Sounds like something a bunch of emo kids would do, but my BBRZMC, Capital One, hubby's Capital One and Credit one all met a long overdue death with a pair of very sharp kitchen scissors! Cutting those SOBs up was way more fun than burning them
I'll keep them open for UTIL purposes (all 4 only add 1,850 to total util) until they close. Credit one was the best to cut up. Those slimey ridiculous AF charging bast*rds. I realize they have a job, and gave us a chance when no one else would...but they still suck

cut them off and sent it back to them in mail....

The only AF one, Credit one, will be closed in the morning. The other two have never charged me an AF..if they have, they've done it veeeeeeeeery sneakily.

I haven't cut up any of my credit cards yet, but I actually like cutting stuff. At work we had a whole plastic bag of unclaimed lost/found credit/debit/atm cards. Took me like half an hour to cut them all up but it was fun! I didn't cut up a single AMEX though, so I guess AMEX cardholders know how to keep their cards safe!

Oh credit one (cap 1 wannabe) yeah it was a great day cutting that one up a month before I would be getting charged a monthly fee of $8.25 just for the privileged of keeping this card warm in my wallet

Why are you cutting your husbands cards? weird. Seems like I am missing something, they were his; how did they help both of you? were you an AU? weird, how come you cannot just set them aside? why cut them? you did not close the accounts? weird. If my wife cut my cards I would be like why did you do that? I was going to buy that new shiny kegerator for your birhtday, that is crazy. Please put the scissors down, I would rather my wife pickup laundry, clean the cat box, take out the trash or make me a samwich before she thought of cutting up my credit cards, but hey that is just me.\
