I have my mortgage and primary checking account at the same bank, therefore they give me just about every feature on a checking account free. I try to get everything on billpay (billpay mostly works behind the scenes, they have direct bank wire agreements with many companies, and anything else they draft a money order/cashier's check and mail it) We get it free, but depending on how much a bank charged for billpay, it would probably be a savings over 1950s style bill...

I have written about 3 checks in my life, all around 9 years ago. It astounds me that people still write checks, and barring really old people, I have only had bad business dealings with check writers, the only people who have ever written me checks, did so because they did not actually have the money.

could it be latex?

Most cars would not have a problem running this while on, however this would drain your battery to death in probably 1 hour or less if the car was not running. Power inverters (which you...

Student loan interest is tax deductable, I would love to see principle also be tax deductable, because c'mon really education is an expense that helps the country. That is my middle ground.
