Did the $1800 show on your 8/17 statement? If so, then yes, you must pay at least the minimum by 9/15. If you don't pay the full amount by 9/15, you will owe interest on the unpaid balance, and that interest due will show up on your 9/whatever statement. If it didn't show on your statement, and it only shows up online as your current balance, then it's not due on 9/15.

 

(btw, does it say somewhere that your next statement will drop on 9/19? Some banks due publish that figure.)

 

* yawns *

 


Nope, it just says Next Statement Date 9/19



That's the date you're looking for. Time your payments so that the balance (and therefore utilization) you want is achieved several days before 9/19.

+1 to MVV.

 

To repeat from earlier in this same thread:


haulingthescoreup wrote:

Statement date = posting date = drop date = closing date. These are all different from the due date, which is generally 2-3 weeks after the statement date. The due date is the date that your money (= the balance on the statement, or some portion thereof) is due.


So yes, your next statement will appear on the 19th.

Re: Ok I lied.  Hauling (or anyone) could you help me underst...

Ok thanks!

 

Can someone just verify that this is correct too:

 

 

Let's assume:

As of 09/19/11 my balance is $0/4000
Next Due date is 10/15/11

Next Statement date is 10/17/11

 

Any dollar that I spend after 9/19 will not be due on 10/15 but, if unpaid, will be reported on 10/17?
