Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

Congrats!  For best results please have 1 account report a balance of 1-9% and not all accounts with 0 balance. Fico does not like that..Smiley Happy

Move the mouse over the cards for detailed view!

Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

One more question I have a total of 4 credit cards now.. Wells Fargo (secured) , first progress(secured), open sky(secured) and credit one bank(unsecured)
I personally like Wells Fargo and firstprogress because of the grace time..
Can I leave 3 of them without use and only use Wells Fargo or firstprogress charge it 20$ or I have to use the other cards as well? Because I can put them in the closet lol please explain thanks Smiley Wink

Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

It doesn't matter which one you actually use as long as all but one report 0 balances.  You can use all of them but pay them off before they report.

 

If you aren't going to use all of them regularly you may want to change up which one you use so the CCC will see activity on the card and not close it.

Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

Thanks Guinness ! May I ask another question.
Is there a limit on the minimum usage?
Can I use them once a month?
Example I can pay my electricity with one, groceries with the other etc etc.. But is there a minimum usage? I'm saying this because all those things I pay them with my debit card anyways, but I don't want to charge more than $100 on the cards,..
Hope I'm not confusing Smiley Wink

Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

I guess I don't understand what you mean by minimum usage.

 

You can use how much on any of the cards you want during the month as long as they are paid to 0 before the reporting date.  All except the one that will be 9% or below.

Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

Ok i got that part. What I meant was let's say my Wells Fargo credit card is $1,000 CL, will they close my credit card if I only use $50 in the whole month and pay it in full before they report?
Same goes for my other cards, will the creditor close them if I only charge like $30- $50 a month and pay them in full?
Hope I'd explained my self good this time

Re: 75% utilization paid off!!!

I understand now.

 

I don't think there is a minimum.  I have seen where the more you use a card, the more likelyhood to get CLI. 

 

As long as you are using it should be what counts.
