You.... write a check? (shudder...), and use a, a, a, stamp? (double-shudder), ... every month
! Oh the humanity!
Seriously, mailing a check seems as archaic as a telegram to me. The small but nagging effort, the small (but it adds up) expense, and worst of all for me - the risk that a payment gets lost in the mail. Or I might get distracted and forget.
I like the assurance that with auto-deduct, it is paid on time every time, and a solid record along the way. While the stamp/envelope are trifling matters, there just is no benefit to them, and some serious (and not so serious) drawbacks, so do away with them! This is the year 2015!
