Does closing card remove inquiry?

 

I was thinking about closing one of my cards and was wondering if it would remove the two inquiries that I got on my CR (one at the time of applying the card a year ago and one at a CLI request)? This local bank started me off with $500 and after a year of maintaining the card, gave me just a $500 CLI and that too after a hard pull. I'm pissed off with this bank and wanted to close the card.

 

My second question: Even after closing the card, it accounts for in the length of credit history and AAoA for 10 years, correct?

Walmart Discover $10,000... Chase SW $8,500... Freedom $7,000... CSP $6,000... Amex Delta $3,000... Amex BCP $2,000... Local CU $1,500...

No  Lol on 1st question yes to 2nd

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

I would hate to get a measly $500 after a HP. I don't blame you wanting to stop doing business with them altogether. Any baddies? Good score? Is their a manager or higher up you might be able to appeal to?
