Error!

We paid off our first credit card this week. High Fives were flying! But what is hilarious, is that we both got e-mail from the card issuer saying ERROR! Account balance zero, card closed.


Uh, that's no error, that's on purpose folks. Can I quote dog lady and tell the credit card company to Bite Me?

Yay for you!

I love how they think this is an error. The joke's on them!

I would totally quote the dog lady. I hate credit card companies.

Your credit score actually gets worse if you close your account. We found that out the hard way. My husband paid his off and requested his account be closed and his credit score dropped a lot! He would've been better off to leave the account open and just not use it.

We have had that happen before. Then the phone calls started coming in about how amazing their card is and blah, blah, blah. I had to get nasty with one company because they wouldn't leave us alone. Not a problem anymore!!

Oh yeah--Congrats!! I know the AWESOME feeling paying off a debt is!!

Hooray!!! That's wonderful. When my husband started to close all his credit card accounts several years ago people told him it would ruin his credit. His credit score has never been higher. Cash-only = freedom!

Congrats!

Shouldn't they be upping your credit line instead of closing it? Damn CC companies!

That's weird that they would do that! Oh well, maybe they're onto your get out of debt strategy and are trying to support you. :)

Congrats! I love that feeling...hope to have it fairly soon.

I'm gonna run the card through the shredder and send it back to them in their pre-addressed envelope for my check!

You go!!! I am so happy happy happy for you!

I return all credit card offers with "I See Debt people" or 'Cash is King" written all over it and Dave's website address.

Let them pay the postage for me to make a statement...
strange..I don't get as many anymore.
