IS it better to pay off full smaller accounts or make a bigger payment towards a larger account
So I'm working towards improving my credit score I always want to keep it as high as possible but things happen sometimes that need to be fixed. I have no late payments or really any negative things on my report just high balances on my accounts. So my question is whether or not it is better to make a huge payment towards my credit card with the highest rates or to pay off in full some of the smaller accounts? Which would help my credit the most?
