The payment is due on the last day of the month.So I should PIF after the 6th but before the last day, correct? Or is it the other way around?Pay sometime between the 6th and the 25th to be safe. Other answers may vary.

Half of your total open accounts. Not the credit limit as that would be a real mess with 50% used!
