With the cards you have, I would close Orchard, just to save money and/or from the inconvenience of calling every year trying to get the AF waive

Re: Should I close Orchard Bank??

Something to consider;  Orchard bank was just purchased by Capital One - so there's a chance in the next 12 months or so you might get the opportunity to convert to a higher limit / no AF card.  That's the only reason mine is still open.  I figure if I can keep getting CLI's and waiving the AF until I see what happens, I might as well.
