4 Reasons to Pay Your Bills Online

Remember the days when an envelope with a stamp was the most efficient way to pay a bill? Thanks to online bill payment sites and apps, such as True Blue Online®, that era is long gone. Now bills can be paid with a click or two. Besides convenience, did you know there are several other great reasons to pay your bills online?

  1. The environment will thank you. The average American uses more than 700 pounds of paper per year. Paying and receiving bills online will help cut down on the amount of paper your household uses, which in turn helps keep waste out of landfills and reduces the impact on trees.

  2. You’ll save on stamps. The price of one postage stamp may seem nominal, but when you add up how many you use every month throughout the year to pay bills, the cost adds up. If you pay your bills online, that’s one more line item you can eliminate from your budget.

  3. It will help you avoid late fees. Remember that time you left a bill on your desk and forgot about it until the day it was due? After mailing it in, you could count on next month's bill arriving with a nice little late fee attached to it. Ouch. True Blue Online bill pay lets you set up recurring payments and due date reminders so you can make late fees a distant memory.

  4. You can pay all your bills in one spot. Sure, you could log into each of your utility’s web sites every month (and try to remember multiple passwords), or you can log in one time to True Blue Online bill pay and set up all your payments for the month on the same page. Just click, pay and then enjoy your day!
