she pays in increments so it slowly increases her credit rating

Depends. You should wait until you actually receive a statement to pay off your bill (I didnt realize and just kept getting $0 statements) if you want to build credit. But just doing the minimum will fuck you

>Credit goes up more if you pay the minimum rather than just paying the whole bill

>> No.5559350

What do you mean? She's making complete fucking sense.

When you're building credit you want to show that you're capable of borrowing money and making payments on time. So you borrow money on credit and pay off the required payments each month....as opposed to simply paying the whole thing at once and being done with it.

Like when you finance a car. You could pay in cash but the interest rates are so low it makes sense to buy it on lease.

she'd be broke if she paid it, she's a retard trying to rationalize her retarded spending habits. also carrying debt to improve credit rating is a meme.

Are you also a female?

Your credit rate will always be higher if you carry zero balance.

People with high credit scores are the ones that have lots of credit to their name, but do not carry balances.

>> No.5559491

Paying in full is always better for your score. Your credit rating is a ratio between how much credit you have to your name compared to how much you are utilizing at the moment. If your balance is not ZERO your score will be lower.

>> No.5559494

No, it is not financing, she is just carrying a balance on a credit card and the idea that this improves your credit score is retarded due to low credit standards, popularized by the people making money off it and only marginal compared to the length of card ownership.

Credit Usage
When you only make the minimum payment on your credit cards, you’re not doing much to lower your credit card debt. Another major component of your credit score is your credit utilization ratio, which measures how much of your available credit you’re using. Carrying a balance that’s more than 30 percent of your credit limit may harm your score.

For example, if you have a $2000 credit limit, it may be helpful to keep your balance under $600. If you owe more than $600 but only make the minimum payment, chances are there’s not too much left over after interest payments to make a substantial dent in your debt.

>> No.5559636

This is how it actually works. It's an arcane calculation involving your available credit, credit utilization, and payment history. Paying off debt does way more for your score than making minimum payments. Minimum payments just means you're getting fucked on interest. The only time you want to just carry the loan and pay the interest is if you are making more money using that payoff amount somewhere else, like I've been carrying my student loans for years because the rate has been like 3% and I can pull 20-40% in stocks. Otherwise just having a few credit cards that you fully pay off after the statement is enough to establish a payment history so you can get the things you actually need a loan for (car, house).

The only reason you even need to build credit is if you're a kid and they banks have literally no idea what you've ever borrowed and relayed.

>> No.5559651

Look you fucking retards just gaining credit from just credit cards is fucking worthless
when they run your credit for a car loan or whatever the fuck and all they see is credit card payments they are going to give you a shit rate no matter your credit score
now if you have bills and loans all paid on time on your credit report a long with a high credit score, you'll get the best rates.

The whole "use credit to build credit" is a meme. But she isn't even understanding the meme. You myth is that if you use your credit card but pay it off every month, sometimes multiple times a month, to keep your debt utilization low this will build your credit. She isn't even doing that right, just fucking herself over with 20% apr interest.

But the thing is you don't need to "use" credit to build your credit, you need to have some sort of credit obligation, could be a credit card or loan, and actually NOT use it as much as possible, keep the utilization as low as possible and never miss a payment.

I had a 720 credit score before I even got my first credit card from just having some mall store charge card with a $500 limit I never used at all, and paying a small car loan. My first credit card had a $20k limit, I only made ~60k at the time so would never use even 10% of that a month. Now my score is 780 after it dropped when I closed a credit card because I had too many.

That's why credit scores are retarded anyway, as long as you don't habitually miss payments you will have 700+ and interest rates on loans will be based entirely on your income. If you're trying to "build credit" you're spending way to much effort on something that doesn't matter if you make sure you're being financially responsible in general.

You don't automatically get credit for becoming a signer on your parents card. Credit scores are assigned to SS numbers. If the card isn't under your SS number, you don't get credit.

Your school should have some sort of credit card you can sign up for.
If you have zero history, you will probably get rejected from getting any bank credit card.
Get a school one or credit union one then build up your credit then you can apply to get a bank one.
Remember to pay off every month

How do you morons manage to get into crypto when you clearly have no idea how credit cards work? Are mommy and daddy buying for you?

Building credit is so fucking simple, all you need to do is keep the balance on your credit statement low compared to your credit limit, and pay it off every month.

Who do you think usurers want to give more opportunities to make mistakes, some stupid bitch who's already paying the minimum balance with a shitty card, or someone who's so-far been too responsible with their money?

>> No.5561989

>why would they reward you more for paying them back slower?
Because your GOYCO score is based on how much money you make the banks. People who never make the banks any money aren't best goyim, so they don't get the most good goy points.

Being tapped out is stupid, but holding a small balance will build you credit rating faster than always being at 0, because the jew isn't going to make any money off bad goyim that don't pay their interest shekels.
