Paying bills when everywhere is closed

Recommended Posts

Due to Corvid the 3bb kiosk at Kad Suan Keow is closed as I assume all are for how long who knows. To keep from being disconnected for not keeping up on payments where does one go to pay?

When I do go I pay about 4x or more times the billed amount when possible.  That way I have a credit which will be available to pay future bills without my going anywhere.  Works great for phone company long distance paid at the post office but not possible for everything.

Got my new card from 3BB that u use to pay in a 7-11 etc, but I messed it up taking the laminate off so the wife went to see if it would work in Tesco, no problem. only 10 charge but 7-11 charge 15 baht, robbing gits.

I was paying 749 for 200/200 I think, but my speed was nowhere near that, so once the year contract finished I told them to change back to the 631 per month deal.

As my old and revered finance lecturer used to say, 'pay all bills as late as possible,  Why give free money to utility companies and deprive yourself of the interest and the cash flow'?

worried about paying my 900 baht bill for 30 kbps download speeds from 3bb, would not be fun to be without internet at these times!

Convenience and economy.  Cheaper to make one trip and pay one time payment fee than it is to make multiple trips and fees.  True because bill is small compared to cost of transport.  Even a large company experiences costs for making a payment which could be prohibitive for making $10-20 payments.

 

Your finance lecturer was most likely correct in the advice about paying large bills.  He was also talking about a time when you actually did get interest on deposits which mostly does not apply now.  Nobody is getting 4% on their working capital accounts like we were 20 years ago when your finance book was writen and many are paying because of negative interest which is quite widespread.

 

So I have a some thousands of baht  out in advanced payments, total less than 10k.  The interest on that is a few stang or nothing and the effect on my cash flow is nil.  If a few thousand baht is significant for your cash flow, you need a new job.

all of 'my' cash is significant, to me.

Micro manage, kit nieow or don't have much?  Micro manage is like "penny wise pound foolish", didn't your revered finance instructor warn you about that?
