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.

Question, since yesterday was a national holiday, should my Friday Billpays (before 7pm), show up today? I did two of them and they haven't posted yet. Anyone that did a billpay on Friday before 7pm have their billpay post already?

You have to always do +2 business days for Next Day. I did the same thing this morning expecting my Sunday BP to be available this morning. But, it won't hit until Thursday since the clock starts from Tuesday.

Still trying to figure out the AmEx game with MoneyGram BP (without having my regular WM CSRs kill me for wasting their time...). Today I tried to pay Biz Plat and SPG Personal with MoneyGram biller code 14398 "AMEX STANDARD 2-3DAY (14398)." Both came back with invalid account number. Next I had her try AMEX PLATINUM 2-3DAY (14399) with my Biz Plat and same error. Sigh. Guess I will resort to the PAY ANY CC option at 4.99 or whatever. An added $1.25 per $500 VGC isn't all that much, but would prefer cheaper option if I could make it work. I'll still be paying just a bit more than 1cpp per Starpoint which is well worth it in my book.

I've tried the Amex gold biller code and received the invalide account message. I'm not sure what entity processes the pay any cc payments.

Anyone know if BOFA Consumer Loans works to pay off AS Personal and/or AS Business Card?

There also seems to be an option when searching Bank Of America that is simply called "Bank Of America". Any idea what that will work on?

Ask the cashier to look up "Bank of America Credit Card". I tried bOfA consumer loans but came back as invalid. I was able to pay my alaska personal card using "Bank of America Credit Card" as a biller name. It will also ask for the zip code on the bill. I paid $1 for 3-day delivery

I know that selecting BOFA Credit Card works but was specifically asking about Consumer Loan and BOFA stand alone.

Thanks for your response anyways.

BofA consumer did not work on my Asiana biz card; haven't tried any others with that biller.

Do MoneyGram BPs also have a 5 payments per rolling 30 days restriction? Finally got my SPG to work using AmEx Next Day (14554), at a cost of $4.99 - not ideal but acceptable given my current need for Starpoints. If there is a five payment limit, will likely add a few AUs to account. Thanks!

Both options do NOT work on AS Biz or AS Personal.

I think many people might not even try to pay amex using bill payment for a long time. So you can provide the DB after 5 payments .

Based on ur post i tried to do a trial run for spg using money gram payment for 4.99 , after how many days , the money is get paid to amex ? its been 2 days since i paid it and didnt reflect . I paid 2 days before at 5 pm est.

Its good to know i can pay amex - 2000 $ for just 3.12 $ more than visa and i can skip one intermediate step- MO deposits at bank
