I was recently approved for a Discover secured card. Will the online system allow me to make a payment for part of my balance before my first statement cuts? I realize I will still owe a payment once the statement does cut.
I've never had a problem paying before the statement date nor have I had problems making multiple payments in a cycle.
+1, neither have I.
Back when my Discover was still secured with only a $500 limit, I occasionally ran over $2000 through it within a month period. But my actual statements never showed more than $50 owed. I obviously was able to make multiple payments within that period. If a balance is shown on your online account, you can make a payment towards it on any day you like no matter what your last statement said or when the next one will cut.
You should be fine.
