I checked and double checked. It didn't go through, nor did the $1 account check. For some reason the entire transaction failed when I did it. I'll still keep checking for the next couple of days, though.
It think my transaction failure and your non successful notification are different, though possibly related, problems.
If you can't make a payment online you should still be able to make a payment over the phone with a rep.
As for your internet being "down for a while", that's a whole different issue. If your internet is down, you should start your own post to get help with that particular issue.
You can request that they not keep the info for auto payments. If you did request that and they kept it anyway, then that's not good. If you ever have to make a payment over the phone again, for whatever reason, and request that they don't keep the info, you can sign into your account afterward and check there to see if there is anything on file for the auto payments. There should be nothing if they don't keep it.
