Which do you prefer, paper statements or e-statements?
For me, everything is paper, with one exception (it pays a slightly higher rate for deposit accounts with e-statement only).
I pay everything online, but still prefer to receive the paper statements. I like hard copy records, and I see no reason to use my equipment, my electricity, my ink and my paper, and (most of all) my time to print out statements unless there is a monetary benefit to me for doing so.
The "save a tree" stuff is BS, they still send all the promo stuff anyways. All that's being saved is printing and postage costs for the credit card companies, with the added bonus of potential fees for those times you may forget to check your email (or it doesn't get delivered) or your online account.
My attitude would change if my mail was prone to theft, but it is not.
Comments? Questions? Concerns? Ham sandwich?
I await your responses...

Only get E-statements if you are well organize, and check your accounts and emails often. Going paperless means less statements in the mail and it limits being a victim of identify theft.
I been receving all my statements online for many many years.

I actually "like" both. I like the convenience of being able to pull anything I need up on screen. On the other hand, I like a hard copy in the files too.
