  • I'd save the money in a seperate account for piggy bank and pay the last bill of the year with it - by KATYBUG48
  • I agree with you but you shouldn't skip a payment on credit still get charged the interest for the month you skipped. - by CAIKEN74
    Why would you give the credit cards or utilities or ANYONE else a free LOAN???Instead, pay the bill and take that extra money you would have given them and put it in a jar or savings account or even under your mattress. Pay yourself first!! - by JEWELRIA11

  • Great idea! Do you that one of the Philadelphia PA utilities charges a fee if you over pay! One month my daughter and her roomate sent in individual checks to pay a bill. I am thinking it was Phila Gas Works but it may have been PECO. Anyway they overpaid by ONE CENT and the next month got hit with a charge for overpayment.. Unreal when they have customers who never pay! - by LEEZAB
    I never thought about doing this! - by CIZETHEDAY124
