This Is A Complicated Question As I Read It. It Would Seem You Have A Gotten Cash On The Card Then You Have Charged Items. They Will Make You Pay For The Cash First Because It Is Getting Them More Interest, When It Is Paid, You Then Will Pay On Items Charged On The Card. Of Course You Will Recieve Checks In The Mail, Phone Calls, Ect. To Keep You Getting Cash So You Never Pay On The Charged Items. So They Can Make More Money. I Hope This Helps
