My credit card didn't send the bill this month

I just wondering why my credit card didn't send the bill this month. As I expected, the bill always arrived my home before the end of last month, or at the first day of this month. Because according to the new requirement, we must have at least 20 days to get the bill, and prepare the payment. But this month, I didn't get any bill at all. I am afraid that the bill might lost in the mail, or mistakenly sent to somewhere else. I just worry about those identity theft stuff currently. Luckily, I call the card 1 - 800 number, and get to know the due day, and the minimum payment amount. So, I will send my check without the bill attachment then. I always hate to miss the bill.

A lot of companies are going paperless and send it to you via email. Our power company just switched over and I am still fighting with them because I want a paper bill. I am glad that you called the 800 number to get the amount. Just keep an eye on your statements and make sure no one else is using your card number. If possible go to the site and sign up to view your bill so you can watch it closley.

I guess so. But without paper bill, merely from email, they should send a mail to notify me about this change, or transition from paper to without paper payment. Anyway, I still have to send them a check. I won't feel comfortable to let them have my checking number. Because majority of them won't honor what they are doing. After I pay off the debt, they still keeping on charge you.

Sometimes it happened to me in the past, but after I asks them to send any bill statement or promotional into my email account. No more late bill afterwards. I think you should ask your credit card provider to send their billing statement into your email accont. It's safer and faster.

Ask them to send to my email? I just afraid they might also send along those junk mail to my email address too. That is not reliable for that.

My credit card bills usually arrive late in our area. But eventually I still am able to verify the payment due by going online. Purchases I made through the card can be seen from there, so even if I have not receive the billing statement yet, I am already aware of the charges.

I once had a credit card that would let you skip December's payment w/o penalty but of course interest would keep accruing. You did the right thing by calling and finding out what the payment is and when the due date is afterall no one wants a late charge or a jacked up interest rate over one late payment KWIM?

Sometimes, it does happen that they don't always send the bills. I don't like missing a payment either. It's not something that I like.

This can happen often as the mail service sometimes is not reliable, you can sign in to your credit card company and view all statements, transactions and make payments as well.
