Need help understanding credit utilization on two credit cards...
I understand from reading here that if you have credit cards you have to use them so they will report to the credit bureaus, but not to exceed 30% of your available credit. Does this mean, if you have two credit cards, you have to use both credit cards every month? Or can you shred one (while keeping it open) and just use the one?
