Re: Barclay CC Questions

You don't need to worry about going over 50% throughout the month. In fact if you are always charging up to your limit and making a payment, that can tell them you do need an increase.  Some creditors do look negatively at multiple payments, as they view it as you can't handle your finances so pay right away.  You should set up autopay of at least the minimum, just in case, and pay the balance before the statement date. You can set up an alert when you are within a specific dollar amount of your limit, and then schedule extra payments as needed.

Do you know that out of experience or did you read it somewhere? Also, do you know which banks does not like multiple payments per month? Thanks in advance for the help.
