Need to send a large payment to repay a loan (QP is out). Is the best way to do this via bill pay? Some other way?
Can send a wire too, but that will cost you each a few dollars.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

More than a few, Chase charges an arm and a leg. Never signed up for CPB, then it would be free :(.
However, appears that Chase has ACH payments now, which appear to be free

You sure ACH is free?

Wires are free for all CPC, not just PB.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Right, never signed up CPC at all. Just never got around to it. Really annoying because the limit is like $25K for a wire.

I'm not sure what wire limit is, but I think it's either 100k or 250k.

Pity about CPC; it's useful in Israel.

You can make a series of payments. Each one under the limit.

One of the best ways to transfer in the MS game is member to member. Certain CUís are great for this. Payment is instant.
I just found a new supply of forks!

More than a few, Chase charges an arm and a leg.
$25-$40 to send, $15-$25 to receive. Thatís nothing for the safety and security of a wire over online bill pay (bill pay, Chase deducts the funds as soon as you initiate payment, and takes 4-5 business days for recipient to get (snail mail physical check). If check gets lost in transit, money is out of your account for a few weeks until they are willing / able to do a stop payment.).

Alternatively, you can UPS/Fedex the recipient a physical check..

Is just sending a paper check not an option?

Will probably end up doing that, but takes a long time from Israel for mail to get to America (just got a piece of mail from America mailed on November 7, delivered December 4)

Strange. Added ACH payee on Chase. Now it says "We were unable to complete your request. You do not have any eligible Pay From accounts."
