    Question Do you use online banking? Or pay bills online?

    This makes me somewhat nervous, but I will admit that I do pay several bills online. It's fast, convenient, and saves money on postage.

    I pay the majority of my bills on line. Most of our utilities have on site bill payment. I prefer to do this as it is quicker and no postage. It is also easier to keep track, for me that is.

    RIck (my husband) does all the bills and does none of them on-line BUT if I did them I would do them on-line...

    I used to just check my accounts and transfer funds etc. on line but as of two weekends ago, I set up all my bills (the ones that I can) to be paid online. I was nervous about it too but now that I have everything set up, paid a few, it is so easy, and I don't have to worry about sending the payment out a week ahead etc... I think I'm going to like it. I just write on my bill the confirmation #, date paid and file.

    Yes to both questions. Still have to pay a few the old fashioned way as a couple of our utilities do not have online payments yet.

    I pay them online through our credit union. Costs $4.95 a month. I am thinking of cancelling the service now that we've paid everything off. We just have a few bills to pay (cable, phone etc..) now so I'm thinking of going back to writing checks. I just can't justify the $4.95 now without our gazillion credit card accounts.

    Yes, I pay all the ones that don't charge an extra fee for it on-line.It is so much easier and saves on postage and checks.

    I don't mail any. I either have them auto deducted from our account or pay online.

    I have online banking. Not only does it save on envelopes, postage, it also saves on late fees.

    I pay the majority of my bills online as well. I save a stamp and time writing out a check, plus time going to the PO to mail it.
