So I helped my mom apply for the green card, then the costco trueearnings card. She ended up getting approved for both, but now that she has both she regrets applying for the charge card (she doesnt want too much credit responsibility atm). Is there anyway to cancel the green card app?

even if i close it as soon as i receive it, it will still report?

Yes it will still report.....if she does not want to manage the credit then have her just put it away and forget about it until next year when the AF come due and close it.

what will happen if she just doesnt activate the card when it arrives?

The ONLY thing that activating the card does is make it active for use. It has no bearing on the reporting. The inquiry has been made and will post, the card was approved and will post.
