Re: Marathon Visa Closing January 2019

Sorry about the closure op. Maybe another issuer will offer the card in the future. 

Got some pruning to do... No more new cards!

I've never even heard of Marathon before, must be a region specific gas chain.

They have quite a few stations in Chicago area, and there is one around ~0.5 mi where I live. They don't have gas stations in western parts of US.

Several in Ohio as well and surrounding states.

There was a rumor floating around that the Marathon CC program was eventually going to be phased out so I guess it's been confirmed!

This is interesting, I have this card (store version) but have not received this message. Although I stopped using the card years ago, I always kept it paid in full so it has a zero balance. My USAA 5% cash back on gas replaced this card.

I clicked on this thread expecting one or more comments about good credit being a marathon not a sprint.

Marathon is actually more of the #1 or #2 largest refiner who just happens to own a few gas stations along the way.
