American Express has a definition of “electronically” I haven’t heard before

By | October 16, 2009

I recently received a letter from American Express confirming that I’d enrolled in online bill payment.  I received the letter on paper, in an envelope, with a stamp on it, in the mailbox on my porch.

The final sentence of the letter, all the way at the bottom, below the signature, reads as follows:

You are receiving this information electronically because you have indicated your desire to do so via your acceptance of the Pay by Computer terms and conditions.

I wonder if this definition of “electronically” has something to do with the South African company that recently sent a bunch of data by carrier pigeon faster than the country’s biggest ISP could have sent it.
