Generally the key thing is to show usage (Amex is spendcentric) so if paying often allows you to spend more (because of the low CL) keep doing that. Otherwise I don't think frequency of payment before statement cuts matters at all
But I am not Amex's CLI computer. (Well, just a bit)
im about to hit the 1k bonus today and probaly use that credit as an excuse to buy a new driver.
im in the same boat, I got mine like a month ago, $5k cl, I want to go for the 3x61 and what I have been doing is this:
I have charged about $5000 in less then a month but once it got to $1000 I PIF, so that my balance never got over 20% utilization.
now I dont know if there is any difference then if I charged to the max and then just PIF before statement cut but thats the approach im taking, some advice would be nice
