    What title says..
    I thought this would be helpful to those of you who just want to make 10 dollars by signing up for paperless billing. I don't know about those of you who are already enrolled. Honestly, I think every companies should offer discount every months for customers who pay their bills thru their card or checking account. In worst case, you can always get the gift card and cancel the service.

    There should be a discount every month. Now I have to cancel paperless billing and sign up again to get my $10. I signed up too early. :mad:

    This reminds me of recycling.

    Corporations make you think you are helping the environment by recycling (which you are), but I am guessing they save a ton of money by using recycled paper or plastic to package their goods. And of course, that's their main concern.

    Exactly. I'm happy it's saving them money to do the environmental thing (if it encourages them to be environmental, hey, win on both sides!). Personally, I hate paper billing anyways, so much paper to keep track of (I'd rather save a copy to my computer's hard drive).

    How about travel points for paying your bill on time paperlessly, and extra points for paying early? ;)

    I signed up for paperless when I applied my company discount... Oh well. I can sign up for auto pay and get the $10 but I don't like that idea since my paydays are always different each month.

    :rolleyes:

    Of all the reasons to cut down more trees, "I want to screw AT&T" has to rank pretty low.

    I'm confused. Does this mean I can't go to AT&T machines and pay cash ? Or this just means I won't get my bill deliver into my mail box ? And will have to just check online.

    Paperless billing means you will get an email when it's due. You can pay online or anywhere else. Autopay will let AT&T withdraw money from your account when it's due.

    Let me break down how faulty your logic and attitude is.

    You are turning away getting $10.
    You are turning away getting $10 from a company which you are giving money to.
    So you will continue to pay the current rate and not get ANY credit by doing this. So you're in essence - giving ATT $10 instead of taking it from them.
    Your refusal to take their offer continues to force them to have expenses involved with printing and mailing you your statement which will continue to keep their overhead the same causing their rates to continue if not rise in the future to keep up with the cost of papered billing.

    You're brilliant.

    That's interesting my email also says $40, but guess what? They want Mastercard, which I was already using anyway.:)

    I checked and I did not receive any email about this and I logged in and I can't find anything about it.

    But it doesn't matter because I wouldn't take the offer anyway. I prefer paper bills and I find it quite irritating that almost every time I login to any service I pay for I am prompted to sign up for paperless billing.
