Re: Should I ?

Close it if its loaded with monthly fees, and AF's.  It's also a daily interest accruing account, so i don't think it gives a grace period for purchases either. My nephew got this card when he started building last year, and we closed it and opened a credit union visa for him.  I would definitely close it if you don't need it.  It won't affect your AAoA if you close it, because it will continue to report for 10 years from the time it's closed.
