I know some of you guys wait until the last moment to schedule your credit card payments. For those of you who do like to procrastinate, don't forget that we have a holiday coming up this Monday, October 13 (Columbus Day). (Thanks to my girl, Centex, for the reminder.)
You'll want to schedule your payments accordingly. If your payment is due on Monday, be sure that your payment is scheduled (and payable) for no later than this Friday. You don't want to give banks any more of your money than absolutely necessary. Therefore, avoid late payments by scheduling your payment on time.
In the meantime, here is a schedule of every banking holiday for the next four years (I'm using the Atlanta Fed's site because it also includes the day of the week): The Federal Reserve Bank Schedule. Bookmark the site so that you don't forget when banking holidays are approaching.
Meanwhile, I will make it a practice to remind my readers of each upcoming holiday (just in case someone forgets).
If you have Monday off (I don't), enjoy a great three-day weekend (Virgil, take a much-deserved rest, pal). For the rest of you, get back to work!!
