Re: Time to drop First Premier???

Close it!!!!!! it's costing you $84 a year and I'm willing to be you are not even using it with the variety of cards you have now..heck you probably don't even carry it in your wallet. It's done it's job and it will be there for up to 10 years as good credit and history. Right now you are throwing $84 bucks a year away

NFCU Visa Sig $25k / Fidelity Amex $7.5k / Chase Freedom Visa $7.5k / BOA - BBR MC $7.5k / Chase Sapphire Preferred $7k / Best Buy Platinum MC $3K / Barclay Rewards MC $2k / Chase Amazon Visa $1k / Discover IT $1K / GE Lowes and GE Walmart $5k / GE Amazon $2450 / Target RedCard - $300 / NO CAPONE IN MY WALLET ANYMORE!

Does it have an AF? 

 

Personally, I'd close it. It will still report positive for 10 years, and when it drops your other cards will have aged with it. 


ok so im confused now. 

if  i close an account in good standing (0 balance) 

it will still report and age? just like other open used accounts? 


yes, accounts closed in good standing will continue to report for up to 10yrs. I think there is a sticky on this subject.
