Intuit is poised to buy Check Inc., a bill payment service for $360 million, the Wall Street Journal (registration required) reported Monday night. Palo Alto, Calif.-based Check Inc. claims 10 million people use its advertising-supported mobile app to track and pay bills on time — i.e. without late fees.
Intuit, Mountain View, Calif., has been rolling up a roster of finance-related software startups including inventory tracker software Lettuce earlier in May, and tax-advice help company DocStoc late last year.
Check includes some functions that overlap with those provided by Mint, the popular personal finance tracker Intuit bought five years ago for $170 million.
