Re: Confession time. What is your Holiday Utilization?

[ Edited ]

Total utilization: 36%. Payoff: June/July/August 2014. Somewhere around there. I'm in no rush since most of the cards are in a 0% APR phase. Plus, I (or my AU) will still be using the cards so that percentage will rise & fall before it is all PIF in 2014. It's called revolving credit for a reason!

I'm at 26%. Down to under 10% end of Jan. I haven't seen a tax refund in years. The IRS keeps mine, and that plus $50/mo., I don't expect to see a tax refund for another 5 years maybe.

Re: Confession time. What is your Holiday Utilization?

Around 21% will pay half in the first half of Jan. 

 

Then break up the remainder between Feb and March.  Will have it off the books by March 10th.  It wasn't all holiday spending, there were some medical, legal and a professional development workshop in there.

I know... I keep telling myself that it's okay because I have no apps planned, but there's a little voice screaming "Three to nine percent!"

Re: Confession time. What is your Holiday Utilization?

Funny i just did the math this mornng to include pending transactions....was 8%  before Thanksgiving....

As of today, 48% thanks to Christmas and appliance purchases for kitchen.  Gift purchases will be paid off by Feb.  Appliances will be paid by August or when our house sells...whichever is sooner.   Enjoying the 0% for a few months either way.
