This is how credit cards should be used if you're going to use them. I use mine like debit cards that end up paying me $20-30 a month in rewards. You don't need to carry a balance (pay interest) for them to help your credit (though I've read that having a small statement balance is better than having nothing on the statement).

If you don't want to use the snowball method, then what strategy do you use?
