okay so i just realized that i have never in my entire life ever mailed in a bill! I pay everything online and always have and if i was to mail in a bill i probably wouldn't know how to do it! Have you ever mailed in bills or do you also pay everything online?

I mail in my mortgage payment and health insurance payment. The rest I pay at the company's office and I only pay the hospital bill online.

 I mail payments. Need to be sure to send them in plenty of time before the due date, the receiving people don't always post the accounts ASAP, and you get hit with a late fee.

 Pay online. Too many people can steal your checks in the mail. I have Idenity protection on my computer so I can safely (or at least more safely than mailing) pay my bills. And you don't have to worry about it getting lost or delayed in the mail.

There are some I mail in, some I pay in person & some I pay online. If they charge me to pay online then I will mail it in. If there is the company here (like my cell phone) I will pay it in person other then that I will do it all online.

Some of my bills can not be paid online. My old car insurance company did not take online payments and neither does my water company.

 Once upon a time I did.  Then the damn post office kept losing bills that were going 45 min away (3 times!!). Then we lived in a trailor when we first moved and did not know that they lady was not going to stop if we had no mail. We come home to find $1500 worth of bills scattered on the lawn. Needless to say, I am contributing to the downfall of the post office.

I pay everything online including my mortgage.  I pay my offering to the church, my sons milk money and my donation to the food bank all electronically.  So much easier takes me 5 minutes to pay bills and be done with it.  I have checks but they have not been used since we bought this house in August only used them to pay rent before.  I know how to pay by check been paying bills for over 20 years just like paying this way now. Don't have to worry about a check being lost in the mail or delayed in the mail.  Many years ago a bill was lost at the post office they found it 4 years later behind a machine.  Because of their mistake I had to pay a late fee.  I have never had any issues since I have been paying online.  Sure something could happen online but it is rare if you have proper security measures on your computer.
