Should I ax Barclays apple card

I have so many new accounts right now that far exceed my barclays limit of $2500 and the intrest stinks my only card above 20% plus I just dont see me using it, It is sitting in the sock drawer right now. I got all the cards I can handle and another one needs to go. Its between my BofA American Express and Barclays right now. I just dont see Barclays being to friendly to my drapping spree I went on after I got the approval from them. Should I strike first?

I see your point but scoring does not really care if its closed by consumer or closed by lender

Barclay SAYS they won't convert, but with a little pressure, they will. Son converted his Apple Barclaycard to their Barclay Rewards VISA. It just took a little pushing.
