I’ve thought about it, and I’ve decided to keep Credit Card #5. I’ve had it for about 8 years now and I’ve been reading that you shouldn’t close credit cards from years ago. They are actually helping your credit score because it shows your credit history for those years (as long as you’ve been a good payer and everything).
So what I am going to do is keep the card for certain purchases, ones that I would pay off in full every month. There is no way that I am letting that card have a high balance again. And like I’ve said before, I don’t want to ever pay them a finance charge again.
Later today I will be calling to see if I can reverse the late fee. I’ll give it a shot 😉
