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.

Re: Just got approved for Barclay's iTunes card

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
