Without speaking to other unknowns of your credit profile (Credit Mix, UTIL, open accounts, etc) I can tell you closing that card won't affect your AAoA for 10 years, when it drops off.

Try asking for them to waive your AF because you're considering closing it before it hits.  BOA doesn't love waiving fees, but it's worth a shot.  It's probably best to have 3+ cards open though, at least according to most.  YMMV

This.

 

Also, instead of calling and saying " I want to PC to X card", try asking "Are there any cards I can PC to that don't have an annual fee?"  When I PCed my Platinum Plus to Cash Rewards they gave me an instant decision on the phone.  All I did is ask "What cards can I convert this card to?" and they gave me 2 options.  That was from calling the backdoor number, not the regular CS number.

Holy crap, you're telling me there may be some chance I don't have my Platinum Plus forever?
