All does not equal All Directv bills.
All equals ALL bills.
I'm with islesfan on this one. I know my DirecTV bill, Verizon bill, insurance bill, car payment, etc are all the same every month. I don't bother to look at them unless I notice that they took out a different amount for some reason, and then I look into why the amount changed, and take care of it if it was a billing error. I find it to be a waste of time to go over every bill every month when they are the exact same 99% of the time.
Now on the other hand I do keep track of my bank account and credit card accounts on a regular basis, so I notice pretty quickly if they get charged a strange amount and look into it right away.
I don't have automatic payment for any of my bills any more, so I do check at least the total on each one. If it hasn't changed significantly from the previous month I don't need to check any further.
Most bills show up with the amount paid last month printed somewhere.
I did pay attention a few years ago when DirecTV billed me for a non-returned DVR, which had been picked up by the tech. At that time I paid DirecTV though Verizon on an automatic billing basis. That was a mess to get straightened out. At one time the Verizon rep told me I'd have to arrange a three-way call with Verizon and DirecTV to fix the problem. At the time both companies had significant hold times before you could talk to anyone. DirecTV has improved significantly since then in reduced or non-existent hold times; Verizon has improved somewhat.
Another reason to follow up on a receiver return....
I work in a facility which does a great deal of mailing through the US postal service. Regularly we receive mail which is wrongly put in our baskets. A couple of days ago one of the items was an HR24 with an RMA label. Of course we redirect the mail but it probably increased the shipping time by at least one day.
I recognize all this, believe me I've had more than enough problems with the Post Office, but my main purpose in pointing this whole thing out is that DirecTV did receive my HR21 two days after I sent it, but they didn't seem to care. Had I not called, they would have charged me a non-returned fee on equipment that they admitted they had in their warehouse for a couple of weeks already.
You'd have to check them to notice a different amount, no? So, you're with me, correct?
I think that they revived the "Pony Express" just to deliver your package.
That wouldn't have mattered in this case as the fee was posted many days after the box had been received (and we know from the OP that the shipping time was two days).
No I don't check them. I check my Discover card bill which is what is used to pay them. As long as the charge on my Discover card isn't abnormal I don't look at my DirecTV or Verizon bill. I don't think I've looked at either of those in over 6 months. I do check my Discover card multiple times a week though.
