Did you ask for an increase?  I've had mine since 12/09, and they gave me one auto CLI during that time (went from $600 to $800).  I initiated a CLI by their automated phone system in January, and they bumped it up to $1200.  For the free FICO score (and the periodic increases that I now plan to ask for since learning about GE and their soft pulls), I consider these two good reasons to keep mine.

If you never used it, it's unlikely that they would give you an increase.

Cards like being used and abused, but also being paid on time.

It won't hurt your score except for the util.  But, you are saying the CL was so low anyway, I assume it won't have much of an impact on the util.  It will only matter afer 10 years when it falls of our credit report.


My Starting Score: EQ: 691 (11/30/11) TU98: 726 (11/30/11)
My Current Score: EQ: 779 (04/22/13) TU08: 835 (06/03/13)

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