don't go over 20% so keep it at/under $300 per month and unfortunately its hard to pin point when your credit card company will pull the balance they all do it at different times mine does it a week before the billing cycle ends just have to watch your utilization and mark when you X $$$ amount and compare it to what CK says ur utilization then you will know
