Re: Miscalculated Interest (APR) on Credit Card

Hi, I just added it all up from the statements (manually) and did the calculations from the results.
Tomorrow I will use that very good spreadsheet (CISheet v101.xls)
I posted this thread with regards to the interest they charged me on my purchases, as according to my calculations sometimes I nail the fiquire bang on but other calculations are coming up short... I estimate that they have over-calculated the interest by roughly £80, but I've not seen anyone bring this up on CAG.
I've not seen a claim against mis-calculation of interest, though I did read an article earlier where the author estimates billions of £'s have been reaped by the banks via over-calculation of interest.
