Is it better to pay off your credit card or keep a balance

Answered By: Francis King Date: created: Feb 20 2021

It’s better to pay off your credit card than to keep a balance. That’s because credit card companies charge interest when you don’t pay your bill in full every month. Depending on your credit score, which dictates your credit card options, you can expect to pay an extra 9% to 25%+ on a balance that you keep for a year.

Should you pay off your credit card every month

Answered By: Fred Simmons Date: created: Jul 18 2021

In general, we recommend paying your credit card balance in full every month. When you pay off your card completely with each billing cycle, you never get charged interest. That said, it you do have to carry a balance from month to month, paying early can reduce your interest cost.

Why did my credit score go down when I paid off my credit card

Answered By: Charles Wright Date: created: Jul 19 2021

That scoring factor is one reason your credit score could drop a little after you pay off debt. Having low credit utilization (30% or less and the lower the better) is good; having no credit utilization may be harmful to your score. Some of the other factors that affect your credit score also could come into play.
