Do you still have your.......................

Very first CC that you received? My sister got her Sport Chalet VISA on April 2012 and plans to keep up as a memory. It looks just like this)

Nope, when I got approved for the BoA Amex, they closed my BoA Visa.

Re: Do you still have your.......................

I still have mine. It's locked in a box back in my home in the US.

 

It might sound silly, but I open it to have a look once every time we go back. It helps remind me of where I don't want to find myself in 10 years time.

Re: Do you still have your.......................

1978, was my first experience with "instant credit" the store manager gave me instant credit

took this flimsy piece of plastic (credit card) put it in the typewriter and typed my name and account number

on it, it has like a signature strip on the front for name and account, ahh the good old daysSmiley Happy

Re: Do you still have your.......................

Yes I do...BofA Travel rewards (PC a few times) and I will always keep it... I am too sentimental to close it as it was soooo hard to get it. LOL

Sure do, I keep it around for AAoA. Plus the APR isn't too bad even though I have cards with lower and I never carry a balnce.

Re: Do you still have your.......................

if I can get BOFA to drop my AF on my Travel Rewards nee secured card I'll probably keep it forever.

 

CS: I do the same with my first set of credit reports I pulled.  Not ever going back there if I can help it.
