Is the statement closing date the due date?
It’s easy to confuse your statement closing date with your payment due date. In short, your statement closing date refers to the last day of your billing cycle. Your payment due date is the deadline by which you need to pay the credit card issuer for the billing cycle if you want to avoid paying interest.
Can I pay my credit card on the next closing date?
Your credit card’s statement closing date is the day your card’s billing cycle ends. You’ll have to make your credit card payment on your card’s due date, which typically comes 20 – 25 days later. You must make your minimum monthly payment on your due date to avoid any late fees.
What happens if I use my credit card the day before the closing date?
Can I use my credit card between the due date and the closing date? Yes, you can use your credit card between the due date and the credit card statement closing date. Purchases made after your credit card due date are simply included in the next billing statement.
