Cancel Walmart credit card + Target Red Card?

Postby Philosophuer » Thu Apr 05, 2012 8:25 pm

I don't really carry balances, and I recently closed my Target red card and Walmart credit card, I don't see a value in using them. I've had them both for under 2 years, will closing them affect my score?

Probably just a little. I have the Target debit card for the 5% off, I see little need for their credit card that can only be used at their stores and website.

I agree with you philosophuer. Unless you are a student with no credit or if you work for the store, there's no reason to have there cards when you can only use them in one place. You did the right thing.

It will take a little hit, just like when I close out accounts it does to me. You have better cards in your wallet than those 2 stores.

Your score will eventually go up again.
