Increase Credit Score ???

[ Edited ]
I am in the process of repairing my credit. I have several $300-$1000 limit credit cards that are 1-2 years old. I pay all balances in full every month. Is it better to pay in full or carry a balance of 1-9% on my cards?

What you want is for each CC to report payments. If you use each card every few months & pay bal. off before int.hits. I believe thats all you can do.
Thats my guess.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
