My DH has a regular credit card and a line of credit credit card through his bank that are automatically paid through his checking account.

It is a pain in the neck! For no apparent reason they can't pay on time, so he always has interest due. It's stupid. We've tried to get it fixed before, but it still is late.

We really should switch back to paying those bills at the ATM with the rest.

HI Valerie

Thanks for commenting. Then your challenge is to get those bills switched - no point in paying interest when it's not necessary!
