I am trying to rebuild my credit. I know it’s critical to establish a history of responsible credit usage. I’ve been diligently making small purchases on two of my three major credit cards every month, and then of course paying them off.
I have 3 major CC’s and 3 small store ones. I currently only use my store CC's about once a year to avoid them being closed from non-usage.
Should I actually be making small purchases on ALL of my cards? From the perspective of “ideal” credit behavior, what should I be practicing? If using ALL my cards every month, as opposed to the few I regularly use, will not help to improve my credit, then I obviously want to avoid the inconvenience.
