Enjoy the Ease of Auto Pay!
Automatic Payment enables you to arrange for payments to your AmeriCU credit card account from your checking or savings, without the need to ever mail a check. With Auto Pay, you’ll never have to worry whether or not you remembered that monthly bill. AmeriCU will automatically deduct any one of the following payment options on your monthly due date:
- a payment amount equal to the total balance due
- a designated payment amount (you choose)
- minimum payment due (or $10, whichever is greater)
To enroll, simply mark the box on the application form and indicate your payment preferences.
AmeriCU uses the “average daily balance" method to calculate balances (excluding new purchases).
