Financial Tips - Credit card trick.

Please read the fine print thoroughly.

The late payment charge is 1% of the total outstanding balance as at statement date, subject to a minimum of RM5 and maximum of RM50.

I was flipping my credit card statement when i stumble upon this fine print. Then I found out that I've make a miserable mistake. Just because of mising the the figure RM14.20 I was penalized for RM42.84. It might be not a large sum of money but it can make us a millionaire...seriously...(4D,6D.... for that sense)

Let look how this happen;



May statement;

Min. payment = RM214.20
Payment done = RM200.00
outstanding bal=RM 14.20






June statement:

Previous bal. =RM4284.07
late charges =RM 42.84 (1% of Pre. bal), due to outstanding balance(short payment) of RM14.20 in May.

Lesson from the scenario;

1. Always pay your minimum balance on time.
2. Never pay less than minimum balance not even a single sen
3. Make sure to keep track on spending and payment thoroughly.

* start charting down all the financial interests/charges arising from credit card every month. The figure will increase your headache.

I think u got it wrong Jay. The 1% percent was imposed on your overall prev. bal. in May that is RM4,284.07. Correct me if im wrong. TQ

I fully agree with your tips there. Credit card is helpful to have, but you can be a slave of it if you are not careful :-)

thanks for the tip... i guess i did the same mistakes before... it unfair for us.

Jay said...

the lesson is, in financial matter we must be calculative, observant and take close attention to interest rate charges especially when come to loan and borrowing. fine print is very crucial sometime. even few point different in rate charges can means a lot. Thank for those who have read and give feedback

oh, my gosh.. that's a lot of money for just missing out to pay 14.20 (almost double). I agree with you, always read the fine print because that is very important. thanks for sharing the tips. i havent tried it because I always pay my due on time.

by the way, thanks for the comment

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
