I got a credit card over the summer and I'm hoping to start establishing good credit for the future. At the moment, all I really ever use money on is gas, so that's all I've been using it for, so far. It's enough to create a balance that I can pay off monthly - but does it matter how much I pay off my credit card at a time, as long as I pay off at least the minimum balance? Or, more specifically... Does it make a difference if I pay off the entire balance at one time, as opposed to continue making the minimum monthly payments? Does this make sense at all? I apologize if it doesn't, I'm not exactly used to the lingo quite yet. I just want to know what is the best way (in your opinion) to pay off a credit card bill.
