I wanna close my Orchard card! good or not?

[ Edited ]
it's a secured card that i've had since 11/07 it didn't even start reporting until jan of 08. I figure what harm can it do to close, i already paid the AF as soon as I got it. Plus I could put that $300 towards paying on other cc bills. Plus i haven't used it since jan. pif in feb and it's been in the sock drawer

Are you rebuilding your credit? I'd say keep it for a year. When the AF comes around, ask them to waive it, if they don't, leave. App for another card before you leave tho. AF's are wasted money.

If you're not part of the BOA family, you could always put the $300 towards a BOA secured card also. They will actually grow with you.

NC will grow with me a hell of a lot more than orchard!
