i could be wrong but i dont believe you need to run a balance, you just need to pay the bill AFTER the report date so your balance gets reported......so pay it online like the last day you can, and it SHOULD have the same affect...
from what i understand.....and i guess it could depend on the card....
as long as the debt is reported you should not need to keep the balance.....thats the idea anyway...(if you charge something, and pay it off before it is reported to the big 3, they may never know you HAD the debt...)
