craig arent the "experts" now advising it is bad for your credit rating to close credit card accounts?
also a spending limit or what ever based on age would be agism (spelling?)and it is naive to think that the race card wont be played by someone based on thier denial. thats what they are going through in the NBA right now the age limitation that most people clamor for gets spun into a race issue as well.

It the short run, it can be ... but only because the geniuses that devised the scoring system made it so ANY activity lowers your credit score. For example, each INQUIRY on your account lowers the score.

However, by closing ALL your cards except for perhaps one or two, within a year, your score will be higher ...

Yep ... It actually passed the house by 306 to 108, and the Senate by 83 to 15 ... A veto-proof bill.

>>maybe i should go ahead and bust it out with a new SVS or HSU purchase....

It's not too hard to get your dog a couple of MNBA Mastercards. Let the dog buy the luxuries.

"I don't know what happened... I leave him at home all day, I have to work you know".

Let them try to find a law that says you are responsible for your dog's financial liabilities

Don't you have two dogs with shifty looking eyes? Could get you in double the trouble.
