Couldn't you open both a savings and checking account at some bank? Transfers between savings and checking are typically handled within a day.

All transactional bank accounts have a Routing Number and an Account Number. The routing number designates which bank this is. These numbers are printed on checks and deposit slips.

If you open an account with ING you can call them up and get the routing number and account number (even though you don't have checks). MBNA lets you pay your bill online; you just have to enter your numbers. So you could pay your bill directly from ING without going through your checking account.
