Tips for maintaining a store charge card
When I was fairly new to credit, I opened a Capital One Helzberg Diamonds credit card for a large purchase. This is one of my oldest credit cards, and has the highest limit, so I do not want to lose it due to inactivity, as it is a big boost to my credit score. However, it is my understanding that cards such as mine are usable only at the retailer issuing them, and I do not have a need to make regular purchases of jewelry. Is there any other way of maintaining the account, perhaps purchasing items and returning them?
