Got new Capital One card. However dropped avg age 10 to 6.5yrs. If I close, will score go back up?
Applied for new card and got a really low credit limit with Capital one. My highest is $5,000, they gave me $500. It also lowered the average age of my open credit lines by almost 4 years, taking me from CK A rating to a B rating. If I close this card, will it have a negative, positive or no effect on my credit score?
