The Credit One Platinum may or may not have a grace period, depending on what the card terms say when an applicant gets pre-qualified. When the Credit One Platinum does have a grace period, it will be at least 24 days, lasting from the end of each billing cycle until the payment due date. This grace period allows eligible cardholders to avoid interest charges, provided they pay their Credit One Platinum balance in full each month.
Keep in mind that you are not required to pay the entire balance by the due date. But if you decide to pay less than the full amount due, you will lose the grace period. The remaining Credit One Platinum balance and any new purchases will then start to accrue interest, which compounds daily. To get a credit card grace period back, you will need to pay the statement balance in full for two consecutive months.
It’s also important to note that grace periods do not apply to cash advances.

Impact of a Credit One Credit Limit Increase on Your Credit Score
