The 7-eleven is not just a convenience chain store where we can drop by for some snacks and Slurpees. It is open 24/7 not only for hungry stomach or refreshments but it is a place where we can beat our due date for some bills forgotten to be settled in banks during banking hours or in other payment centers with cut-off time.
On banks and other payments, they do accept bills payment but they have their own respective cut-offs. Sometimes it is hard to line up because banks are filled with depositors too while payment centers do have many customers paying their bills. At times we will be going out, we think of our bills that need to be settled so we can drop by in one branch among the many branches of 7-eleven.
Bills payment is not hard to make at 7-eleven especially if time and due date are concerned. It is open 24 hours 7 days a week. All I need to do is bring the statement of account and the money, drop by at one branch, settles it and presto I'm done with it.
