This is a real unknown. Some CCCs might close an account with no activity after 4 months, some 6, others 9 or 12, and some just do not care and will keep your account open indefinitely.

So I was wondering how it takes for account to be reported inactive/unused so I can just charge something every so often to keep it active.
