Good idea about the cocoa, I think I am too loyal at times.
Household Bank, Chase (old WAMU card), and I app'd for a Discover More card 12/31 (to replace CreditOne)
The moniker is a truth about some things, a reminder about others. There is always more knowledge.

I just called to cancel a rebuilder card, one I've had for almost 4 years. The first company to extend me credit after my credit mishap that a great many of us go through in our teenage years. CreditOne Bank: charged me 24.99% interest, $6.95 a month for annual fees, and $7.95 a month to do an ACH transfer. All of which is certainly understandable for a rebuilder CC. What I don't understand is, why I have such mixed feelings about having just called and cancelling the account. On paper I definately made the right choice, but I still feel funny about ditching my oldest open account.

It'll be OK. Really....we're all here to help with your journey...and you should be proud that you have confidence enough in yourself to say bye-bye to your rebuilder card.
Think of it this way...now your credit line will go to someone else who is a few steps behind you on their rebuilding journey.
