Re: Do i need to close any of these card?

If it has a fee monthly/annually then it should go i.e First Premier

If you don't use it then it should be a contender for the axe

 

If it were me I'd keep Cap 1 and BBT

WM can grow significantly with a call to Credit Solutions as it ages a bit more and TU scores over 720.

Like Obscure said, First Premier is gonna be a subprime lender, so I would axe that to just stay away from unless it gives you a very long credit history. The Cap1 is probably never gonna grow but Cap isn’t gonna nickel and dime you with fees as long as you pay the AF.

The others will just kinda sit there and age without an AF. Just keep them up to date.

And let that BBT card age!

Since the BB&T card is very recent and with a sizeable CL, what was the reason for entertaining the closure?

If it were me, I’d close all except the Walmart, Cap1 QS, and BBT.
