Should i close an account Ijust paid off?
I have a GE Credit credit card for medical expenses. The total credit line is $5,000. I just paid off a balance of $3,800 and it should reflect shortly. I want to improve my credit score and don't ever plan on using this account again. It does not have an annual fee or any other carrying charges.

Should I close the account or leave it open with a $0 balance to improve my credit score?
