Re: Should I Cancel paid off credit cards?

If your just changing banks and not applying for new credit, no change in your scores will occur.

They might make an enquiry - minor hit on your score.
 
You total availble credit would go up - minor plus on your score
 
Your average account age would go down - minor hit on your score
 
You would have opened a new account - minor hit on your score
 
So it all depends where you are now in terms of score, and what you want out of life  :smileyhappy:

Do you need the credit card?  If so, then your scores are likely to change if you apply.
 
Do you know your thee FICO scores (not Fako)?
 
What accounts are reporting on your reports?
 
Do you have cc's?  What are the credit limits and balances on each?
 
Any loans, mortgages, etc.?
 
How many inquiries are being reported on each report?
 
Any baddies on your reports?

Re: Should I Cancel paid off credit cards?

Nothing bad on my report...except from last year...I have 2 late payments...ouch!
My score is 703....I have a car loan of 540/month
On credit card of 500(that's my Bank)
another one of 250(that's the card with the 2 late payments)
 
that's about it
 
So the "new " bank would offer me a credit card of 15 000
Not that  need it but it make me feel that this bank trust me more....
