Re: Closed CareCredit!

You will get the best scores from individiual accounts that you let stay open for a minimum of 2 yrs. Opening and then closing cards in a short period of time is a negative from an underwriters point of view you may do more damage to yourself than you think. Good luck :smileyhappy:

Re: Closed CareCredit!

I'm actually quite happy you have chosen to ditch the AU's. Get one more card (secured) in your name and your golden. If you do end up keeping an AU, make sure its one that's seldom used. Give it 6-8mos and you'll be able to pull an app spree and get the deposit back!

 

There's a credit union or bank that actually provides a secured without a credit pull. Not sure of the name, maybe someone will chime in.
