Do's and Don'ts of closing accounts...

Helpful to 2 out of 3 people

It is up to you whether you want to close out an account or not, but be advised you could be hurting your credit score if you do close out an account especially if it is your oldest account, still has a balance with the account in good standing, and was still actively being used.
