I have 9 credit cards and I just have all the dates on my iPhone, my phone just reminds me the day a statement is available and I pay it off that day.

I have my cards synced so that several are due on the same date. When the date arrives I go through the cards and pay them.

i manage all of my cards online. I usually sit down once a week, usually sundays, and pay off all of my remaining balances once company at a time. Switching between websites is quick and easy and i can monitor all of my cards outstanding balances so that i keep my utilization low and my rewards high. Good luck.

I set up electronic reminders if possible.

I have all my by cards do at or around the same date. I have some due mid month, and most due at the end of the month. I do my best to align them with pay dates.

I log on to view them once a week or so.

I have mint and love it. I get email reminders of when bills are due.

I'm old school, I have a notebook that I make a sheet with all my credit cards and utilities and stuff, their payments, and due dates. It's not real bad cause everything is due around the same time of the month (+/- 3 days of the 10th), except my Chase Sapphire Preferred which is always on the 24th. I cross off each bill as it gets paid, and log on sometimes to the sites to make sure there aren't any unauthorized charges on anything. It's probably considered an outdated way for the average person my age (late 20s) to do something, but its simple and easy.
