Closing Cards Monday

Open Skyy wants me to pay a $74 annual fee in January.  I said "no thank you, I'll close the card." They came back with an offer of $29.  I'll leave it open until December.

 

I actually did close my Capital One MC as they made no attempt to keep me.  Now that I'm in Prime land I don't need them anymore anyway (not to say that they didn't help me get here!) 

 

Not worried about AAOC for a few reasons... First because I have everything that I need in terms of credit and property.  Second because the lovely people at Amex treated me so well and backdated my cards to my original date that I opened my first green back in 1994.  Life is good!

 

I don't like having many cards open... Trying to enjoy the simple life!

 

Happy Monday!

Since you're in the "prime land" I think you made a good decision by closing those cards cuz you basically don't need them anymore... Good for you!!!! Happy monday for you too :smileywink:

You are a role model for us :smileyhappy:

 

Jk. Good job getting to where you don't need other cards to rely on. I am hoping one day I can hit the 800 club and get to where i don't have to worry about another 28% car loan like the one I am in. Bad credit will do that to you.

Tell me about it!  Before I refied my car last month I was at 12%.  I was able to get it down to 1.99% with my credit union!  I am a happy camper!
