If the purchase is $2k and I only have $1k+ left in the credit limit, does it make more sense to pay $1k in cash and pay the rest in credit? Or top up the card with $1k cash and pay everything in credit? (Thereby paying more later in the statement). It doesn't make sense haha.
When you top up $1k to your card to increase your credit limit and paying everything in credit, this will not result you in paying more compared to the first method you mentioned (paying $1k in cash and $1k in credit) as you already paid $1k when you did the top up.
By paying the $2k purchase through credit card, you will be entitled to more cashback/rewards (provided there is no cap for cashback/rewards)
