Do a search for 'score close card' in the CC forum, and read the threads/posts which seem relevant. Also search Google for credit score factors and read some of the articles that come up, that'll teach you a thing or two.

Typically it makes no sense to close cards, unless it's with reconsideration and you're doing it to push through an app. Or for annual fee reasons, in which case you can often convert to a different card type or consolidate credit lines.

I read the other discussions.  I get that.  Just looking for the practical advice- you have a lot of cards- what do you do with them? Do you rotate spending or once you have earned the points you put it in the draw for the picture to show everyone and just let it sit there?

If you're going to have lots of active cards, keep a spreadsheet (there's a thread in the CC forum, search for it and you'll find it) to keep track of them all.

You want to track: Spend requirements, due dates, balances, annual fees, and bonus rewards, to make sure it all goes smoothly. Once I've spent the required spending (for the bonus), I make sure to pay the bill and await the points. I deal with the annual fee when it's up for renewal (except for high annual fees like the Amex plat). My regular spend goes on whichever cards give me the best return for my money, in terms of which rewards I want.

Ok that seems pretty intuitive and basically what Ive been doing.  Just needed to hear it from a veteran.

Thank you.

Experian told me up to 15 minutes, but it posted immediately. My Equifax posted immediately as well. YMMV. You can always call to confirm, or try to submit it a second time and see them tell you it is already blocked.

If you're a victim of identity theft in virtually all states. If you're over 65 in some states. If it's the first time you're adding one, in NY state. See the freeze chart I linked to here (bolded):
The costs are outlined here. It might make sense to be a victim of identity theft, as is seems it'll make freezing and unfreezing your reports free for life. The links for initiating a freeze online are not current in that article, here are the current links:

Equfax
Experian
TransUnion

Can you apply, and have you done it, for the same chase cards accepted for 30 days later with the older one still active?  Success with that?

Any feelings/thoughts/comments on the new US Air 40k offer??

Already discussed, search the forums. There's a better promo using this link, but we're not big fans of US Airways around here.

I did it together with a US Air Biz for 80k (two 10k BTs @ $99 each). YMMV.
