How can I pay my electric and gas bills using a credit card?
« on: January 29, 2016, 09:33:34 am »
Dear waygookins

How can I pay my gas/electric bills using my credit card?

January is a tight month, cash wise.
Oh and my credit card is Korean issued and I can't withdraw any money from the credit card itself.

Thank you

In a lot of countries you can pay for bills in a convenience store, using your card or cash. I've never heard of it in Korea but perhaps that an option?

There is a special machine at the bank (usually next to or near the ATM machines inside the bank) to use to pay for gas and electric bills, although I use a Korean debit card when I pay my utility bills using that machine. I've never had a Korean credit card before, so I can't confirm that it would definitely work when using that machine, but maybe it would be worth a try, if you can go visit a bank.

Also, there is a bank transfer option to transfer the money from your bank account to pay your bills (the bank account numbers to which you can transfer the amount you owe for your bills, are listed on the paper bills).

Have you tried the cash advance? I have a KEB credit card and I have that function. (If you have KEB, be careful when you put the card in the machine initially as your credit card can be tied to your debit account, which means that if you press the initial withdraw cash button you see, it's actually going to attempt to take it from your debit account, not your credit. You need to press the "credit card" button on the same screen to go into the screen where you can withdraw from your credit card)
