    Tuesday’s Tip with Amanda: Save a Tree and Pay Online

    As a kid, I remember the excitement I felt when getting a card in the mail from my Oma (German for Grandmother). I loved racing to the mailbox to see if there was anything for me. Now, as a responsible bill paying adult, it’s not as exciting! If you’re anything like me, you prefer the ease of viewing and paying your bills online.  This is why Windstream gives customers the option of online billing.

    Paying your bill online saves time and money and is simple to get started. All you need is your Windstream account number and billing zip code. Then, just go to www.windstreamonline.com and click the 'Register for Access' link. After creating a username and password, you can quickly view your account balance summary or an electronic copy of your monthly billing statement. You can also see and print the last 12 months of billing statements by selecting 'View Invoices'. 

    For your convenience, you can also 'Go Paperless' and receive your Windstream billing statement via email if you choose. Once your billing statement is available, an email will be sent letting you know it’s ready for your review. After reviewing, just click 'Submit' to complete the payment. 

    Windstream also offers the option of Auto Pay. Auto Pay electronically transfers funds from your checking or credit card account to pay your Windstream bill. Once you are ready to pay your bill, you will have the option to make a one-time payment or set up Auto Pay. When you enter your information, you can choose the date your payment is made. It’s that easy! You can also change or cancel AutoPay from the same menu at any time. If you have questions on your billing statement, Live Chat or Wendy are here to help answer your questions. 

    Windstream Online is billing made easy, so check it out!

    Now for a little fun, but I might be showing my age…
    Some of my favorite movies are turning 30 this year. In honor of the occasion, here are my top 5 (in no particular order) all-time favorite 80’s movies turning 30:

    The Muppets Take Manhattan – This is a great story with some of the best cameo appearances like Gregory Hines and Liza Minnelli. Plus, (spoiler alert) Kermit and Miss Piggy marry in the end which in my opinion is the ultimate end to a Muppet movie.

    The NeverEnding Story - Possibly the best kid adventure story of the 80’s complete with a princess. I have also always wanted a luckdragon like Falkor.

    The Natural - Hands down the greatest baseball movie. It’s a feel good movie that I watch every year before baseball season. I love cheering on Roy Hobbs.

    Ghostbusters - Besides wanting a proton pack of my very own, I thought this movie was so funny and entertaining. Rest in Peace, Egon. I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

    The Karate Kid - Who didn’t want to learn Karate from Mr. Miyagi? With great dialogue and music, this movie was delightfully cheesy and wonderful.

    Check out these 80’s classics and enjoy. Thank you, 1984.
