It felt good!

To cut up my Merrick bank card! I'm going to keep it open for util until I can get a higher CL card, but I know it'll feel even better to call and say "close it!"!! Credit one also met an untimely death this morning. It's open for util purposes, but that's it!

Current Score: TU: 668 (FICO), EQ: 668 (FICO). EX: 651(lender pull 9/27/12)

Closed mine 2 weeks ago after only having it for 7 months. They didn't give me a CLI at 6 months and my scores are up about 100 points since I opened the account. Good riddance!
