Low to no credit card debt giving me a low credit score...
I have a grade of C for my utilization credit score. I use my credit card but I pay it off every month. So I seldom carry a balance or no balance at all from month to month. Do I have to leave some money on the card every month to get a better score here and increase my credit score? I had a short sell almost two years ago and that is the only negative credit reported on my credit score. I want to keep everything else as good as possible. Suggestions?
