Cap1 CC payment on Sat+1 question

[ Edited ]

If I make a payment online before noon on Saturday morning with Cap 1 will it be credited that day or will it be credited on Monday? My statement cut date is Monday and want to lower UTIL on it. The problem is that I have just paid medical bill for mother ($3,000) and my additional funds are not available until late Friday.

 

On a related note, if my UTIL on all cards is below 20% but say 60% on one card then how bad of a score hit will I take? Im trying to move some funds around from another account to avoid this problem but wanted to get an idea what kind of impact this would have (especially since I have new accounts about to start reporting and dont want to take too bad of hit when these lenders start softing me).

 

Thanks,

 

 

Duncan

Re: Cap1 CC payment on Sat+1 question

Thanks for reply but not asking about availablity, I'm asking about reported balance.  I want to keep Utilization down.  So the question is would a payment early Saturday be credited to my reported balance that day or would it be credited on Monday (when my statement generates).

Re: Cap1 CC payment on Sat+1 question

Unless you are applying for something in the next month I wouldn't worry about it. This is what credit cards were designed for anyway, shirt term float.

For reference though you have a longer established history than mine: I dropped from 646 to 636 last month when I had 4k report unexpectedly on 7400 aggregate limit and over 60% on one card. No biggie as FICO has no memory of revolving utilization.

Re: Cap1 CC payment on Sat+1 question

To your other question, think that depends on lender on when they credit the payment against your balance. I don't know C1 policies specifically.

Re: Cap1 CC payment on Sat+1 question

Thanks.  Ive already made 2 payments to Cap1 this month but Ive been stead fast in only letting one card report a balance and keeping that to below 3%.  I hate breaking that habit but Hurricane Isaac, mother's deteriating health and some unexpected bills (had a parking ticket from 3 years ago go to collection agency so I paid that immediately to avoid any reporting to CRA) has placed me in a cash flow problem for two weeks.

 

Just trying to avoid past mistakes.
