Is it bad to pay your bill in full each month?

You don’t have to carry a balance to have good credit scores. Paying your credit card in full each month is the ideal scenario because it is going to keep your utilization rate, or balance-to-limit ratio, low.

Keeping balances low and making your payments on-time each month will help you build a positive credit history.
