First credit card, what next?
I just got my first credit card! yaya! Now I have been advices by several people as to how to increase the score.
My card has a 1000 dollar limit.
1) Dont use the credit card for more than 50 dollars, it shows that you are credit worthy cause inspite of having a 1000 dollar limit, u are not spending a lot.
2) Use the credit card for every thing! Stay within 900 dollars and pay on time.

Which one of these will help more?
