I'm looking at my statement from my Bank of America / MBNA credit card (whatever the thing is, I'm snowballing it.)

You're making perfect sense here. But I don't understand how they work, either.

Anyway, unless something changed since your statement came out, your interest rate will show up under the heading of "Finance Charge Schedule", down there where it says "Annual Percentage Rate for this Billing Period". While you're looking, it won't hurt to check what day the payment is due. I've caught MBNA changing my due date, making it earlier than I expected, without warning or explanation.

Alternatively, you can always check your account online, assuming you've made the transition to their truly annoying setup (which sent me back to paper.)
