Credit Card Payment Amount Too High

My AMEX currently has a zero balance. When entering my grocery transaction of $86.21 for the week I noticed it shows a payment amount of $75 (at top of AMEX budget page in green meaning money is available) - this is in addition to my current grocery shop of $86.21 - totaling 161.21. How do I get rid of the overage of $75? - this is incorrect. Thank you in advance for any advice.

  • Go to the budget page and move money from the credit card payment category.

    Of course, ensure that there are no pending transactions that would be happy of the $75 (and manually input them).  Check other cards that may have had refunds - there's a known bug where spending in the same category on multiple cards can cross wires.  If that's the case, move it to the right card.

    Also, consider paying your credit card on the statement due date - why send them money before they ask for it? This process also has benefits in YNAB because you have less babysitting to do on the CC payment category.
