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 a couple of cards that are from 1992 (when i started my credit history). Got a Montgomery Wards, Curcuit City, and the old Discover (black and orange back then).

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

Move the mouse over the cards for detailed view!

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.
