Grace period

The grace period is the time during which you are allowed to pay your credit card bill without having to pay interest. The Credit CARD Act of 2009 requires that if issuers have grace periods, they must last at least 21 days. The grace period usually applies only to new purchases. Most credit cards do not give a grace period for cash advances and balance transfers; instead, interest charges start right away.

Minimum payment
The minimum payment is the lowest amount of money that you are required to pay on your credit card statement each month. See your credit card "terms and conditions" document to see how your credit card's minimum payment is calculated. Until 2004, minimum payments were as low as 2 percent, which meant that any large balance could take decades to pay off, if only the minimum payment was made. Under pressure from federal banking regulators, card issuers have in recent years ramped up the required minimum payment.

Cash advance
A cash advance is cash loan from a credit card, using an ATM, a bank withdrawal or "convenience" checks. Credit card cash advances have many disadvantages for consumers. Generally, you cannot take a cash advance for the full amount of your available credit. The interest rate on cash advances is often significantly higher than it is on purchases or balance transfers. If you carry balances with both high-interest cash advances and low-interest purchases on the same card, it is current industry practice to apply payments to the low-rate balance first, increasing total interest rate costs. A transaction fee, which is a percentage of the cash advance, is usually charged. There is typically no grace period for cash advances.
