Home banking, e-statements, online bill pay…you name it, I’ve got it. Not only does it save time by avoiding waiting in lines and writing out checks, but it also saves tons of space because I don’t have all sorts of paper statements and bills floating around. The other huge thing e-services saves me? Money. That’s right, no more 44 cent stamps, no more trips to the post office and no more having to order more checks.
According to payitgreen.org, on average, if you receive 6 paper statements per month and mail 6 paper bills with checks each month, switching to e-services could save you over $30 per year. Just as important, it also saves an estimated 12 square feet of forest from deforestation, 91 pounds of greenhouse gasses, 22 gallons of water and 2 pounds of paper!
Plus, you can access your account information, pay bills, make transfers and check your balance from anywhere you can access the internet! It’s easy to make the switch and well worth it. Don’t waste another day, or paper statement. Find out now from your financial institution about how you can switch to e-services.
