I’m probably the last on my block to discover the wonders of online bill payment, but I finally did, and it’s fantastic. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to buy in to what I’m guessing everyone already knows to be a good idea. Maybe I was turned off by the fact that my bank charged for the feature (it’s now free), but in hindsight, it would’ve been worth the $3.50 a month they wanted (the five stamps I use each month is half of that already, without accounting for time saved and hassle avoided). In any event, I’ve moved out of the stone ages, at least when it comes to paying bills – I’m still not getting a cell phone.
