Should I close my oldest card or keep it?
I have 2 credit cards, one oldest by 3 months. The card limit is still only $750 after over 4 years of having the card with perfect payments (always paid off in full each month). However, my other card is up to $5000 now. The company will not increase the limit. Should I open a new card somewhere else with a higher limit and close this one? Or should I get a new card and keep this open even if I never use it again?
