Sorry to hear it Cheech but 8 cards with balances is a lot in this credit environment. A lot.
Hmmmm. You think so? I am on the horns of a dilemma now. I was about to pay off a card with slightly over 50% utilization. Or, I could pay several down below 50%, but not PIF. Or, I could pay off all the little guys. I know which would increase my FICO more, but I'm not sure if maybe just paying the little guys would "look better," you know?
