For a few years i have used mycheckfree.com to do almost all of my online bill payments. Sadly, in just a few days most of the companies that i paid using that service will no longer be available.
Beginning January 30, 2007, the e-Bills listed below will no longer be available through MyCheckFree.com. However, you can continue to receive and pay these bills online at one of more than 2,000 financial institutions whose online bill payment services are powered by CheckFree. To find out where you can sign up for these e-Bills, go to your e-Bills page and click the List of Other Payment Sites link. When you pay online through your financial institution, you can pay almost anyone – from your electric company, to your credit card, to your golf tournament sponsor.
Please note that if you scheduled a payment to be sent after January 30, 2007, the payment will be processed as direct ed. After January 30, 2007, no e-mail bill summaries for these e-Bills will be sent and automatic payments will no longer be scheduled.
Thank you for using MyCheckFree.com as your personal payment center.
The following e-Bills will no longer be available through MyCheckFree.com as of January 30, 2007:
AT&T Universal Card
Bank One Credit Card

I used to pay Geico, MBNA, Bank of America, and my Circuit City cards through mycheckfree. Now i can only use it for my Gap card account. It was wonderful to be able to log into one place and pay for all of my credit cards at the same time. Now I’ll need to log into four or so different sites to try and pay my bills. It helps that Bank of America has been buying out other credit card companies like MBNA – that’s one less credit card service to log into. But with their absorption of MBNA i have largely lost the ability to transfer balances to lower interest rates. Bank of America has an online service that makes a quick payment fairly painless at MyEasyPayment.com. All you really need is your credit card number and your checking account and routing numbers for the account you would like to make the payment from. I’ll have to go to this site for Geico payments.
