Aspire Credit Card
Atlanta, Georgia U.S.A.

Aspire Credit Card Recieved a letter in the mail today that they have closed my account to new transactions and may refuse to authorize any new transactions effective November 25th, 2008. Effective immediately my credit limit is $100.00. They still want money for people that may owe them but my balance is "0". I have also been told that it can hurt your credit score if this happens. Anyone know if that is a fact? Atlanta Georgia

Recieved a letter in the mail today from Aspire that they have closed my account to new transactions and may refuse to authorize any new transactions effective November 25th, 2008. Effective immediately my credit limit is $100.00. They still want money for people that may owe them but my balance is "0". I have also been told that it can hurt your credit score if this happens. Anyone know if that is a fact? How can they just up and close an account knowing they could hurt someones credit score. I hope someone can help us out. This really irritates me!!

Aspire is getting out of the credit card business altogether. That is why they are closing accounts.

Don't let them close your account

AUTHOR: Rrrric - (U.S.A.)

I am going to close my account first. I only owe them $8, and, I paid then with an EFT from my bank today so that tomorrow I can call and close my account. I figure it will look better on my credit reports if I closed my account rather than they did.

It depends

AUTHOR: Nikki - (U.S.A.)

It depends on what your limit was before they reduced it to $100. If it was only $500 and they reduced it to $100, it wouldn't count for much of a score change. If it was thousands, then it may matter.

It also depends on how long you have had the account and if they list it as closed on your report. If you have had the account for a few years or less, it won't matter much to not be counted as an open account. If you have had the account for many years, then it will hurt to have an old account that was used toward history to be closed. The reporting agencies do not use good standing accounts that are closed and paid to figure your score.
