Will my score take a hit if I close the CreditOne card? With a FICO score of 641, are store cards an option for me?


You might want to read the "Closing Cards" sticky thread.   It would reduce your UTIL.  You already have the new account ding and HP hit.

I got all the store cards in my signature with scores below 627.   You may want to try the Shopping Cart Trick if you want a card with no HP.
