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?

Re: Increase Credit Score ???

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.
