Advice From CardCritics: Why It’s Time To Ditch Your Store Credit Card

If you’re already a devoted customer, you might hold a Firestone Complete Auto Care credit card to take advantage of perks like six months of deferred interest. However, it’s important to stay on top of your credit card bills to reap the full benefits of this card. This includes making payments on time.

How To Make a Firestone Credit Card Payment Over the Phone

CFNA will let you pay your Firestone bill by phone using the number on the back of your card. It currently does not accept debit or credit card payments through the automated system, but you can speak with a customer service representative to make a payment with a debit or credit card. Note there is a $4.95 processing fee for this service.

How To Make a Firestone Credit Card Payment by Mail

If you prefer paying your bills through the mail, CFNA accepts paper checks and money orders, too. When mailing, include the payment coupon from your credit card statement with your payment if possible. If you don’t have the payment coupon, write your Firestone credit card account number on the check or money order to ensure your payment will be credited to your account. Here’s the payment mailing address:

P.O. Box 81344
Cleveland, OH 44188-0344

Set Up Automatic Payments for Your Firestone Credit Card

Credit First gives you the option to schedule up to six payments in advance. You can do this through its website. Just change the date for each of the payments you’re scheduling. The system will process the payment automatically on the scheduled day.

There is currently no way to set up automatic payments beyond six months, so remember to go back and set up more payments when your pre-scheduled ones run out.

What To Do If Your Firestone Credit Card Payment Is Late

Late payments can be made by any of the methods above. However, CFNA charges up to a $29 late fee when you miss a due date — and the fee increases to up to $40 if you haven’t made your minimum payments within the past six months. This can be costly over time and reflect poorly on your credit score. You can avoid this fee by paying your account on time each month.

In addition to knowing your due date, it helps to understand when payments are credited to your account. Payments made through the mail must be received by 5 p.m. EST to be credited to the account the same day. Payments made online or by phone must be made by 11:59 p.m. EST to be credited the same day.
