Experian Score drop/Closed Acct

Well if anyones considering closing an older acct it may ding your score.
Just closed older bestbuy mastercard owned by chase because only had 400cl and yearly fee. Just got hit by Experian by 9 pts because of closing, I didn't expect that. Just thought I would throw the info out there.In comments they put "payed acct" Info myfico.

Re: Experian Score drop/Closed Acct

First off, IMO 9 points is a low threshold for worrying over.  Second, how did you determine that the account closure was the sole cause of the score change?
