I'm so damn aggrevated with credit card companies right now. I have complained time and time again about this issue!

I'm 99.9% satisfied with most of the service credit cards provide. BUT here's the problem I have with every single card I own.

I CAN'T set up an automatic monthly payment of the full balance owed. I don't want to have to login every month and schedule the payment damnit. I'm forgetful and sometimes the statement comes in late! I tired of getting bent over every couple of months or so.

Sure...you can pay a predetermined amount (eg $100/month) or the minimum balance, but that does me absolutely no good. I DO NOT want to pay a freakin dime in interest! So I'm stuck with scheduling payments each and every month...I'm tired of it...just take the money from my bank account for Pete's sake.

I'm pissed because I know that if their web programmers can figure out how to schedule minimum balance payments, they can set up full balance payments...they just choose not to do so.

Why don't they, you ask?


They would cease to get late fees and interest off of people like myself that forget to pay on time every month if they provided that service.

My bank and online bill payors like checkfree.com don't provide it either....so I know it's only a matter of time before I get hit again.

I got hit with $89 this last month....and I'm still fuming from that.

I'm not interested in making banks any wealthier than what they are!

Someone please help!
