should i let a couple balances report? and have more cash in checking? 

move over from savings? 

 

thoughts opinions? 

 

why do i feel bad leaving a balance? lol 

its not like i get charged interest unless i let it report 2 months in a row without pif. 


I let balances report on two of my cards, BoA and SDFCU, which are the cards I use daily.  BoA is on a 0% promotion, so I will let that report and take my time paying it.  SDFCU I usually pay in full, but I don't bother to catch it right before the statement because I use it every day and have been lately putting some large purchases on it.  My scores are barely effected by having these two cards report decent balances ($2500+ sometimes).  My creditors are not complaining.  I don't need any other cards at this point in time.  I would just let the your cards report.  If you see a drop in your score and want to apply for new credit soon, then just pay it off the next month before the statement.
