Paying early won’t save you any money on interest (as long as you have that grace period).
However, if you’re aiming to improve your credit scores rather than have more time to pay, paying your balance before the statement closing date can help because it lowers your overall credit utilization.
Is it best to pay off one credit card at a time?
Pay Off High-Interest Credit Cards First. Pay the minimum payment on all credit cards each month to avoid penalties. While some advocate for paying off your smallest debt first because it seems easier, you’ll save more on interest over time by chipping away at high-interest debt.
When paying off credit cards what is the best strategy?
There are two basic ways to pay off credit cards: either by paying off the credit card with the highest interest rate first or the one with the lowest balance first. To decide which strategy is best for you, think about whether you’d like to save money on interest or get rid of entire credit card balances quickly.
