combine credit cards ?

I currently have a capitol one cc, an hsbc (orchid bank) cc and a best buy hsbc cc. so capitol one has bought out hsbc. so would it be advisable to consolidate the three cards are keep them as three sepreate accounts?

Call them and ask. My gut instinct would be to say no, but I never say never. Only they can tell you for sure one way or the other.


Note: Capital One bought out HSBC Finance, not HSBC USA.

Good luck.  Crap1 told me no.  YMMV tho.
