What determines a statement closing date?

What determines the closing date for a credit card statement?  Is it 30 days after your approved for an account or pre-determined date that they use?

Depends on the lender.  With big lenders, usually set when they send out card.  Not sure why big deal as you can change statement date.

and yes i had this probelm that i sent money out the day the statements came out (not knowing they did because it takes a day for them to accept payment) and 2 new accounts reported balances =/.

Just call them and ask to the change payment due date. Statment usually closes 4 to 6 days after payment due date.

Re: What determines a statement closing date?

I've had a few of my statement closing dates changed including my car loan and AT&T. DirecTV doesn't do it.

can't really consider AT&T and directv as they aren't credit products.  Most lending products let you change statement dates.  Notable exceptions include small cu who might have same statement date for everyone, and mortgages and installment loans.

No, just pointing out my experience with them.

Due dates can not vary (by Law). But statement dates can vay, but they must  meet the minimum days notice of amount due.
