    Credit Cards To Improve Rating

    Credit Cards To Improve Rating 8th Mar 18 at 11:26 AM
    Good morning,

    Iím just looking for some reassurance Iím doing the right thing.

    I currently have an improving credit rating (Iím aware the score and rating mean nothing) My Score is poor due to over borrowing a few years ago and having a satisfied ccj on my file. My ccj is due off my record in 2020.

    I currently have a Marbles credit card (£300) I have last week got 2 further credit cards, Barclaycard (£800) and Aqua (£500). I got these as I was advised to.

    My plan is to use a cards for petrol, I plan to put £25 in my car on say my Aqua card and then when it needs petrol again use my Barclaycard for £25. Then come the end of the month pay them off in full.

    I just want to check that a limit of £800 and only spending £25/£50 on it a month would that be seen as a bad thing?
