Depends.  How will it affect your utilization?

Probably not then.  Congratulations on the low utilization.  It looks like you're doing well anyway, but you won't likely see any score improvement for going from 15% to 11%.
 
If you can get it down to 9% or less, then you probably will see a few points.

I agree with cheddar. Right under 10 percent seems to be a magic number for FICO.
