@GabeU I'm pointing out that having the due date on the same day the statement is created seems out of the norm to me. Especially when Hughesnet deducts the amount before I get notified the statement is ready to view online; the amount was literally posting to my financial institution before the email showed up. While this appears to be Hughesnet's business practice, it does not appear to be an industry standard. Most services like Hughesnet (including Utilities, Cell Phone providers, Cable Companies, etc) will produce the statement first, mail a paper copy or electronic copy, and then deduct the AutoPay amount X number of days after the statement was created; not the same day. And, yes, while the Hughesnet statement amount will be relatively consistent each month, it still can vary by pennies due to what you pointed out. But never rule out the possiblity of a billing error. The developers better make sure they get the decimal point in the right spot. Also, what if I wanted a printed statement instead of being "paperless", and I want to remain on AutoPay. I'm not sure that is even an option for a Hughesnet customer, but let's go with it. Will my statement get printed and mailed and my AutoPay amount deducted all on the same date? Thus, I would receive my paper statement 3-5 days after I've been charged? Again, I don't need extra time to pay. I don't need to be taken off AutoPay. Yes, I am venting. My point is Hughesnet created the statement the same day my AutoPay was deducted. Obviously I'm not used to that. This is more of a suggestion to Hughesnet hoping they would reconsider their business practice. Let's leave it at that unless a Hughesnet employee has any constructive feedback. My apologies for posting to a Community Forumn. I tried this because the form to submit directly to Hughesnet Customer Support has a cap on the amount of text you can type.
