Re: Manage on Time Payment on Credit Cards

My DH is still old school. He pays all of his bills by check once he gets the monthly statement and has never missed a CC payment in his entire life. That takes a lot of dilligence but he does have 10 cards to which he uses for various expenses throughout the month. I live by autopay on full balance since I'm fortunate enough to not have big personal bills thanks to DH.

You can't pay bills through Mint, it just shows balances and transactions.

Re: Manage on Time Payment on Credit Cards

Is it true mint.com does not support Capital One accounts? That makes it not worth it to me as I have a CC and auto loan thru them.

Mint supports Cap One, but does not support GE cards.

Re: Manage on Time Payment on Credit Cards

I enter each of my due dates in my iphone with 2 reminders for each due date (one 2 days prior to the due date and one on the due date itself).  My pay goes in the bank on Wednesdays, it's available on Thursday mornings, and I pay immediately every bill due prior to the following Thursday. The rest goes to savings.

Very cool. I use Mint.com myself to keep track of balances, due dates, etc. and auto pay minimum balance (in case I forget to PIF before due date), but any chance you can host a blank copy of that on Google Drive or something so I can play with it?

Re: Manage on Time Payment on Credit Cards

I get paid 2X a month 6th and 21st.  I keep balances in my checking account but to keep the balances fairly level I know the check on the 21st has to pay my rent, car payment and student loan so I've tried to set all my payment due dates up so they hit around the 12th.  That way once I am paid on the 6th I go in and pay them all with a few days to spare.
