Anyone living in Canada knows that for the past few weeks we have had no mail service. Thankfully that has come to an end, but for days now our mailboxes have been empty. I have heard more than once, “Its so nice not to get bills for a change!” Now in reality we all know that just because your bills haven’t been deliver, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay them. This recent situation has sparked companies all over the country to really push on-line payment methods. Most people already pay their bills online, but for those of you who don’t, I am here to tell you that there are some perks that go along with online payments.
Online payment perks include:
You can save $2-$5 monthly by not having a paper copy sent to your house. A saving of $5/month will add an extra $60 in your pocket
~ Free bonus material
Most companies offer some sort of perk for online payment users. I know of a toll highway that gave customers 50 km free for switching to online payments.
Think about how much paper is wasted each year on bills and other flyers included with them. It is an easy way of helping the environment.
With online payments, you can do it 24/7, 365 days a year. (Whether in a strike or not!)
Some people may be hesitant about switching to online payments, because they think they will forget to pay their bills. Companies now will send you emails or even text messages to remind you to pay your bill. This simple switch could save you time and money in the end.
