Interesting, so at least for you here, 20% utilization is enough to be called out as too high.   Was this just on the Zync, or your overall credit cards?

overall 

pif my zync before the 28th(the time my statement closes) has always reported zero. usually use this card until i hit 490 and pif. sometimes 2 times in one month. when apping though there was a 30 dollar charge already showing for  my xm in my car. 

 

right now i have 5 cards reporting out of 10

4200/21000 according to ck. 

will be cut in half by end of month and back too 2% by end of feb.
