Re: Community Poll: Paper or E-Statements?

I download the statement and add it to my document system. On the ones where I can't turn off paper statements, it is usually done before I receive the paper statement. The paper statement just goes straight into the shredder.

 

On the few companies that don't offer a pdf option, there are free pdf creation programs available now. Just "print" to your pdf software.

 

Make sure you have backups and this is far more secure than paper.

Re: Community Poll: Paper or E-Statements?

Hybrid: some paperless - some mailed.

 

Give me a reason not to get a mailed statement and I will opt for it.

 

It is a simple matter to save a .pdf statement to disk or thumb drive. (Or both!)

 

I believe PenFed's $0.50 applies only to bank accounts, not CC's. I have never gotten paper on my bank accounts there, have always had both on my CC's and have never paid a $0.50 charge.

 

 

Both: Direct Merchants Bank, Discover, PenFed, Macys, BofA

 

Paperless Only: Chase, Citi

I prefer my paper statements for my CC files. I guess I am just old fashioned.

I don't need anything in the mail coming from a creditor unless its a check enclosed.

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.

Re: Community Poll: Paper or E-Statements?

No paper!  You should add a poll to this thread.  :smileyhappy:  No paper because I like convenience and less mail in my mailbox.  I also use the "print screen" button all the time while reviewing/paying bills.  I'm suprised the poor thing doesn't wear out.

Re: Community Poll: Paper or E-Statements?

E-statements for me. I'd rather print statements as needed. After learning from my past credit mistakes, I obsessively monitor my accounts.
