Changing Monthly Due Date for your Credit Card

Most credit card companies will let you change their card’s monthly due date. Doing so may help you spread your expenses more evenly within each month. Just remember, if you end up calling in and getting your monthly due date changed, take note of it so you don’t forget and miss a payment! Also, changing the credit card’s monthly due date may only be allowed once during a specific period of time.

What’s a foreign transaction fee?

Some credit cards charge a fee (typically between 1% and 3%) for every purchase someone makes in a foreign country or through a bank based abroad. If you’re shopping for a new credit card, you may want to consider which ones have foreign transaction fees and which ones don’t, especially if you travel abroad.
