open from today and you can register on DoNotPay’s website.
