What If You Could Always Pay Your Bills On Time? You Can with ActiveHours

by Liza Corbo

You know the old saying that says more week than there is money? I cannot count the times when I have gotten paid from work only to find that I was short on money paying the bills. Then of course, you have to wait until the next payday to finish paying everything, and by then — you can pretty much guarantee that there is going to be a late fee.

What if I told you that there was a way to keep from having to pay any late fees and always pay your bills on time? Activehours is a website that addresses that very issue. This site was created with families in mind who might need a little extra pay at the end of their work week.

 

Activehours helps unlock the value of your hours worked. The best part about Activehours? Technology allows them to offer their service to consumers at practically no cost. They say practically because, of course, there are always some (even if only tiny) costs associated with providing any service — and they don’t charge fees or interest (though they do accept voluntary tips). As you know, a bank would probably charge you more than $30.

Another way to think about it is that they separate the hours from your workweek the same way iTunes separates songs from their albums. Or the same way digital cameras separate pictures from a digital “roll” of film. Activehours similarly makes it possible for you to access just one hour of work, rather than having to wait two weeks to get it all at once.

Better yet, you even get to use your own bank account. No switching over to something different to use the service. When you want to access your pay, you can go to Activehours to select the hours that you want sent directly to your bank account. The money will be in your account as early as the next morning. On your next payday, Activehours gets paid back out of your paycheck.

Activehours currently works with individuals who earn hourly wages, so their reach is pretty broad. Already they’re working with employees from major retailers like Walgreens, Pizza Hut and Anthropologie.

I just looked into ActiveHours and noticed that they have no site security. I wouldn’t recommend giving them all of your banking information until that issue is fixed. It does seem promising though to avoid fees.

Hi Terin,
We appreciate the comment. You’re right, we were working out some fixes on the website, but we’ve now got secure encryption on every page. You can see that from the “s” in https at the beginning of the web address and the lock sign. Hope you’ll give us a try! Feel free to email us at support@activehours.com, we’re happy to answer any more questions.
Thanks!
Shadiah
