What time of day does Auto Recharge happen?

Hello all.


I would like to set up Auto Recharge but confused on what time of the day it charges to my card.  For example, I get paid Tuesday every fortnight between 8am to 12pm. I will like to Auto Recharge at around 12 pm or later.


How do I know what time it Auto Recharges? Is it around 11:59pm on Tuesday before my credit expires? As I don't want to lose my banked data and credit before Auto Recharge happens and I don't want to be charged before I get paid which is before 12pm on Tuesday. Any help will be appreciated.

There isn't a set time for the recharges, they will happen at some point during your auto recharge day.

It's also a set day of the month (eg the 25th), not a set day of the week (Mon-Sun) (all months would need to be 28 days for that to work).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it
