Benefits of paying your TDS bill electronically

TDS Online Bill Pay is the fast, free, and easy way to view and pay your bill. Let’s face it; paying bills online has become the norm.

Here are some advantages to paying online:

  • Schedule automatic bill payments so when you can go on vacation, there’s no worry about when the bills are due.
  • Pay your bills from anywhere in the world.
  • View past bills without having to keep old files of account statements.
  • Save on stamps and trips to the post office.

When looking at online payment options, TDS recommends customers use a banking account (like a checking or savings account) to pay their bill.  Checking and saving accounts do no expire like a credit card, which means you won’t have to spend time adding a new card to your account when it does expire.

Also, with the amount of credit card fraud these days it’s not uncommon for credit cards to be cancelled and reissued.  You’ll avoid all that if you set up online bill pay to withdraw from a checking or savings account.
