I don’t get it. Every other credit card I have, be it Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCPenney fercrissake, can process an online payment from my bank in 24 hours. But not Washington Mutual.

I’m at a loss to explain this. I paid three bills last night after closing time (8 pm). Two of them are noted as withdrawals effective 3 April for payments on 4 April. WaMu, paid at the same time, is effective 3 April for a payment on the seventh. (And it’s not one of those situations where the bank has to cut a check and send it on: those take five days and are clearly identified as such.) This won’t make me late or anything, but it’s perplexing.

    The more I hear about them the happier I am that I don’t have their card. That is ridiculous.

    I didn’t either; they bought another bank and took over the accounts.
