I have to agree with the original poster. I don't know how you define "nickel-and-dimed" but I define it as little tiny fees that add up over time.

Also, in this case I find phone payment charges particularly egregious as they are in essence charging me a fee to save them money. Unless there is actually a live person that you call who will input your checking account information and initiate the telephone payment and then post it to your account, they are saving human resource money by not having to pay somebody to collect his check from a mail box, open the envelope, record the payment to his account and then deposit the check into their bank.

The more people that they can get to use any automated system, the more money they will save over the long run.

Just my $0.02.
