Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Please do elaborate :)
Only 1 mod is visible (unless things were changed or moved). Somebody messed up a thread of yours ?

My apologies. When you say visible, where would I see that?

when pending charges actually post to a statement, do they carry a date of the actual swipe or merely the date when it posted even if few days after transaction?

I ask bec my Citi statement close date is tomorrow 9/12, and I have $600 in pending charges that must be posted to the current statement and not the one following.

a fellow user mentioned that in his experience, the date used is the swipe date regardless of length of time the charge sits in pending category. would just like to get some DP on this as it's quite important.

meaning that the statement will be using date when it went off the pending list and NOT when it was actually swiped/charged?

when its due doesn't really concern me. the statement/transaction date is all that matters.

Correct. but it will still post with the 'transaction' date, even if it will be due on the next statement. 
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

For the first 3 hours there’s an option to “remove” on top of your post, afterwards PM a mod.

@nirc  On which date it doses it state that it posted?
