Well, after waiting a short period, I signed up and was approved for a new CC with the bank. What is odd, is they actually increased my total CL by $15k+. I already had a CL that was over 4 times that amount.
Normally I wait 10 months to a year or so and then cancel. If the card has no fee, I'll leave it open. I try to always stay at 4 cards or less with any bank. I'd rather move CL to another card or cards, close the "newest" card to preserve my credit history and increase age of accounts and then apply. I prefer to be at 3 cards or less, but 4 is my max. I've never had any major problems in the past and plan to rinse and repeat with other major banks in the future, as the deals continue to come.
I like to keep my information generic, just for paranoia sakes.
Here's to another CC that will get me more miles, points, cash or other freebies for little to know work or spending requirements.
Thanks for the reply and you wanted to know what happened, otherwise I would not of posted anything.
