Re: Want to be debt free with min. Cards

If your goal truly is to shore up the credit rating for the future then prioritize the cards you want to keep by longest age and highest limits.  That way you are shoring up your AAoA and CLI position.  Unless you think you'll have the discipline to manage dozens of cards on a spreadsheet each weekend as the other poster noted, it's a good idea to get the number down to a managable level.
