You should always keep your credit card receipts to compare them with your monthly statements.
Be sure to check your monthly statement for mistakes. If you find a mistake, contact the credit card company right away. To be fully protected, you must report a mistake to your credit card company in writing within 60 days from the day the bill was sent to you.
Finally, your institution might invite you to opt-out of receiving paper statements and instead receive them electronically. Before choosing this option, you should be sure that you will have ongoing Internet access in future months to receive the statements.
