Nothing much happens if you don’t use your credit card for a month. You’ll just need to keep up to date with your monthly payment if you have an existing balance. But your credit card issuer isn’t going to close your account for less than three months of inactivity. And on top of that, you’ll still receive a monthly statement if you don’t make any purchases, but there won’t be anything new to pay off.
Interest will still accrue on any balance you had from past months, and you’ll still need to make a monthly payment on that balance. So don’t forget to send that in, if applicable. But if you always pay in full, you don’t need to do anything.
Here’s why you should use your card frequently
The only other thing to consider is that if your card offers rewards, you’ll miss out on a month’s worth if you don’t use it. You’re going to spend some money on necessities anyway, so it’s probably worth it to put your groceries or gas on your card. And it’s good for your credit score to use your card every month, too.
