Thanks for the answers! The interest charge was very small- I was just not expecting it.

I've never used any cash advance before & probably never will again as this was hopefully a once-in-a-lifetime situation. I just had to wire money to my kids asap on a Sunday (no banks open). They were travelling cross-country, hit an elk & totaled their truck.


Cash advance fee is mostly there to cover ATM fee other operator charges. Interest on cash advance is immediately, with or without PIF.

OMG I hope they are ok....   you know, that's what CCs are for, and you're blessed to have been able to take care of the situation using the cards in your wallet


Thank you! They are both ok-neither walked away with even a scratch. The elk and the truck didn't fare as well, however. They were coming from Minnesota to California. The elk got them in Montana. I have now added both of them as authorized users on my cc's. I never realized how difficult it could be to get money from point A to point B outside of normal business hours. Many lessons learned and provisions made as a result. Yes, I do feel fortunate that I had the cash advance option even though it came with surprises (out of my own ignorance).

Re: Chase charged me interest on a paid-in-full balance

My Discover Motiva has a "cash over" option too that works at certain stores, like Kroger, and it's like the Wmt Discover "quick cash" option which I've actually and did not get charged a dime of interest/fees :-D

Bad thing with these options:
Wmt Discover has a $100 daily limit
Discover Motiva has a $120 daily limit



It's great that credit can be so useful!! I actually had to take a cash advance in July for an emergency and have since paid it off :-) yay!!!

Re: Chase charged me interest on a paid-in-full balance

NFCU does charge a 50 cent fee for CA, but no other fees if you get it at any bank that takes visa (and doesn't charge a fee) or at an nfcu branch.

 

Glad your kids are okay, that's what really matters :smileyhappy:

Is this right? I had to take an emergency cash advance against my Chase Freedom. I was charged a $39 cash advance fee immediately. I paid my entire card balance off before the due date. My statement just came out with an interest fee on it. I was under the impression that no interest is charged if paid in full?


Okay so i'm confused.  I get that the CA is charged interest immediately without any grace period, but you PIF the entire balance.  Shouldn't the balanace at the time you pay it show the full up to date balance?

yes and no. its like with mortgages. 

if you get it the 12th of sep they are charging your per diem interest. (the 12th to the 1st of next month)

same with cash advances. its x amount percent from the day you take it out to the day you pay it. even if pif. 

so like you said they charged interest because from the day you took it to lets say you pif your whole card in 7 days. 

they charge you 7 days worth of interest on the cash advance only. 

hope this helps. 

 

edit: missed the last question. and no because they only charge interest on the statement. they cant post per day interest on your transactions.

Dang, so thats messed up.  That is, if I understand you correctly.

 

 

So, if I log in to my account to pay my bill electorniclly (before the statement cuts), I am only shown the balance as of today minus the interest on the CA cuz they don't daily post that?

 

So then the statement cuts, and I am shown how much interest has accumulate on that CA?  

 

So, it can basically take two full statements to cut before I am actually done paying of the CA, right?

no. 

if you make a payment and pay the ca (say you pif everything on the card) 

once they recieve payment thats when they stop charging interest. 

it just doesnt post until the statement. 

so say you take the ca on the 1st and your statements ends the 21st. 

if you pay on the 7th in full and dont use the card the only thing that will show up onn the statement will be the interest. 

to my knowledge a ccc cannot double charge interest on interest. but i could be wrong on this.

Okay i get it. So i just won't be able to see what the interest is untill the statement actually cuts.  

 

Lesson I'm learning is stay away from CAs haha

Re: Chase charged me interest on a paid-in-full balance

If you want to PIF and your card let's you pay more than the current balance, just overpay by amount of the CA * [(APR/100)/365] * the number of days since the CA was taken out. Hope that helps.
