Hauling that is a great Idea!  1 MC and 1 gas card each month - and rotate them.  Use the 4th MC to pay all house bills -- YES!!!!!!!  Great way to keep everyhthing active.

Great ideas everybody!
 
Amex definitely loves to cancel due to inactivity.
 
No sense in keeping a card open if it's not helping anybody.  This even goes for annual fee charge cards.  They don't care about the annual fee, they want you charging.

I like that idea, I'll give it some thought.  Only problem is I have like 8 cards, so maybe I'll use 2 each month or something.  Haven't figured this one all out yet. 
 
Thanks for the advice.

Yeah, I read another thread this good idea about cycling through cards.  That's definitely the best way to manage credit.  Sock Drawer majority and occassionally dust them off for some swipeage.

Will do!
 
On a sidenote:  about $900 of the $4k or so I paid off of my CCs posted on my TC account today...   My TU and EX score popped 15 points each!  I can't wait for the other ~$3,100 and $1,000 in CLIs to hit! 
 
Love this forum.
