I just found out about a neat-o way to pay online without using credit OR debit cards. It's called eBillme. You use your bank's bill pay to pay for purchases, making it cash based! When you pay for an item online, choose eBillme at checkout, then you'll receive an email for your records. Then you log on to your bill pay account and pay the bill (that is, if you've added eBillme as a payee already). They also offer coupons and rebates right on their site. You are also able to combine services from them and sites like Shop at Home, where you would then get even more off your purchase.
I have not tried it yet, but I plan to sign up, and I'll let you know how it goes. After reading that my own bank is in charge of protecting my information, (which makes sense because they are the ones the payment is being authorized through) I feel this could be a wonderful tool for those of us getting out of debt or those who don't like to pay online with a debit card. Click here to find out more about eBillme. Also, if anyone has used this service, let me know what you think.
