Question about paying GE cards from my bank

I prefer to use my banks bill pay to send payments. My bank does not recognize walmart or dillards in there add payee section, however they have gecrb. If I use that option with the account number would that be ok?

I suggest you enter it in manually to exactly how it shows on your statement mail in for payments.

I think you would be okay with the GECRB because that is the new name but why risk it...

+ 1 - for sure.

 

I bank with USAA and use bill pay with them. For Walmart, I had to enter Wal-Mart, then it was fine... I do not have a Dillards card - sorry.

 

Try Wal-Mart. Otherwise as CA says above, put the information in manually.

Re: Question about paying GE cards from my bank

If you use your bank Bill Pay and if it doesn't automatically appear...you just have to enter the statement info exactly as it appears along with your account number and you should be fine!! I had to do this with my GE accounts. I bank with chase. I have 4 GE accounts and when I would enter the info for a different account, the bill pay system would get confused and think you were trying to overwrite one of your accounts already listed.

The truth is out there...
