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.

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 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.
