Credit One interest question

To those who have or have had a Credit One CC, how does the interest work? I know there is no grace period, but when do they actually charge the interest? When the statement cuts?

 

The reason I am asking is because I just paid off my entire balance, which was $75 for the annual fee and $90+ I used for a purchase. The annual fee was due 6/1 with no interest added and the $90 hadn't even hit with a statement yet. when I made my payment for the entire balance, I owe $0 and have my full $300 CL available.

 

So I am thinking if you pay before the statement cuts there is no interest?

At statement cut. The only way to avoid carrying a balance reporting is to call in before the statement posts and get the payoff amount.

Youll always pay interest on the card no matter what. Thats why it is a low grade subprime card.

I does not matter when you pay it, interest hits on the statement cut.

Re: Credit One interest question

well the first statement had already cut for the AF, and they apparently didn't charge interest on that at all, seems they may not on just fees, only purchases.

 

So I guess on the next statement I will see an interest charge on the $90 purchase I used this month, even though it's paid. So a few dollars of interest on that amount will be on my new statement?

Re: Credit One interest question

I agree--you WILL see the interest. There is absolutely no way around it. I've has the card for 6 years so I know from experience.
