• No withdrawal will be made if you have a $0 balance on your card when the automatic payment begins processing (usually a day or two before your due date).

• If you’re enrolled in a fixed amount AutoPay option that’s less than your minimum amount due, you’ll need to make an additional payment for the remaining amount due.
