I think I saw a thread some time back regarding some class action lawsuit related to this. I think it said that legally the bank (or whatever) couldn't charge you a late fee if the postmark was on or before the due date.
Since it was processed one day late, I think we can all assume that it WAS postmarked at least a day earlier, unless your local postal service offers the "teleport" option.
Someone else mentioned just calling and explaining/being nice - I second that suggestion. I've never had a problem getting a late fee removed for a payment a day or two late when it was not a regular thing.
I'll bet they'll take it off for you.
