Chicago Tribune | Bank One alters online paying:,1,6822323.story?coll=chi-business-hed

That's interesting that they would do bank used to do it this way...taking the money out of my account either 5 or 2 days before the date. 5 if they cut a check and 2 if it is ACH.

They then switched to Checkfree....and now they take it out on the (due) date. Unless they opt to cut a check to draw from your account...then it works like any other check you write.

I can see how it could get dangerous making this change. There have been a couple of times where I've had to rely on the timing of when they debit my account for an online bill payment and when my payroll direct deposit takes place.

Payroll deposit shows in my account about 8 hours before the debit for bill pay does....

I hate when I have to use the timing to avoid going under (though I do have auto transfer so I wasn't too worried....) Just bad scheduling a bigger snowball than I should've.... But I'll be finished in a couple of months....

The Dreamer.
