Hi All,I welcome your opinions. I currently have an Orchard Bk CC with a CL of $300 and an AF of $79. I have a Cap One CL$1000 and just got approved for WaMU CL $3000. Can I tell Orchard bank to shove their low limit card with an annual fee? I have a BK in 06 and I don't think I need any more credit.BTW I have a very long credit history so age isn't a factor. All CC received this year.Thanks for your help!
Are you gonna tell em in detail where to put it? j/kOnce I graduated from subprime I did the same with my HHB card. The AF wasn't nearly that high. Neer keep a card with an annual fee unles the perks are out of this world or thats all you can get is my philosophy. The HHB was my oldest card and didn't hurt my score a bit. The limit on that card isnt even enough to effect your utilization much.

Benn there done that!! Hopefully you weren't held hostage for nearly as long as I was. I kept getting preapps but afraid to apply til 6 years post-bk.. Afraid every card issuer would see my BK 'shame'. Finally they forced my hand by ratejaking me for no apparent reason and I almost did tell them...in detail. Actually closed it before I got anything else...lol!!!I guess I owe them a debt of gratitude. Had it not been for that,my scores would still be in the fives and I would still be paying that fee every year. I WORSHIPPED my HHB card, slept with it under my pillow...j/k.. Heck at the time, no one else would even give me the time of day.BTW one of my favorite cards right now is HSBC issued. It just depends on what bait you swallow.
