Your average balances and amount paid is shown in your CR.

While charge cards do not affect utilization, anyone who looks at your CR will be able to tell how much you're using and paying each individual card, including your charge cards, each month.

 

There's no need to go out of your way and rack up a high balance. Having a constant "not-as-high" balance is good enough as well.

 


Where is this info in the CR?  Pulling my EQ from here and my three-agency from Amex, I don't see that.


Pull them from the bureaus themselves. CreditSecure is pretty barebones. Can't comment on the one here.


Other than FAKO scores CreditSecure is everything you need. Unlimited 3 bureau reports daily.

@LS

is CreditSecure still unlimited daily pulls?

Yes, it is, for ~ $24.95 a month.

 

But b_seeker and enharu are right about the extra detail.  I just pulled EQ from EQ, and it does give the amount of the payment.   Not necessarily needed for all purposes, but it is good to see what a lender sees, and Creditsecure certainly doesn't give that.

 

Edit: Assuming of course that that info IS available to the lender..

Yeah, I didn't mean to imply CreditSecure is bad. It's great for its purpose. Just if you were looking for more detail, it's not a good choice.

This is what I meant as well.

 

These data are readily available whenever a full credit report is purchased, regardless of whether it's from Creditsesame, Experian or some company. 

It's just that some companies chose not to include it in their report / interface. Maybe because they think it's not important because the user pretty much should already know how much he/she pays each month. The extra detail is nice, but you're not missing out either if it isnt there.

 

Chase, Barclays and American Express are able to see this info from my own experiences while talking to recon. You have to "guide" the analyst to look at this data though because they usually ignore this anyhow given the number of data they have to churn through. They were asking me about why my balances were so high, and I pretty much explained that I'm just paying in full and reusing the card for new charges, which they can see in my payments history.
