Target Red Card?

[ Edited ]

I have a Target card with a current balance of $51.00 that is due on Dec. 1st.  My previous statement balance was 0 because I always pay in full every month and never carry a balance.


Can someone tell me if Target will report the $51 balance on the card on Dec. 5th when my statement cuts or will they report the existing 0 balance to the CRAs?
