Perhaps for someone who's just starting out.

Putting a small amount on one card for someone with just one card usually means (if he's using his card regularly) that they need to pay up almost everything before they're statement closes. If they're CL is $1000 and they spent $500 that month, then not paying up early means they are using 50% of their CL which is bad for one's CS
We are talking about the $2 trick. Check out CB and it is all explained in detail. It has also been tested extensively by the legend BW.

Link?

The $2 trick is directly connected with credit utilization percentage.

(Someone with a lower CL the trick will have greater benefits)

Is it $1 or $2? ;D
Once upon a time banks would forgive statements of $1 or less, so that was a reason to spend $2.
I don't think any banks still do that.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Source?
Check out many of the FICO reason codes https://www.fico.com/en/latest-thinking/product-sheet/us-fico-score-reason-codes

No recent revolving balances

Number of active bank/national revolving accounts

Too few accounts with recent payment information

Too few active accounts

and many more.

The six month time period is based on my own experience (fico does not disclose their exact algorithm)

I keep seeing DP's of people getting a 60k AMEX Green offer but I'm only seeing 50k through a referral. Any tips?
