I have 4 credit cards that are paid off, have a 0 balance but haven't been used in a while. They last time they were used was 10/2011.
What is the general rule of thumb? If there are not used will they get closed out?
I do not want them to get closed out at all. I will make small purchases with them if need be. I have a long credit history with these cards..
So what should I do, make a small purchase, pay it off and leave it alone for another year?
