GEMB Reporting.. Wow!

They don't mess around.  Once you make a charge it almost gets instanstly reported.  Once you make a payment it's up to 60 days before the reported balance gets reduced.

 

Just thought I'd throw that out there...

That sounds very likely. Typical GEMB behavior.

 

That is one thing I do not like about Macys - instant reporting of increased balances. At least they promptly report again at the end of the cycle.

Happens to me all the time.  I put a $38 charge on my Sams card and it shows up the next day and I'm still waiting for it to show 0 balance after paying it on July 7th.  I want no revolving debt to report to see what happens with my TU score since I got my mortage refi and made 1 payment on it.

 

This gives my an idea for a General Question thread.
