Considering Closing a CITI Card that Does not Report?

So I have a Citi Dividend card opened back in 2004 that does not report. Has not reported for the last 2 years now... and is my oldest Citi card. Thinking about closing it... thoughts? I have 4 other Citi cards and other "category" cards... just one less card to manage.

FICO: EX: 743 (10/14); TU: 758 (9/14); EQ 721 (9/14)

In My Wallet: Amex X 5 | Barclays X 3 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 3 | Citi X 7 | DCU X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 1 | Macys X 1 | PenFed X 1 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1 = 36 Cards

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!

If it doesn't report, I think that you should send it to MY house.  :smileyhappy:

This may be frowned upon here, but I would love to have a prime card, high limit that does not report.  That would be my main card, while I keep all others at zero.  Heehee.

Fair enough. The problem is that I have quite a few cards that I have to cycle out month to month (to show use) so that they don't stay inactive for too long. The only thing I can't stomach losing is a 15k CL associated with this Dividend card.

J.P. Morgan Select does not report.  I LOVE the hidden trade line.  If I ever have to carry a balance, that's the card I'd use. :smileyhappy:

Why doesn't it report?  I bet they would be able to figure that out real quick if you stopped making payments.
