Fewer cardholders carried balances, while more cardholders paid in full each month in the second quarter of 2014, the American Bankers Association found
“Transactors,” or cardholders who don’t carry a balance, were up 0.6 percent from the first quarter to the second quarter, while “revolvers,” or those who carry balances, were down 1.5 percent, dropping to an all-time low in their share of accounts. Dormant accounts rose, up by 0.8 percent.
