    So looking at their BA Credit Card it is different from their ChargeCard as it states that refunds and payments by them won't count towards minimum payment etc unless it reduces the overall balance to below the statement balance/minimum balance. 

    So if you've spent more than the refund since the statement then the full statement would be payable.

    No I haven’t spent more than the refund. If I pay the statement I’ll be in credit. But I know they’ll send it back. Last time I had to email them a statement of my bank account so they could verify it, but I don’t mind that much.

    its a credit card - used to be platinum everyday (no fee).

    Well (for example) if you have a balance of £1000 and you are getting a refund of £700, just pay £300. Seems pointless paying them a grand just to claim £700 back from Amex further down the line.
    . This all assumes they refund you before the due date.

    I have confirmed with Amex that assuming the refund hits before the due date I can reduce my payment and no interest will be charged. I have that in chat but as a precaution I took a screenshot as I always do for information I rely on that has a financial consequence.

    thanks all
