New Online Payment Management Tool from U.S. Bank

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Good news for U.S. Bank customers: the company has a new online tool to help consumers make savvier choices about personal finances.

ScoreBoard is an online expense-reporting tool that gives folks access to trending and reporting data. They can monitor their credit card spending, compare it to larger consumer trends, and plan their future purchases. Easy-to-read graphs and charts show a clear picture of monthly spending, credit card purchases by category, and payments. Travel expenses, home improvement, and fuel spending can all be pulled out and tracked. Customers can also download their spending reports in HTML format, in Excel, or in PDF form.

Cliff Cook, senior vice president of payment services at U.S. Bank, said the tool is unique because customers can “gain insight into how their spending trends compare to previous years.” He said the service would help consumers make better financial decisions and plan for the future.

Credit card tools are a huge help online

Many credit card issuers offer excellent tools via their customer service pages and online account services pages. People with good credit can keep that credit good, and folks who need some help can easily find it. Things like debt calculators and balance transfer calculators let people figure out how much they’re paying in interest, how long it will take to pay off debts, and whether they can save money by doing a balance transfer.

Having good credit is a result of responsible credit card use; things like making payments on time, not maxing out your card, and having a long and solid credit history all help folks maintain a high credit score. Using online tools can help people track all these things, and empower them to improve their credit if they want to.

Paper statements going the way of the past

Now that so many people are becoming comfortable with logging into their accounts online, people have less need of actual paper statements from their companies. Online account centers can offer more information, in a more dynamic format, that the traditional paper statement.

Debit cards, prepaid cards, and credit cards can all generally be accessed online. Any information folks are used to finding on a statement they would have once gotten in the mail can easily be found online. And new tools like this one from U.S. Bank are making it easier and easier to access and manage your account, from anywhere.
