Does it make a deference on your credit if every month, on every card, you spend $1 and pay it?

PAID what off ? in general your CR only contains statement balances not the date or amount you paid off unless your making a late payment,
a ratio of 5%-10% of your credit used is considered to be the best for your credit

if you dont have anything to pay off thats a 0 balance which is the same as 1$ balance,
but again having a 5-10% ratio 'might' be better

Having $1 on your statement not only prevents being shutdown for "inactivity" but according to reports, people with 1% util % have, on average, scores that are 60+ points higher than those with 0%.

-100

+1
on FACO [especially when you look at it through credit carma] they're might be a difference, and even there only when the ratio is from 5%to10% then your score will be higher vs 0% your score will be lower,
HOWEVER on FICO, your wrong, from experience: my wife had 0% ratio for ages on two cards, her FICO [via myfico.com] was 806, lately she started spending on her cards for a couple of months, still her score is 806

Then I'm not sure what your point is.  I can make my own FAKO scoring system now and give 999 points for picking your nose, but no credit card is going to use my FAKO.

Point is simple, you picking my nose aside:

1) Having $1 on your statement prevents being shutdown for "inactivity", and
2) having a 1% util % shows an active credit profile with positive payment history. Lenders (no matter who they are) like to see that you can use a credit card and pay it off on time whether or not they use FICO/FAKO/proprietary.

HOWEVER on FICO, your wrong, from experience: my wife had 0% ratio for ages on two cards, her FICO [via myfico.com] was 806, lately she started spending on her cards for a couple of months, still her score is 806

You realize that proves nothing, right?

Hmm... how do I explain this...

If 10 factors influence a score and you manipulate one, it is illogical to then start yelling how you've found conclusive proof that your factor (in this case util %) was the factor that compelled the movement (or lack thereof).

1st of all the CBs doesn't always track by the statement balance date, it can also be a random date.
2nd of all as far as activity goes, just spending a $1 and paying it off will keep the card active.  There's no need to wait for the statement to pay the $1 nor any guarantee that if its on the statement will that be the day balances are reported.

1) you said its a difference of 60! points,
2) credit util affects 35% of the score, so its not just 1 factor out of 10
3) I have heard it from other people as well [you can try to check it yourself]
3) I wasn't yelling

on some reports that i have seen it reports evan $1and says 'paid as agreed'
Does it make a deference on your credit if every month, on every card, you spend $1 and pay it? 
using your card and paying it def makes a dif for getting approved for a cc app. even if it doesnt make your score go up, the bank like to see constant use and payments

3) I have heard it from other people as well [you can try to check it yourself]
3) I wasn't yelling

1) No, reports have said 60 points, and I stated that to begin with. I don't work for FICO and neither do you.
2) "If" started a hypothetical. I could have said 1 out of 3 or 1 out of 100. My hypothetical, my language. In any case, 35% isn't significant enough to be conclusive when the remaining factors account for 65%. In fact, even if those values were transposed, it still wouldn't be conclusive.
3) Even if what you're saying is true and you've polled your acquaintances to determine this precise scenario, it's still just anecdotal evidence.
4) Then I must have misunderstood what "!" means. Either way, chillax.

1) I doubt it you saw any report stating that
2)the remaining factors in my case didn't have any bad affect on her CR [no late payments,no collections,no change in credit age etc.]
3)isn't caps lock what you call screaming? but I guess when some1 disagrees with you, you can tell him whatever you have handy
4) you may possess very good argumenting skills, but you also cant admit on mistakes,so its a waist of time arguing with someone who might have agreed with you already but wouldn't admit it,
5)feel free to pm me that you agreed
