I have no experience with BML but from what I've heard on here, BML does not report but they do draw an inquiry (this I do have experience with)

Re: Bill Me Later

trudawg, I have no idea what a "bill me later" means.  More info is needed to assist you.

 

There is no CR status for a "bill me later."

 

Under contract law, no fulfillment of contract is made without remittance of actual and substantive real or monetary remittance.  So I am puzzled by an offer as having any legal standing.

 

Did you make an offer to them that they accepted, under condition of "bill me later?"  Not a business practice that I am aware of.

 

What is the skinny?

Bill me later is a deferred payment service offrered by Airlines, retailers etc. They do pull a hard inquiry, but I am not sure about reporting a TL.

Re: Bill Me Later

Hi there -

 

They do not report at all to any of the three credit bureaus.

 

I have just completed a settlement with them and checked to be sure they didn't add any baddies to the mix.  The only thing noted was their initial inquiry.
