THIS IS A WIKI TO AN OLD THREAD THAT IS NO LONGER BEING MAINTAINED!

This is a new thread for 2017. The previous discussion can be found here.
The new thread for 2018 is here.

DETAILS:
Bill Pay cannot be done at a regular register. BP must be done at Customer Service/Returns or at the Money Center in stores that have it.
WM offers two BP services: CheckFreePAY and MoneyGram. The cashier can initiate CheckFreePAY by selecting Money Services followed by Bill Pay on the register for a fee of $1-1.88. Moneygram is $4.99.
ONLY 4 successful debit card swipes can pay for a transaction. ONLY 5 payments per 16 digit account number per rolling 30 days.
CheckFreePay (800) 676-6148. - Look up payments using CC number and time of transaction

Standard BP- Once your CFP account is set up, you can add CC. When you want to BP give them your phone# to look up your account under Money Services. They often get confused and think you want MG, but just say it is under Money Services. Make sure you get 2 receipts, one from WM and a small one from CFP showing the CC# and Biller name you paid.

WM App - The Money Services works in express lane for BP, but has issues making 2 or more payments in a row. Make one BP, then come back or do another trans, then another BP to avoid issues. Make sure you get a BP receipt in the app and it shows the BP info and the CC you paid before leaving the store.

Some tips: If you don't get a receipt and they have to print you one, make sure the CC you paid appears on the printed receipt. If not on receipt, call CFP with the manager to verify there is no payment processing. They can cancel any transactions and pay you in cash right away. If they cancel the transaction and their cash drawer opens, that means they should pay you in cash, if it doesn't open, the money will probably return to your cards. Not sure what happens on the same day? Watch their drawer when they cancel the transaction to see if it opens. If they say the money will return to your DC, make sure to write down the managers name in case it doesn't.

BUSINESS DAY transaction completion time is 18:59:59 EST (Holidays change post day)
Friday after 06:59PM EST, until Monday BEFORE 07:00PM EST arrives Tuesday
Tuesday BEFORE 7:00PM arrives Wednesday
Wednesday BEFORE 07:00PM arrives Thursday
Thursday BEFORE 07:00PM arrives Friday
Friday BEFORE 07:00PM arrives Monday
But when a next-day payment will post and be visible depends upon the CC issuer.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I saw a blogger was shutdown using BA+, possibly for WMBP. I use that card as well and use the points every month for cruise payments. I might stop using my citi card. It is hard to stop. lol

Hi Guys,

Is my understanding that you can BP at WM using Barclay or MC as a payee, will this can be done with Capital One?, can i use Capital One ($1.50) or MC ($1.88) ??

Thanks in advance.

Yes. You'll need the Barclays zip code to pay $1 (three-day) or $1.50 (next day). It is listed as barclaycard (lowercase) at locations here but some report it showing as bcard, which they can't find at locations here.

Carl, (page 301 post #4513), Capital One can be done using Capital One and Visa, just wanted make sure i can do MC instead of Visa, my guess is yes.

I do Barclay using MC, never try using Barclaycard, after seeing all A+ shutdowns i think i'll be under 10K.

Thank you for your help.^^

Always good to cash out your points each month because you might get shutdown with any cc.

Cheaper, yes. Why safer? Has Amex been known to shutdown for BP? I'd love to be able to pay $4k w/ my ST DL debit. And happy to pay the near $5 b/c I'm paying $4 anyway for 2x BP w/ CFP.

Had a weird one tonight. So I finished up 2 visa last month on the 11th. 5 payments each for 2 cards. This month I started on the 10th and got in payments each day until tonight when it said I was maxed out. Is this a fluke in the calendar where in it's catching up on the 31st day?

Can we get a survey going on what cc's we're paying and how long we've been paying them? I'm especially wondering how many folks are paying Chase/Barclay/Citi with success. With the threat of shutdown, I'm thinking I need to move off the Chase.

Chase Sapphire Reserved x2 since 10/2016
Chase Sapphire Preferred since 12/2015 (no payments in last 4 months)
Chase Ink Plus since 6/2014
Chase Freedom since 4/2014
Chase Ink Pref since 12/2016
Barclay AAdvantage since 10/2014 (no payments in last 8 months)
Citi Prestige since 11/2015 (no payments in last 4 months though)

My payments range from $1k-4k. Using ST DL debit. Haven't used VGC in at least a year.

Never used financial institutions' zip but my home zip. I think I read that on older threads (not barclay specifically...but CapOne/Citi or something). Annoyingly, barclaycard always asks for the zip every single time.
