If you take advantage of any promotional APR Balance Transfer/convenience Check/Cash Advance offers from BBVA Compass, you may lose your grace period on new Purchases. That is because you must pay your entire balance each month, including any balance(s) created by promotional offers, by the payment due date to avoid interest on Purchase transactions.
