Last night I closed six store credit accounts and one Visa account that I rarely use. It’s part of the credit clean-up we’re doing to start our marriage off. I was all geared up to argue with the credit card companies and decline their repeated offers to entice me to stay. I thought it would probably be like trying to close an AOL account (anybody else ever live through that nightmare?).
Boy was I surprised when not one of them tried to get me to keep my account open! I have excellent credit so I thought they would want to keep me around. Guess not!
I have read that banks are trying to reduce the credit they have made available to customers, so maybe this was why.
Anybody else get hit with the door on their way out recently?
