Quick question… for those who use a business credit card, is your due date the same every month? (I just found out the hard way that mine isn’t. Instead, it’s floating and can vary by as much as a week! Found this out by surprise when I went to pay my bill on time as usual… but already had a late fee sitting there!) I don’t see this with any of my other bills or cc’s so that’s why I’m asking.
I would call them since its your first late fee on the card and ask for it to be waived. Be very nice about it and ask tem to give you a break down of the bill due dates. Often companies will waive a fee once a year, hopefully yours will too! That is odd though, typically the business I work for has a monthly cycle. Perhaps you are reaching your credit limit too early?
No, I’m not near my credit limit. I pay twice a month to avoid anything like this happening. I’ve talked with them twice, actually. The second call was this morning. The 2nd rep told that the 1st rep was completely wrong— no such thing as a rolling 25-day due date. He put in a request to waive the fee, too, since I do pay twice a month and don’t have a history of being late. My mistake was the timing of my second payment in the month… I missed the new period by several hours. *sheesh* So now I have a plan how not to do that again, for sure!
