BTW, I use my rewards card every chance I get. But you can bet I check my balance on-line several times a week, and I verify my due date every time. I'll take their money, but I don't trust them an inch.

Nor should you, especially when they are wont to move the due date forward without notice (or at least, buried in the fine print if notice was given).

I pay my card off every month, haven't paid any interest of fees in years. Sometimes I pay the bill as soon as it arrives, but often I let it sit for several days, the longer to gather interest in ING on the money that'll pay the bill. But they almost got me a few months ago, when I almost didn't notice that the due date on a bill had been moved forward by a full week. Sneaky SOBs.
