Pay off debts in collections with credit card?
I have about $1100 in collections for medical bills. I currently have a credit card with plenty of credit available to pay off what is in collections. What would help my credit score more, if I arrange something with the collections company or just put in on my credit card and make payments to that monthly?
*For arguments sake, let's say I always make the payments on time either way.
