Use your BLOC to pay off your card balance:

almost all award cards give you a 25-day grace period. So that is 25 days of FREE money.

When the card balance is due, pay it all off using your bank equity. The balance on your bank equity will decrease as you deposit and hold discretionary income into the bank equity account
