[ Edited ]

Your grace period on a charge starts after you have been billed for said charge (statement cut).

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.
