How much is the average minimum payment for a credit card?

Usually 10 - 15 % of the balance. If you want to make sure that your credit and credit score continues to increase each month then follow these steps: 1) Stay below 50% of the High Credit Limit on your revolving accounts (credit cards). For example: If you have a Discover card with a high credit limit of $2,000 stay below $1,000 as your balance and make the minimum payment each month. You can also pay this account in full each month if you are using it on a regular basis. 2) It is important that you have active credit. Credit cards that you are using on a monthly basis, and making on time payments on. The activity of these payments, and staying below this limit will increase your score. Remember, never borrrow more than what you can afford! Credit is there to help you not hurt you. Good Luck!
