LOL - Hooters closed my card - beat me to the punch!

[ Edited ]

I was planning on closing the card since it only had a $500 limit.  It has been sock-drawered for about a year - I was planning on calling next week to close it myself. 

 

I guess they figure I may go wild and charge up to the max - LOL - wouldn't want to expose themselves to a $500 loss.

 

At least it shows as "closed at consumer request".  

 

Good riddances to bad rubbish  :-)

 

Edited to add: I lost 1 point on my EQ (via Scorewatch)...

Yea, I also received a Sorewatch alert on yesterday stating that Hooters had closed my account as well.  I activated this card about a year ago and had never used it. I don't think I would have used it anyhow, I just applied because I heard that they were generous with CL.  It will bring my utilization up slightly but I offset it by getting a guideline increase with my Macy's Visa.  :smileyhappy: 
Having credit is important if not more important than having cash!!!

That's nice of them to tote up disuse as "consumer request". It's fair even if it doesn't make any difference.
