Pending Charges

I just used my BB rwz mc to pay a bill just for the points.  I have the money in my checking account.  It is ok to just pay the pending amount shown on your account or is it better to let it post before paying it, or does it not matter either friggin way?

Re: Pending Charges

As you can read in all the threads here, the consensus is that it's better to pay *almost* everything, and let something between 1% and 9% of your CL post. Then, of course, you pay in full as soon before the due date.

Re: Pending Charges

Some banks don't allow you to pay "pending" charges. I know Chase doesn't. You could try and see what happens.
