If I am showing credit for travel charge, is there any chance of the credit being reversed if I cancel that original charge?

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Yes
i would like to close the card, is there any way to know it won't be reversed? The original charge was refunded a few days ago...if the credit will be reversed does it happen within a certain amount of time?

The reimbursement and refund both posted a week ago, on the 19th. Still not safe?
