This is mainly for two reasons, 1) I don't trust computers. So, having them pay my bills electronically just doesn't sit right. I realize this is silly. There are still plenty of computers involved even when I send a physical check. Those payments are made electronically out of my checking account. 2) My main reason is, "Why make it easy on the companies?" If any of the companies I am paying by check would offer me a small monthly discount to pay electronically directly, I would. Until they do, they can continue spend money producing paper bills, paying postage to send them, and paying to process the checks I send them. F*ck them.
Uh, what? You're also paying for paper checks and the postage to send them. Not to mention the amount of time it takes to write a check, and put everything in the mail. And even though companies pay to send me paper bills through the mail, I still pay them online, for free.
