He's right. You have to leave a balance every month. I use a credit card to buy gas, generally around $500/month. I pay it all off at the end of the month, minus around $30-40 to leave a balance. If you just pay it off every month it isn't getting reported.

That is what I was told by someone high in the banking industry. I'm sure you'll tell me how they're wrong.

Why would I do that?

I didn't know this.

I can't build credit if I pay it off Every month

I've heard this too and idk if it's true or not. I will tell you this... my wife is a super tightwad... she always pays our card off every month. It hasn't seemed to ever have had an adverse affect on our credit...

Of course, we have a mortgage, car payment(s), power bills, etc. that she's always been religious about... in the 18+ years we've been married she's been late on like two payments for something and one of those was an online error by our bank.

Here's some credit tips...

In general, if you have accounts in your name, and you keep them up to date and don't have late payments, your score will be fine.

Paying off full is a short term boost to the score. The key is on time payments and oldest ACTIVE card.

You can pay off each month and if you stopped using your card for a year it won't dramatically lower your score.

Part of the fico algorithim.

Don't go to tanning beds, use sunscreen, eat healthy and avoid car payments especially large ones. Oh and don't waste your life away on the internet.

Find who you are and be that person. People will always try to influence you and your decisions. Whether it be friends, parents etc. fug them. Say what you want to say. Do the things that you want to do.

Both are right actually...Visa's and Mastercards..leave a balance...Store Cards such as Amazon and Belk..pay that poo off..if you don't ..pay it EARLY..b/c if you're so much as 1 second late they report it as 30 days late PLUS hit you with a $35 late fee...

Don't do drugs

Don't smoke

Take school seriously..whether it's high school or college..way harder to go back in your 30's

don't fug your credit up..when it comes to buying a house and cars....makes it quite difficult (trust me, i've been there and gone though it..I'm 35 and I finally have really good credit)

Don't be an asshole..treat others how you'd like to be treated

Stay in shape..really hard to get back there when you're a fatty

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
