Weekly Payments OK?



I use my Barclays Apple Financiing Visa for everything..they incresed my CL from 1700 to 3500 two days ago.

3500 is not quite high enough


So I charge like 900 at a time wait for that to post then pay it off

I usually do this once a week 3600 in a month


This is ok and looks good right?

You can make as many payments as you like, any creditor likes seeing you can pay back your debts easily.

They just want to get paid! Your weekly payments may end up being a good argument for a CLI.

I do not think it matters. I know some have said that some creditors might think you have budgeting problems but I am not sure I agree. I pay my credit cards 2-4 times a month and I don't think it has made me look bad.

Not a problem at all.  In fact I highly recommend it to keep you utilization lower on your statement date.  If you only paid once a month and you added 3400 of your 3500 CL you are going to look like you have a high utilization and this would lower your FICO score
