Never activated it, never used it. Unfortunately though it reports on my bureau....ugh. You did the right thing, Credit One is scandalous.

Agreed! This was my first card (regrettably). I won't close it given that my credit history is short, but having to paying an annual fee on top of their high interest rate is the worst. Even when I called and tried to negotiate given that my score is around 740 they said that there was nothing they could do for me. :mad:

I'm not sure about the cancellation, but ... there is one thing I am confident that they will try to convince you to use a credit card.

Return to “Visa & MasterCard”
