[ Edited ]

I figured but making sure i know they count as credit limit for debt to limit ratio
but trying to figure out what my average age of accounts will be now that I've closed some of my oldest credit cards
and they will go off my books sometime in 2022~ 2023

the 4 cards i' opened this past month will be 10 years by then plus my oldest credit card now will be cap one opened in 07 heh
I read somewhere on my report that my average age for credit lenght is at 5.5 years or something and my oldest one is 10 .6 years old

Thanks Guys

+3

any account on CR count towards AAoA open or closed

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
