A paperless billing statement is an online version of your monthly billing statement. It contains the same information as the printed billing statement you receive in the mail. When you enroll in paperless billing statements, you'll receive an email notification every time there is a new billing statement ready for you to view, and instructions on how to make your payment. Going paperless is simple and safe. And, if you ever change your mind, you can go back to paper communications, free of charge.

You can enroll in paperless billing statements through your online Account Center here. Once you log in, you can access the enrollment function through one of these areas:

  1. Click on "Enroll in paperless statements" in the left navigation bar
  2. Click on "Switch to paperless statements!" in the Account News section of the Welcome Page
  3. Click on "Maintenance – My Profile" in the left navigation bar

From any of these locations, select the "I CONSENT TO RECEIVE MY MONTHLY BILLING STATEMENT ONLINE ONLY" button to enroll in paperless statements. Paperless statements typically begin with the billing statement following your enrollment in paperless. It is possible that you will receive one final paper billing statement.

To confirm you are enrolled in paperless statements, review the "My Profile" tab on your Account Center (you can find the link here). If your profile shows you are enrolled in paperless billing statements, you are likely receiving a paper statement for one of the following reasons:

  • If you recently enrolled in paperless statements, you may receive one final paper statement depending on when your account was last billed.
  • You will receive a paper statement if you are more than 30 days past due on your account as a payment reminder. Once your account is current, it will automatically go back to paperless.
  • If we cannot deliver email to the address on file, we will automatically resume mailing paper statements until you update your email address.

You will receive an email from the bank notifying you that your statement is ready to view. The email will contain a link that allows you to securely click through and log into your account.

In order to avoid a late fee, you must pay at least the minimum payment due by the payment due date. Any online payments submitted prior to 8 p.m. EST will be credited to your account on the same day. Please note that it may take up to two business days to complete the financial transfer from your personal bank account to your credit card account.

You may make a payment of any amount. However, it's best if you pay the minimum payment due as soon as possible in order to avoid accumulating additional late fees.

Late fees are assessed when you do not pay at least the minimum payment due by the payment due date. Any online payments submitted after 8 p.m. EST on your payment due date are credited to your account the next day, making them subject to a late fee. If you believe the late fee is in error, please call the customer care phone number found on the back of your credit card, or you may look it up here.

If you returned merchandise but still have a credit card balance, you'll need to pay the minimum payment due as shown on your billing statement. To avoid late fees, your minimum payment due must be paid by the due date shown on your billing statement, even if your returned merchandise credit is equal to or greater than the minimum payment due. See your Credit Card Agreement for additional information.

There is no fee for making online payments.

Currently, online payments are only accepted through United States bank accounts.

If funds have not yet been transferred from your bank account, you may be able to delete a scheduled payment, depending on when and how you make your request. Please call the phone number on the back of your credit card, or look it up here.

A pending payment is any payment scheduled but not yet posted to your account.

Online payment services are available 365 days a year, including weekends and holidays.

When making an online payment, it may take up to two additional business days for the funds to transfer from your bank account.
