I just got my first credit card ever to begin building a credit. I got the chase credit card called Freedom. I have heard so many stories of credit cards that I got a little scared and that is why after living 4 years in the USA I finally decided to get one. My question is, someone told me my closing date is different then my due date, but I don't know when my closing date is. I haven't got my first bill yet since I just activated it this week. Here is how it is.
My due date is the 23 of each month and yesterday the 14th I had to buy an outfit for an event and used my credit card for the first time. In this case, will this count for this month still or will it only show on my next statement? Since people told me that even though my due date is the 23 my statement probably closes on the 15th. I am so confused, and really don't want to mess up.
