Chase bought them out a few years ago... I'm guessing you really have a Chase card. I know you can sign onto either site and it will recognize your account.

I'll probably fill up with some gas every month or so. I'll keep the automatic payment thing on, so at least I don't have to worry about sending them a check. Using 5 or 6 different cards, just for small purposes, can be inconvenient come bill time. I'd just hate to forget about one and wind up with a 30 day late!Thanks.

I like that idea alot! I think I'll start doing that. I too have cards that are collecting dust that I don't want to be closed for inactivity and this would help greatly.
You might consider starting a card-of-the-month club for your cards--seriously! Just carry one card at a time for a month, do the partial paydown before it posts, and then PIF it. Next month, the next card. They'll all rotate through often enough to stay current, you might get enough usage on each during its Special Month to encourage the CCC to look at a CL, and you only have to worry about one or two at a time.
Just be sure to pull up the online accounts once or twice a month on the ones in your sock drawer to make sure that everything's nice and quiet with them.
