Credit Card Utilization not showing up
I have been paying my credit card off every month the day after I actually use the card, which is prior to the billing cycle in order to avoid payment of any interest. However after reading my grade for Credit Card Utilization, (C), and the graph that is provided, I have decided to keep a 1-10% balance for a couple of weeks to see the effect on my credit grade for Card Utilization. Thus far the connected update does not even show my balance as anything other than 0. Is there a time period I have to keep the balance running? Do I need to run through a billing cycle and actually pay some interest? The reporting is declaring my credit card account as updated 2 minutes ago. (for example)
