Closed my HSBC discover today...

Because of the $300.00 limit and $59.00, they tried to keep me...lol...tried to tell me they MAY be giving CLI's soon, that I should keep it...but NO way...Not when I was just approved for a Discover More with a REAL limit of $4500.00, I also closed my rebuilder Orchard card...Feels good to finally get a real card...I also was preapproved for the amex zynk on the site and I apped and was approved for that card too...so good riddance to HSBC and their low limit cards...

Re: Closed my HSBC discover today...

I don't blame you with HSBC. 300 CL with a $59 AF is harsh.

Grats on your DISCOVER card! Nice CL too!

I would make sure it's really closed.  I had the same card, same CL with the same AF.  I "closed" it 9/09.  I noticed just today on my Experian report that it's still being reported as open.  :smileymad:

That's not a bad thing at all. As long as it's reporting as open it will continue to help your AAoA. Generally once an account is closed it will report for up to 10 after closing.

 

If it stays this way you are one of the fortunate few.  :smileyhappy:
