I have a question regarding my credit cards/score.
1 month ago I got approved Capital One Quicksilver with no annual fee. 3 months ago I got approved Discover card. I dislike the Discover Card, but it was a great start. Should I keep my Discover card or cancel it? My Quicksilver card offers a 5k CL and my Discover only offers $500 CL. I got approved the Quicksilver card with a Trans-union credit score of 649 fair. Should I build my credit card score first then cancel my Discover or should I just keep it?

Typically, its recommended that you don't ever close a credit card, especially if your credit history is short.

If you don't like Discover, just don't use it.  Closing it will likely hurt your score, since it will reduce your total available credit limits.
