CCC's don't care (probably don't even notice) if a balance reports. That's strictly a scoring phenomenon.
They might care about whether you carry a balance, and they get some money off of you. My personal feeling is that if they require me to give them interest to make them a good card, they're headed for the shredder. But I realize that it's different when you're starting or restarting.
Any experience out there to say whether carrying a balance on WalMart helps with CLI's?
