Get Reminders About Important Dates
As the human memory has been known to fail from time to time, you might enjoy having little reminders about certain dates. For instance, some banks offer alerts that notify you when a due date for a credit card bill or utility bill is coming up. If you're working to build your credit score, this feature could be most valuable to you, as paying bills on time has a significant impact on credit.
If you use online bill pay, you can also sign up for alerts to notify you when a payment has been sent or scheduled to be sent, fails to process, or when an automatic payment is about to expire.
