I’ve been paying Mr. A’s bills by check because it just seems more professional. However, this month I delayed on sending out the payment to his business credit card (which I’ve been paying in full each month). It’s due by the 19th, and I started feeling a little nervous that it wouldn’t arrive in time. So I went online to see about making an online payment, and of course it was so simple and easy to do. And such a relief to know IT’S PAID and I don’t have to worry and wonder if the check will arrive on time.
I am not sure why I feel it’s more business-like to pay with checks. I do like the paper trail of checks.
For our personal bills, I use a variety of methods to pay our bills:
- I pay a couple online using free Billpay through Wells Fargo
- Several are paid by automatic withdrawal
- Still others I go directly to the site to schedule a payment
I guess I would have to say the least stressful way of paying is going to the site and making the payment, because it usually happens right away, I get a confirmation number and I can stop thinking about it.
What is your favorite method for paying bills?
