Creditcards/How to figure out minimum paymt?

  1. Say you have a balance on a CC of about $1000-1200 :nuts: How do the CC companies figure out your monthly paymt off that? Is it a certain percentage? There is no interest as it's free for the first 6 mos. Just trying to figure out if I can afford the monthly paymt if I go this route.

    Thanks!
     
  2. I believe it's a certain percentage, but different cc companies use different percentages. If you already know which card you'd use for your purcase, I would call them and ask (or check the materials they sent you w/the card. Yeah -- like I keep those handy!). If you're shopping around to decide which cc to go apply for, it should be in the small print of their advertising materials.
     
  3. I think it's also tied into your interest rate.
     
  4. I don't know, it's so weird b/c one time I had a balance of over 1000 and my min payment was $30 something and the next month I had paid it all off and only had a balance of like $60 something, and the min payment was $50-something ???
