- Due date
- Credit card bills have a due date. If your credit card payment does not arrive -- and get posted -- by the due date, you will be charged a late fee. It's important for credit cardholders to watch their payment due dates, since they sometimes change. Some credit card issuers allow their customers to set their own due dates.
