Just recently I got a new credit card because of a possible security breach, the second time this year already.
What I quickly found out was that between my Amazon Prime account, my utilities, and numerous subscriptions – there were about ten automatic payments I needed to update.
After about an hour of trying to figure out passwords (Does this one need a symbol or just a capital letter?) I realized that had I just used my checking account to pay my bills and subscriptions, I wouldn’t have to spend an hour updating credit cards.
So I decided to use my checking account, but that is when it hit me… what was my checking account’s routing number?
