I have over paid my credit card and now have a credit on next statement how do I enter it on the reconcile balance for the next month? Do I enter as -1.50? and when I do it does not balance out.
Yes, enter the statement balance, whatever it is, when reconciling.
If the reconcile doesn't balance then the activity doesn't yet agree with what is on the statement; that the ending balance is negative should not matter.
Discrepancies like this can be caused by some reconciliation adjustments or modifications from previously reconciled transactions. The following are the reports you can pull up to identify the discrepancy.

RE: It does not zero out then what?
Then either the opening balance, or the cleared debit or the cleared credits don't add up to the bank statement amounts - just like any other reconcile.
