    How do most of you keep up with your bill reminders?
    Right now I have reoccurring events on my google calendar, and I also get notifications with Pageonce Assistant.

    Any other suggestions?

    I get e-mail reminders from Mint.com as well. But since I generally pay all my bills at the end of the month (for the following month due dates), they're pretty much redundant.

    Mint is pretty cool, though they don't have an android app yet. You might want to check out pageonce.com, which is similar and does have an android app available. (Their app is called "Personal Assistant.")

    I also use the Google Calendar method, though I don't love it. I used PageOnce for a day back on Blackberry and it was horrible, haven't tried it on Android yet, maybe it's time!

    Yeah, the Pageonce Android app is in real need of some work ... I use it basically because it's the only one out there.

    Mint is supposed to release an Android app shortly, and I'm looking forward to see what they come up with.

    Where did PageOnce come from? is it a stock app? I just noticed it when viewing my apps through a link from "Appbrain.com". I do not see it in my Manage Appications> All tab. I want to get rid of this.

    Any further info to share on this app or process?

    Reminder? Who needs a reminder? When the bill comes in the mail or via email I just pay it. Period!

    I have Remember the Milk set up to remind me monthly, otherwise I might not notice if a bill got lost in the mail.

    Mail or email? Who needs mail or email? Bills are due at the same time each month. I just pay them when they're due. Exclamation mark! :p

    Doesn't anyone use their online BillPay through their bank? Mine has a "notification" function that will send an email or I can just set them up as "recurring". All for FREE.

    I split my bills by paycheck. I keep up with them in an excel spreadsheet, then pay them online thru the bank.

    LOL smarty pants!

    I just pay them as I get them. I don't want to wait until bill due date. Paying it and filing it gets it off my desk. Granted I'm (credit) debt free and only have a few bills and housing to worry about.
