Not yet Smiley Sad


My AAoA is only 5 months, so I'm going to let it wait another year or so before I cancel it.  By then my cash back should be at the $20 mark (I just have my gym membership going to that card now) so I can redeem that and cancel the card without hurting my AAoA too much

Re: Bye Bye Capital one :)

I would love to, but it really brings up my AAoA since I have had it since 2006. I'm just about to PIF and put it in my sock drawer.
