I had a question about using credit cards. If I have a balance of $1000, would it be ok to use up more than half the available every month if I pay it down to less than 20% before the statement is available. I get paid every 2 weeks, I like to charge on the card because it gives me points, I just wonder if they will report how much the highest balance during the month was on the card or do they only say how much it was when the statement generates.

The card says I have till Aug at 0% apr...woohooo...yes, I plan on paying down to 10% because I heard that you should carry a low balance to raise the score...is that correct as well?
