We have two accounts with a specific bank – one for our household and one for business. I’ve very rarely used the online bill pay feature from our business account in the past year. Twice, in an effort to encourage use, the bank has sent me emails offering $10 if I use the online bill pay three times in a month.
Both times I’ve complied! I set up payment for $5 to me, $5 to Jay and $5 to our business. When the checks arrived, I just deposited them into one or other of our accounts.
It took five minutes to do and, both times, my bank has rewarded me with a $10 credit to our account. We basically got paid $10 for nothing.
Works for me!
