Why close a no AF card? Why not just SD it?

Thats how I always feel.

I mainly use my Walmart card for my toddler (pull-ups, wipes, etc). Plus, it's easy to keep track of his expenses and then PIF when I get the monthly child support check. :smileyhappy:

Re: Walmart account closed......

A no AF card that gives you your TU, and you close it because you felt slighted because of no CLI?

What's done is done, but in the future, I'd value a card that gave me my credit score a lot higher, despite of a lack of CLI's.

Right, if there's ever a reason to keep a no fee card with a low CL that you'd never use, it would be this.

Well at least the OP can still get their TU FICO score ~ apparently even after you close your wally card if you log in you'll still see the score.

Yep - my cards' been closed for a year or so and I pull my TU FICO score.

 

OP - I think you'll be fine closing the card.  When I closed my Walmart card, there just wasn't a FICO impact.  Of course YMMV.

When I took DH off as AU on a different store card (Macy's) his score actually went up (it had gone down when I added him - both score changes occured the same day as the AU reported on and off).  No impact on his AAofA - so - who knows?  :smileyfrustrated:

Re: Walmart account closed......

GE is normally good at CLI but no AF so thats a plus and the TU08.

 

I think you still get your TU08 if the account is closed? I thought i read this somewhere
