Re: Ford Credit payments...

I'd wait for the bill to be on the safe side.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Mastercard (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)

Grits ain't groceries and leases ain't loans.

There is zero benefit to you to pay  a lease ahead of time or off early.  They aren't loans and thus don't have an interest component like a simple interest loan.

If you want to build up a payment reserve, put it into a savings account.  If you want to roll the dice buy a share of AAPL through sharebuilder.com each month you have an extra payment available.    Or maybe some Spyders, Qubes or Diamonds.
