I just recently paid off the majority of my credit card debt but I want to make sure I keep using the cards so they can help my credit. If I use one of my cards for gas and then pay it off immediately that day, am I still getting the benefit of using that card or do I need to let the balance register for a couple of days before I pay it off?

As long as the company that owns the card knows you use it, they will be happy
FICO seems to like a balance to be reported on one card, then Piff it so you don't have to pay interest
