Oldest credit card closed, how can I repair credit?
I have a visa credit card with my bank. They recently offered to make my card a rewards card. What I did not realize when I accepted, was they closed my old card and opened a new card. This card was my oldest card on my credit report, and closing dropped my score, and my average open credit age from 8yrs to 4yrs. Is there any way to recover or do I just have to wait till my average open credit age goes up?
