That's the thing. How could it be a problem if I keep zero balances. Right? I mean wouldn't that show that I am responsible?


No, it would not.

 

Being responsible means paying the nut on each card on time, every time.

 

Owing nothing means nothing in credit card world.  But if you're actually using those cards, and not just for a stick of gum every so often, and you're paying them off in full each and every month for a while,...then, that's something.

Also, they LOVE interest.  Throwing them a bone every now and then(not paying them off completely every time, But alaways on time!), goes a long way in getting trust with your cards....:smileywink:

Re: Concerned about new accounts

I opened 6 new accounts in a 60 day period. I wouldn't worry now that you have them. It will affect your credit score now but after a few months to one year...the effects will have worn off.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 758 (EQ) 741 (EX) 768 (TU) 8/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Mastercard (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)

Are you really encouraging someone to pay interest on a credit card?  :smileymad:

 

Please don't do that.  It's just...wrong.  The CC companies make money from the merchants every time you use their card.  They don't need to dig into your pockets for more.
