The minute it says APPROVED Smiley LOL

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

I did. Normally, I don't really even pay attention to due dates & when the statement cuts because I always make a payment when I get my paid. But with my new BoA BBR card, you have to let a balance post to each statement, so I'm trying to make sure I have all of my ducks in a row to make sure I pay no interest ever.

 

@JollehRoger Thanks!

You have to pay the statement balance by the due date to not pay interest.
