Has this happened to you? You’re right in the middle of something: a meeting at work, your favorite TV show, unloading the dish washer… and you freeze. You’re overcome by a feeling of dread. Suddenly, you realize there was something important you were supposed to do. What is it? You wrack your brain. The kids’ homework is done. The dog has been walked. The cell phone bill has been paid. Wait a minute. Oh no! You didn’t make your loan payment!! OOOOOOOHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Questions race through your mind: What was my due date? How late am I? How can I get my payment made? WHAT SHOULD I DO???
Would you like to avoid this whole messy scenario?
Here are my top 3 recommendations for paying your loan at Heartland:
#1: Start an automatic payment. Set it and forget it! Set one up in online banking from your Heartland checking or savings account. Or, if your money is elsewhere, complete a brief form.
If automation isn’t for you, keep reading.
#2: Use mobiledeposit. If you read my last post, you are probably already using this service J Take a picture of a check and transfer the deposit to your loan—all within the mobile app.
