If you filled out a credit card application on impulse, you might end up regretting your decision by the time you get the card in the mail. It’s important to know that when you apply for a credit card, you aren’t just asking for the card itself. Your account is probably already active whether or not you’ve activated the card itself. As long as your card does not have an annual fee, your best option may be to leave the card open. This will help preserve your credit score.
You can customize your debit or credit cards with a second line. Have a favorite nickname, sports team or just something fun you want to include?
