It’s crucial to stay organized when you’re in the miles & points hobby.  Because if you don’t pay your bills on time and in full every month, any interest you accrue will likely negate any rewards you earn.

And some folks like to time their credit card payment due dates around the same time or at a certain time of month to make them easier to remember and manage.

So I’ve put together a step-by-step guide to show you how to choose your payment due date on Chase cards!

Changing Your Chase Card Bill’s Due Date

One simple way to stay organized in the miles & points hobby is to schedule your cards’ payment due dates in a way that makes managing them easier for you.

For example, most folks get paid on a regular schedule, so you could arrange your payment due dates to coincide with when you’re paid.  Or you could arrange the due dates on all of your accounts to fall around the same time, so they’re easier to remember.

You might even want to pay them towards the middle of the month so that your rent or mortgage isn’t due at the same time!

Million Mile Secrets team member Harlan recently took the time to reschedule his credit cards’ due dates, and said it has been such a relief (and less of a hassle!) to have them due around the same time each month.

There’s also the timing of the Southwest Companion Pass.  Your credit card payment due dates can come into play if you’re earning the pass with the sign-up bonuses from the Chase Southwest cards.  Because you’ll want to make sure the Southwest points you earn post at the beginning of the year, so your pass will be valid for 2 full years!

Here’s a step-by-step guide to how you can schedule the due date on any of your Chase credit cards.

Step 1.   Log-In and Select Your Account

Log-in to your Chase account.  After selecting the account you’d like to manage, you’ll see the account’s current payment due date.

Note:  Depending on the Chase accounts you have (personal, business, checking, savings, etc.) your interface may look slightly different. 

To change your due date, click the “Things You Can Do” dropdown menu.
