Should I close my best buy gold mc?

My CL is only 500 dollars. I never really use it and the last time I used it was in dec and was PIF. It is run by capital one (formerly HSBC ) which im sure most of you know. It has an AF of 59 dollars and the rewards aren't that great. All CLIs are HPs and I asked about getting this removed and they said they couldn't. I don't wanna go through cap1s EO again as I'm sure they couldn't do anything. Any way I could downgrade to the store card and possibly get a higher limit? I haven't used it anywhere but best buy../ I'm leaning towards closing it because the AF is coming next month

I would close it. 

High AF - Low CL - Low chance of a worthwhile CLI - Rewards that are 'meh' at best. 

 

From the looks of your siggy it won't impact your UTIL very much so I don't see a reason not to close the acct. 

 

 

Just *my* opinion though :smileywink:

As long as there is no AF then there is no reason to close it.

Re: Should I close my best buy gold mc?

I'm in the same boat. I called the regular customer service number and was told they will not waive it. Did you call the EO? I don't want to close mine but, like you, it is a low limit and $49/yr. I was able to PC my other C1 card into a reward card with no AF last month.

I just called the number on my best but card and just said I wanted to close it because I can hardly use it because of the low limit and high annual fee and he transferred me to someone and I reexplained my reasons and he waived the AF for this year

Agreed. Not sure if you can request the store card on an app.
