I was reading through the thread on how you manage your household money with your wife and it got me wondering how everyone pays their bills?

*Do you use automatic bill pay?
*Do you pay online but do it manually with a click of the mouse?
*Do you have bills automatically paid with a credit card and then pay off the credit card each month?
*Do you pay bills the old fashioned way by writing checks and sending them through the mail?
*Do you pay some other way I didn't think of?

As for me, I'm on autopay for everything I can be on autopay for. My mortgage is autopaid through my bank. I have some bills like cable, cell phone, electric and gas that are autopaid by my credit card, then I pay off the card balance every month. That way I get the credit card rewards.

There's one bill, my water bill, that I can't pay online, by credit card autopay or bank account autopay. They require the old fashioned write a check and mail it or show up in person approach. I HATE THAT BILL!! I'm late on it regularly since it's the only one I have that's like that. I think I've complained enough that they may have autopay capabilities by year end.

My water bill is the same way!! It's like they are back in the stone age or something.

I always wind up a couple of months behind on the water because I never remember to mail it or go drop it off. I usually pay it every three months when I get a shut off notice!!

Other than that, I pay half online and half by autopay.

All my bills are auto paid on my Master Card. The Master does an auto draft from my bank. It puts me about a month behind but it works for me. The auto draft is done on the second of each month. It's usually 4 to $600. I used my debit card for all everything after that. There's really not much left on a regular basis, but something will jump up and bite me almost every month.

I seldom write checks. I'll be writing one this weekend for the amount of $160 for upcoming NSTRA trial. I really hate it when people sit on my checks.

I don't....

Na just kidding most are auto debit the rest I pay online. Except my trash pickup, you either have to go pay cash in person or mail a check, only options. Used to mail a check for my truck payment, but about 6 months ago the US postal service lost my check, I got accessed a late fee and almost got my truck repoed because the bank (Security Service) failed to notify me that they didn't get my payment until 3 days before they were sending the tow truck after me!

I got it taken care of but no longer mail the payment.

I just ordered 300 new checks. I guess me and the Mrs are going to have to be married for another 8 years. That is how long it took to go through last time. rofl

Pay most stuff online or auto pay.

I ordered two boxes of checks when I opened my checking account probably 15 years ago... I still haven't opened the second box!

Just curious. Any reason you haven't adopted a more modern way of managing your bills Turkey? Not saying you should or shouldn't, just curious about why you're sticking with the old way of doing it.
