Credit Card Utilization %

Mine is really high because I have a BOA Visa Signature card which has no credit limit.  They report n/a under credit limit on my credit report.  So, my total available credit limit is only a sum of my other two cards.  I've contacted BOA and they say that is their standard reporting information similar to a generic AMEX card.  How do you guys handle this? My utilization seems high when in reality it isn't.  Thanks.

Re: Credit Card Utilization %

Keep asking, all cards have a limit.  otherwise I assume either the standard $500-1000 is your credit limit.  They say don't utilize more than 9%.

Re: Credit Card Utilization %

Cards without hard limits are generally categorized into another category.  Where are you getting your scores?  FAKOs don't factor the same as FICO.

Re: Credit Card Utilization %

You're right BOA said it was 5k but very loose. I can go way over w/o an issue.  And I'm very embarrased to say I got my credit Utilization score from Credit Karma.  Yes, I'm now a cheapskate. :smileyhappy:
