How much is your credit card balance?
« on: July 12, 2018, 01:11:51 PM »
Without going into real Credit card debt, which I would imagine most would consider to be private, how much is your current non interest paying credit card balance such as from MS etc? This is meant to mainly include what is to be paid off each month during the grace period even if it is regular spend and not promo zero percent intro rates, but if those are a part of an MS strategy and not what you consider "real debt" you can include that too.
I am right now at around $30k

When you have a card from the 1920s you can screw the $2 trick.

I've always said leave $1 over.
Dont think $2 is anything magical.

The real question is what the daily highs and lows are.
