    How soon can I re-apply for a credit card I have had previously 11th Jul 07 at 10:26 PM
    Hi Everybody,

    This is my first go easy on me ;o)

    I was looking through my wallet and realised I had 5 credit cards in it that had no balances on and that I never use. I do however have a 6th card which is the one I use and does has a balance on.

    The 0% interst period is coming to an end on this 6th card and so I used an online facility for checking the best deals on balance transfers, as I do at the end of every promotional period (serious credit card tart ). It was then that I realised the majority of the best offers were cards I already had but the promotional period had ended for me which is the reason I balance transfered the remaining balance to another 0% card and left the card active but with no balance on.

    So I thought if I cancel the cards I no longer use how long should I wait until I can re-apply for a card that I have already had about a year ago and would the lender even consider me being that I had an account and closed it and now I am requesting to open another account?

    If anybody has had any experiences with this I would be really interested to read about it.

    Thanks Guys!!
