Below you will find an approximate example of what an issuer may use in regards to credit. One factor to consider is the rate will differ dramatically from a person with good credit and a person with bad credit. Credit rating and history will also affect the amount of credit that is given. Credit Score Rating Example Excellent - 720 - 850 Good - 680 - 720 Fair - 640 - 680 Poor - 350 - 640 No Credit - 300 - 349

Does cancelling a credit card affect your credit score?

Yes, canceling a credit card always reduces your credit score. It never improves your credit score if you cancel a credit card account. If you have had the card for more than 2 years, or if you have a substantial amount of available credit at the time that you close the account, then the reduction in your credit score is even greater. However, if it makes sense to you to close the card, and you do not plan large purchases in the near future, your credit will recover without your feeling the difference.
