Just got approved for Barclay's iTunes card

My credit is so much better then what I was. I just recently got a $500 CLI (without asking) on my Paypal credit line and also another increase on my Walmart card. I currently have an Orchard card at a lowley $400 CLI. Should I cancel and if I do, would it negatively effect my credit rating?

If there is an annual fee then I would personally recommend "yes" close the account.. if no annual fee keep it.

Closing could affect it if it reduces your overall avail credit. But seeing as how you just got a CLI that shouldn't be the case. If no AF then I'd leave it be and just have it avail.

It's only a $400 limit with a $79 annual fee. I used to to rebuild, but now I have no use for it. I will also not affect my AAA
