    confused about ATT prepaid charge date and payment date

    It appears ATT charges the auto-pay credit card 1 day before the actual payment due date?

    I was not on top of refilling my account with prepaid card balance thinking I had 1 more day to do it, and then my credit card got charged 1 day ahead of the actual payment date.

    The 30 day period cycle makes it harder to track exactly what the date is as well...easy to lose track.

    You get used to it. It charges the day before to ensure there are funds in account on renewal day, basically applies a credit balance to your account before, then "charges" the day of renewal from the credit balance... Apply your payment at least 3 days prior to renewal and no issues, even at 2 days sometimes the CC charge goes through.

    Thanks...now I plan to refill the balance as soon as the period rolls over so I don't forget. Sometimes it's just hard to keep track, especially with the craziness happening now.
