How is my interest calculated?

Finance charges narrated on your credit card statement is an accumulation of interest which has accrued on both your ATM withdrawals and POS or online purchases within the monthly cycle. You can get up to 45 interest-free days on purchases and internet transactions, as long as you pay your card statement in full.

Please note that this only applies to purchases made on your card at a merchant or online. You will get charged interest on all cash transactions from the day you do the withdrawal. Interest is calculated based on the numbers of days cash was withdrawn.

  1. At Diamond Bank, we take all your transactions from the 16th of one month (January for example) to the 15th of the following month (February), and we group them all together on your statement and send this to you on the 18th of the month. In this example, this statement is due for payment on the 29th of February.
  2. If you make a purchase on 16th January and you repay 100% of your outstanding balance on 29th February, interest will not be charged on the purchase, allowing you 45 days interest-free credit.
  3. The repayment date is the 29th of each month. However, the closer you get to this date, the less interest-free days you can enjoy. If you make a purchase on the 12th of the next month and you repay 100% of your outstanding balance, you can enjoy 17 days interest-free credit.
  4. What happens when you don't pay in full? Interest accumulated by those transactions, will be loaded onto your credit card statement for repayment the following month.
  5. However, remember that interest will start calculating on all cash transaction from the withdrawal date.
  6. What happens on the 16th February? We start a new statement cycle, with all transactions made between 16th February and 15th March payable on the 29th of March. This cycle continues until your card account is closed.
