    Sheffield has been very good for me until last month I was a few days late with the payment and they called acting like I was a criminal. This after years of on time payments.

    I has Verizon do that to me. It's a phone bill, but still has to be paid. I was 3 days late and shut my phones and internet off. Guy was all arrogant. Tried telling him we just a 5 week early baby and she had to be put in Rochester because her lungs were not developed fully. Yes o am going to stop dead in my tracks to make sure its paid. **** happens. Got a superviser to turn them on and wave there 15 per line rehook fee.

    Like I said before. On the same day Sheffield denied me, ge gave me money. This happened twice. I think of ge were to get in there, more scags would be sold.

    I financed my trailer through Sheffield, they want 40 payments over the next 40 months or what not. Im going to pay it down in 6 and be done with it. But what really got me about them, is for online payments they want a flat $10 fee. If I payed every payment online on their payment terms, that's 400 bucks they charge you to get their money faster. Insane. Ive never seen an online payment fee so high before... a lot of places dont even charge, they want their money faster, no check handling, no postage etc.

    Just wanted to gripe about their online fee. Thats all. :usflag:

    I financed through Sheffield. I was approved in minutes with an 805 credit score. I pay through Bill Pay with my bank and it's transferred over the next day or two. Easy as pie for me.

    Online bill pay would be nice. The good ole country boy bank I use just got debit cards a year ago. I do the lawn at their locations so I will just have to wait till they get it.

    So do you think that this means you can get the 0% for 48 months plus the 20% off of a V-ride? Or is it either or?

    Since from my last years purchases I get fleet pricing this year. I also get the 0% for 48mos for the current promo. So if you are eligable for fleet you can also get 0% (my dealer checked into it). If you are not eligable for fleet check with your dealer.

    Sheffield does have an online autopay. I set mine up and it automatically withdraws my payment each month. No charge for doing that.

    Well as the OP stated don't they charge $10 per time to pay online?

    No additional charges on that. If I remember right,if you were doing a one time payment electronically there was a charge. If you set it up for auto pay I don't believe there is. I just went online and set the recurring payment on Sheffield, designated the amount and it comes out automatically each month....no additional charges.
