I just wanted to let everyone know there is a new sneaky way of companies getting more money out of you.
I paid a bill online today. The due date is today. They had already tacked on the late fee. I was a bit steamed about the whole thing so I called them. "We will take off the late fee if the payment isn't late. If you pay today, don't worry." Grrrr.
The moral of the story is make the payment earlier (on this occasion that wasn't possible.) Lesson learned: watch account like a hawk and make sure the $29 late fee doesn't 'accidentally' stay on your account.
