If I close the new cards, this would affect my credit score right?

I think you have way too many, you should get rid of like 6 of them.

It can really boost your score if you have many cards but maintain it well. But for the time being manage the ones you have.

Da,

It is of course very good if the card has been paid off but a card which is being used and maintained has more value.

Hi Ism,

If you want to close down any card by choice, close a new one which is not being used. The effect on your credit score will be lesser. Do not spoil your credit history by canceling old cards.

Subject: How many credit cards should I have
 
Posted on Mon Mar 03, 2008 8:20 pm  

I have 8 credit cards, 2 of them I have had for 5 years and each is $300.00 and then I started getting offers with more money and that is how I ended up with these other cards. If I close the new cards, this would affect my credit score right? What should I do? I had debt problem and kept maxing the cards and now I am paying them off and I am working hard on that. What should I do, keep the cards or close some of the cards. I want to buy a house in the future.

From all I have learned in the past couple of weeks, ask yourself a couple questions first. Is your immediate goal raising your credit score? or are you looking 2 years out at buying a house? Credit cards are only good for your score if they are empty. If you can't make the payments and keep them empty, then close a couple and leave the highest limit ones open and work on keeping those balances low.

You have to be honest with yourself - if you have 8 cards available, are you going to be able to NOT use them? If you pay off and close a couple, your score will drop in the short term, but as the balances fall on the remaining ones, and hopefully the limits increase, your score will go up too.

Hey just happened upon your blog from Google after I eenertd in, Someone who inspires me. | International Adult Figure Skating or perhaps something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm pleased I found it simply because your content is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as the source. Thank you.
