Times They Are A Changing…As Are My Credit Card Due Dates?

I came home from my Christmas travelling to all of my monthly credit card statements, how delightful.

Three of them have changed their due dates from the 15-16th to the 14th of the month.

This is a real pain as I get paid on the 15th of the month so they will always be late and always incur a late fee. Grrr.

I actually thought I must have assumed the dates were after the 15th, but I checked last months statements and they have actually changed.

I’ll be calling them over the next day or so to see if I can get them changed back, otherwise I’ll need to make double minimum payments on all of them in January to get a month ahead to avoid the late fees ongoing (keeping one set of minimum payments aside for the February due date)

I've also noticed the interest rates slowly creeping up on them with no warning at all from the banks themselves about the changes, very sneaky.
