You might see max FICO points with regard to revolving util% calculations but it really depends on your scores and which scoring bucket you're in. As for overdraft protection, it's usually reported as a revolving TL so treat it the same way you would with a CC TL and keep util at zero or no higher than 9%.
In relation to Credit cards: Optimal utilization being between 1% and 4%. What If I kept it under 1% and above 0% at all times?Will it hurt?Will it help?Will it make no difference?ALSO:Same question as above in relation to checking account overdraft protection?Will it hurt?Will it help?Will it make no difference?Thank you in advance.

Will lowering my credit limits hurt my score? Thats why I was asking and hoping that optimal utlz. IS BETWEEN .0000001% - 4% and NOT BETWEEN 1% - 4%. Im pretty sure lowering my limits will HURT my score because it will affect my past history high utlz. Right now, My high utlz. history is at 25% ,lowering my limits to reach stated goals will easily bring it over 50% high history utiz. So I might be powerless to do anything about it.
