Will a balance on my CC, but charged 0% interest for 18 months, negatively affect my score?
I recently opened a guitar center card and got a $2300 credit line. I charged $800 to the card, but will be charged 0% interest for 18 months. If I pay more than the minimum each month, and pay it off before the 18 months, will my credit score be negatively affected since I have a balance on the account? Thanks all!
