Re: 5 Credit Cards Closed!

Agreed. Nothing lost by closing those cards. Concentrate on the ones you still have, you will be fine.

Not really. You seem to have way better cards in your sig anyway. I don't believe in having that many store cards and have only kept the ones that I actually have use for or have grown with me as my profile has improved. They're just utilization cushions this point to help keep me under 10% each month.

Total CL: Around $168,750 not counting hidden TLs. FICOs in the 700-730 range.

Main cards: Macy's Amex: $24k, Lowe's, $17k, Chase Sapphire Preferred: $7k, Chase AARP: $5.2k, Chase Freedom: $5k, Chase British Airways: $5k, Discover It: $1.5k, Barclays Arrival: $2.5k, Sam's Club MC: $8.5k, Stash: $8k, Sam's Club: $10k, Wells Fargo Propel: $8k, Paypal Smart Connect: $4.9k, Amazon Store Card: $6k, Cabelas Club Visa: $5k, Nordstrom: $5k, CapOne Quicksilver: $2k

Re: 5 Credit Cards Closed!

Depends on the limits of those cards and those you've kept open, which is entirely unclear.  Your utilization may take quite a hit, depending.

Starting (July 2013): 557 EQ - 586 TU - 591 EX ** Current: (Jan 2017): 715 EQ - 750 TU - 730 EX ** Goal: 750+ on all

Re: 5 Credit Cards Closed!

If your utilization did not take a significant hit it doesn't matter.

 

Also, if you don't plan on buying anything utilizing credit for a while it doesn't matter

Re: 5 Credit Cards Closed!

If the cards have tons of age on them and were your oldest cards, you could have spread it out but what's done is done.  No real impact in the short term.

I'm sure he meant stay on your report for 10 years. But they will not report once closed. Will help AAOf A in time. But not util. It's outboard if you don't need them rouse them. I'm surprised you axed macys. As it grows fast.
