Will spending often (about 400 a week, Less than 20% Utilization) hurt my credit score?
Okay, so I am going on a trip sometime next fall and I am paying my hotels, airfare, etc. My max credit across both my cards is about 13,000 and I have so far spent 1500, split between a local bank's card and Cap1 card. I am not concerned about credit utilization as much as I am how many times I swipe (or in this case, pay online). Will multiple purchases, say around 400 a week, hurt my credit score?
