yeah I guess me too, I won't officially come out till late August early September. The plan then is to increase limits, do a backdoor limit transfer, and close all my cards with 4-digit credit limits.


Hi...  can I ask a question about closing cards?  Do you just not need the UT, or are you closing because of annual fees?  just curious why close cards instead of leaving them sit open to help with UT if nothing else. 

FICO: EQ 722 | TU 710 | EX 718
SFFCU Visa $15k + LOC $5k, USAA Amex $6k, USAA MC $7k, Amex BCE $25k, Cap1 $4.5k, Freedom $8.5k, Slate $3.2k, Barclays SM $9k, Care Credit $13.5k.

I don't need the utilization ratio, or the age of those cards, as they would all be very young cards

 

they are basically credit institutions with a very low risk appetite, compared to other institutions

 

having too many open accounts is a negative thing to some future lenders and a FICO score, having too many accounts with balances is a negative thing to some lenders and a FICO score, so where possible it makes sense to decrease lines via selection and keep only the older, larger and more high quality lines like Chase Sapphire Preferred.
