Old collection Vs credit card utilization
Receiving a 2500 bonus shortly and I would like to apply it to my debts the best way possible. Right now I have a 5 year old collection out for 1000$ and I also have a CC balance of 4500/5000. The collection company has agreed to delete the account once paid in full.

How should I apply my bonus?
