Amazon 0%

So last June I purchase a projector from Amazon and they were offering 0% for 12 months with their credit line, I took it. Today I happened to login my account to see when the promotion ended (just to remind myself that it really was 12 months and not 6). It has a column of Accrued Interest Charges. I haven't missed a payment so I am not sure what that column is. Does it show what interest I would pay if I don't pay the balance by the end of the promotional period?

Re: Amazon 0%

Yes. If you have a balance after 12 months, you pay 12 months of interest.

In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.

Yes that is the way it works, so best to pay it off a month or so early just to be safe, you don't want to get hit with $250 interest surprise.

Re: Amazon 0%

I just wanted to make sure that that's what it was. I figured it would be the interest amount they would charge if I didn't pay it before then, but I wanted to be certain hehe. Thanks!

Re: Amazon 0%

As someone already said, pay that thing off a month early and get some kind of confirmation for evidence. I missed the pay off date on one of these deferred interest deals on a $2,000 TV I bought at Best Buy and got slammed with some ridiculous amother of interest, $600+ as I recall. With enough complaining they took away the interest charges, but those promotions can be very dangerous.
