No Auto bill pay setup online for other banks

Unless you already have a Wells Fargo Checking or Savings account, you cannot set up automatic monthly payments on their website! If you go through all the help pages you'll find this out....you have to ask for a form, they mail it to you and send it back. Then you have to depend on them to set it up for you. And I'm sue you'll have to go through that whole last century process any time you want to make changes to your auto monthly payment. This can only be a purpose made maneuver on their part to exert pressure/force you to have to start banking with them. And if they don't get that desired end I'm sure that they've calculated that they will make some nice coin on late payment fees from people who came from modern card companies that make it easy to set up auto payments. In the end, they've created this lack of an auto payment option purposely to either a.) manipulate people into starting bank accounts with them or worse b.) to take advantage of people. If you are already banking with wells Fargo this is probably an OK card, but otherwise steer clear.
