This question already has an answer here:
I m relatively a new resident in the US. I opened an account with BofA (oct/2016) and after struggles they approved me for their student secured credit card account (700$). After 4 months I applied for their cash back and I got approved with a credit line of (5000$). After 2 months I got an invitation from discover and I opened another account with a credit line of (5000$) and now they increased it by 1600 more. My credit score
FICO keeps showing that it is impacted by the length of oldest account.
My question, I really don't use the very first account and I m thinking of closing it, is it going to affect my credit score? If yes, what is the alternative?
