Using one credit card for all purchases can be a smart financial strategy

Dear Experian,

I have a rewards card that I use to earn miles. I have developed a habit of using it for every purchase and then paying it off online right away (not even waiting for my billing statement). That way, I’m not stuck with a huge credit card bill each month. Would this practice affect my credit score?
