Discount — payments posted by the 10th

Discounts are available to members when the payment is received by cut-off times on the 10th of every month (or the first business day following the 10th if the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday). Credit card payments are accepted until 4:30 p.m. daily. If setting up a credit card payment with a new card, the cardholder is required to present personally in the office with identification to confirm identity and sign an authorization form allowing BUECI to charge the credit card.
