My statement balance for my November bill is around $4000 and I paid it on the day it was due - Nov. 25. I had done lot of buying on this one credit card so my current balance on the card is up to $10,000. Can I pay the current balance today so that my eqn/$3000 spend posts in December? If the $10,000 gets put on the next bill due around Dec. 25 then my nights won't get done until after the year end. Is that a correct understanding for how the eqn per $3000 spend get tallied. Also - I read somewhere that I can ask the Marriott Chase Card people to change my statement date so make this a more simple process and so my eqn post on time?
