We pay our bills online. That saves the snail mail delays as well as the cost of postage and checks.
I've had just the opposite affect. And BTW, did get the CC co to drop the late fee until I adjusted my payment schedule.
I just started paying my bills online almost a year ago. I love it, but one thing I noticed is that bills I pay online by a certain date get received later than by "regular" mail. These are the bills that my bank has to write checks for and for reasons unknown to me, cannot pay them electronically, even though they are to other banks.
I pay all my bills by a certain date, the 20th, but need to separate two out and pay them almost as received or they don't get posted on time, and they are payed online now, so snail mail was quicker in their case.
