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.......................

I still have mine, in fact just found them the other day in a box in the basement,

American Express Green, Member since 1974, also a Gordon Jewelry card that was from

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 days:smileyhappy:

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

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

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.
