How did your score changed by closing your Citi Credit card?

Can somebody able to tell us how many scores went down by closing your Citi Credit Card due to the AF charge?

Re: How did your score changed by closing your Citi Credit card?

I don't know if anyone would have seen any score change yet, if it were going to happen, because you'd have to wait for the monthly update by Citi, I think.

But if you don't have balances on other cards, closing this one won't make a score difference, because your util will remain the same.

For anyone else trying to figure how this works, read fused's Closing Credit Cards. It's a great explanation of what will happen, what might happen, what won't happen, and when.
