You call the issuer and ask them to close it. But why would you want to? if it doesn't have any annual fees, you should always keep your oldest credit card open. One of the factors in a credit score is length of credit. The longer you have had credit the higher your score is. So keeping that oldest accoutn open is a good thing (again if it does nto cost you anything).

I agree with ladald... if it is not costing you anything keep it open.  But the good news is if it is in good standing it will stay on your credit reoport for 10 years.
