I got burned by this too. Didn't even realize it until an eligible Februrary charge didn't get credited and I realized it had gone to the old charge. Another reason why this card is just too much hassle.
Looks like Grubhub charge will post with tomorrow's date if you order late evening so you just need to be careful on last day of the month -- for me it seems like 559pm central is the cut off time for using today's date

His 25th purchase should be fine -- should post with 25th or 26th transaction date which is still in Feb

Haven't made a late last day transaction luckily so I've gotten my credits correctly
