Re: Horrible Barclays experience

I learned this "ALMOST" the hard way.
That's why I pay a day or two AFTER the bill becomes available. I onced paid one of my cards the day BEFORE the due date and realized it wasn't posting the same day even though I had scheduled it for that day. NICE.
Now I make sure if I can't do it a day or two after the cycle becomes available, I make sure it's at least a week in advance.
Sucks that this happened while at a hotel as well. Major blowage.
