wow I'm glad you came to the boards to ask.... If you have a credit limit of $750 and you spent $750  if you do the minimum payment of $25 your look at $725 balance

 

(if no interest rates are accessed, remember most credit card companies do not charge interest for a grace period Amex gives you 25 days before interest is charged.)

 

So you would only have a balance of $25 usable credit.


Could you imagine the type of trouble people would get into if that were the case??
