I will be traveling this week. Going to Memphis to visit daughter and watch a little golf. Yay me!
In preparation I am paying this week's bills and Paypal Credit is due 27th. I may be over thinking this, as I have no plans to app for anything in the next few months. Still, I am a bit concerned about this account reporting roughly 35% utilization. Actually, my previously budgeted payment will get it down to 35%. I have one other account, US Bank, that reports high utilization (78%) on a 0% BT offer.
I haven't paid any interest this year and would like to keep that streak intact. I have been trying to have only 4 report balances, 3 under 8.9% and the big one. Would I be better off allowing a few more to report under 10% and get PP Credit below 30%? Assuming it is going to report.
FWIW, all of my SP denials have stated some version of credit seeking, new accounts, recent inquiries, etc... I have May 2013 Medical baddie ($1200) across all three, and 2 additional small ones ($48 & $79) on Equifax.
Again, not really concerned about apping for remainder of year, just concerned about any possible AA due to new (3/26/19) PP Credit showing up.
All input appreciated.
Yeah, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. I usually let my cards report with less than 5%, but I had to let one report over 50%. It actually didn’t bring my score down nearly as much as I expected. Plus, like others said, utilization-related scoring is extremely elastic.
Have a good time in TN!
Individual utilization is nowhere near as impactful as aggregate utilization. I wouldn't worry about one account with higher utilization as long as your aggregate is still low.
