I sent my payment to my CC company 7 days before the due date (as I usudo) and this time I was told that the payment was lateand thus I was charged both late payment fee and a fatfinancial charge. They agree that it is not my faultbut still want waive the charges. Is this a commonpractice of CC companies or just this particular company?Hi Jay,Unfortunately, this is the usual way it works. This is why it's so important to get the payment in on time, as even one day will be considered late. I think it's more unusual if a company waives the late fee, actually.In my opinion, sending in payment 7 days ahead is cutting it close--too close. You're giving a max of 6 days for them to receive and process it, and I've had mail delivered that took longer than a week. It happens.I'd make sure to get payments sent out with a larger lead time, or you might want to consider online banking.Tony...but I still am...Off2Aruba
