cnet – Verizon Wireless: Yep, that’ll be $2 to pay your bill online

There’s news out that Verizon Wireless wants to charge me $2 every time I pay my bill online using the single pay option. That means, when I get my bill, I’ll be charged a “convienence fee” of $2 for going online and paying on their website. However’ if I pay by check, through the mail, or sign up of auto bill pay, I won’t get charged.

Whaaat???? What kind of nonsense is this?  So you’re saying that it would be cheaper for me to send in my money, as a check, through the mail?

This ranks right up there with Netflix’s price increases…and the nickle & diming airlines…But it makes little sense since they’re giving other options to pay.

Update (12/30/11):  Now according to CNN, Verizon is scraping the $2 due to “customer feedback”. What kind of feedback did they expect from customers?!?

Update (01/16/12):  Got my Verizon Wireless bill. It’s up $1.75 anyways due to “administrative charges”, Fed surcharges, and taxes. What a crock.
