how long should I wait to cancel a recently opened credit card?
I recently opened a new store credit card to get the discount they were offering on the items I wanted to purchase. I opened the card, used it, payed it in full and found I don't really need this card anymore. I opened this card back in March, and I'm concerned that if I close it will his affect my credit score? Should wait for the company to close for non-use?
