@Cynthia – when does your billing cycle close? That’s often before the “payment due by” date. If your billing cycle closes before 4/30, you could post your payment the next day. The “pay by” date is only a deadline to avoid interest. There is nothing that prohibits you from paying before then. What you want to avoid is making a payment on the card BEFORE the billing cycle closing date, as that will simply be posted as a credit reducing the amount of the spending still open for the cycle. What you also want to investigate is just how quickly the 50K sign-up bonus will post your BA account. This whole discussion may be moot if the 50K won’t post until after 4/30.
