REOPENING A CLOSED CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT

How will reopening a credit card account with a balance affect my credit score? Will it be viewed as a new account?

Re: REOPENING A CLOSED CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT

Should go back on as original. Some banks require a hard inquiry to reactivate and sometimes if more than 90 days they refuse reactivation. But putting and older closed account back usually is a good move in my opinion. If there is a balance it is already being factored in to UTL. Can only help not hurt imo.

If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.
