When do credit card companies report?
I'm new to credit cards so I have a few questions. I was able to get a secured credit card with capital one with a credit limit of 200 and my due date was the 27th of December and I paid my balance in full which was 92 dollars on the 27th so on the 29th of December I made a purchase of 11 dollars and didn't know that my monthly statment didn't close until the 2nd of January. Will I owe Interest on the 11 dollars? Also, I just found out you're not supposed to use more than 30% of your available credit and I've been using 50% will that be really bad for my credit score ( which I'm trying to build)?
