This 802 score, is it a FICO score and which CRA? Just curious, nice score! If you pay off the CAP1 I don't see any problems. Just remember closed CC TLs (tradelines) with zero balances do not factor in util% calculations. FYI, for max FICO points it's best to have 1-9% util of total CL (credit limit) on all CCs reporting on your CRs (credit reports). Also, it's common for your FICO scores to get dinged with a new inq and new account especially for folks with high scores. If you need a bigger CL then go for it, your score alone should get you the financing required to purchase the Dow Jones Industrial!
