Re: Closed 3 Store Cards Today

I haven't had a store charge card in over 30 years.  For me, they always seem to be more trouble than they are  worth.  I just use my trusty old debit card when I shop at one of them, which isn't very often.

Re: Closed 3 Store Cards Today

generally not a fan of closing no fee accts, if you app them, they may as well have some utility.

Nice work.  I closed my GEMB JCPenney card when I found it was coded as a consumer finance account.  It was a pretty nice CL for me, but I have never missed it!

mjbfan79,

 

I am in process of doing the same thing, I am especially aiming my sights on all GEMB accounts.  Just yesterday I closed my American Eagle account  (150.00 CL) because I was told at the 4 month mark, I was should be elgible for a CLI, tried at 4 months, no luck, need to see more payment histroy, try again when the account reaches 6 months, tried at 6 months no dice, not enough payment history, call back in 6 moths. So I told them to close my account because they have a "history" of not keeping thier word!  Chevron and Wal-mart are next!  I understand that I do not have a long credit file (oldest tradeline was opened in July of '08), but  I have a perfect payment history and I almost always PIF every month.  It felt so good to say those three little words "close my account"!
Does mjb stand for what I think it stands for?  :smileyhappy:

I do understand what your saying but i have applied for to many cards in the last few years an need to cut some of them loose an i would rather them say closed my consumer then closed by granter. My a take a lil hit with my scores but that all will come back. I have learned a big lesson when it comes to store cards only apply for cards where you shop allot. I don't really have allot of time joggle like 20 CC.

Why are you anticipating a score hit?  If you're carrying balances and it affects your utilization, you may see a hit.  Otherwise, no.

 

I actually got a little bump :smileywink:
