Tip of the day: Sign up for e-statements, get free Bill pay


You probably know that when you sign up for American 1’s e-statement service, you can take advantage of our online Bill Pay services for no charge.

Some members, however, have noticed that they still get charged for using Bill Pay after signing up for e-statements.

Here’s the fix: after you sign up for e-statements, log on to our A1@home home banking system, and then head to the Bill Pay area. Bill Pay recognizes that you are enrolled in the system and stops the monthly fee.

The issue seems to be with members who rarely use Bill Pay. Regular Bill Pay users never recieve a charge; it’s only members who haven’t used the system that seem to get charged.

So remember: after signing up for e-statements, immediately head to the Bill Pay site, and everything should be automatic. Check out our Bill Pay page for instructions on how to get set up.

Bill Pay down this Sunday morning

Just a quick heads-up: our Bill Pay services will be down Sunday, November 2, from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. local, Eastern time.

Bill Pay will be unavailable during those hours, so all your super-early-morning bill payers will have to hold out for just a bit. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Have a great Halloween weekend everyone.

Update: Bill Pay on the iPhone

After some experimentation, I found out that our online banking service, A1@home, works just fine in the iPhone’s Mobile Safari browser, but I wondered how Bill Pay would work.

It turns out it works just fine (see above). You can zoom in to input your bill pay amounts, and while it lacks the fancy features like pop-up calendars, Bill Pay works like a charm.

So there you have it. Pay your bills anywhere you have a cell connection with American 1’s online Bill Pay and your iPhone.
