    Paying bills by cash 2nd Dec 17 at 1:19 PM
    Hi all, not sure if this is right place, so apologies if not.

    I have bills I would like to pay with good old cash so I don't have to pay the cash into the bank. My credit card co sends paper bills with giros attached to make payments at the PO or your bank, but the PO tell me they don't allow them to be used anymore and I don't have a branch of my bank locally. Any ideas?

    So you are quite happy yop waste money paying at the PO rather than putting money in a bank account?

    You wonder why you get accusations?

    I avoid cash machines chargin a quid.

    1. Stupid.
    2. Avoiding tax.

    Pick one.

    This seems like another thread about nothing.

    Post Office told OP he couldn't pay bill at Post Office, so OP paid bill at, erm, Post Office.
