Is it better to pay the minimum payment due or to pay my bill in full?
I have been paying my bill in full every billing cycle thinking it would help my score and help my chance to get a credit line increase. But I got denied and my score seems to have stayed the same. So does it reflect badly to pay it off in full all at once? Is it better to pay the minimum due? I would like to apply for another card, but with a score of 673 what are my best options?
