Alright, but just keep an eye on your credit score as you do so. It helps to have them on there unused or not, so if you're not paying fees you can just cut up the cards without cancelling and you won't lower your score at all.

We were on the phone for nearly 10 minutes and I just got fed up but still kept my cool because I called from my office. Strangely, he got all personal and angry and said just go ahead and destroy the card and get on with my life. He even said how I can just walk away from an institution that supported me in the past 2 years. I was like WTF. In any event, I think he finally closed my account but I won’t believe it until I receive the confirmation letter in the mail. How strange .... [/SIZE]
Sorry, but I don't believe this story at all. I hate Citicard as much as the next person but they are always robot-polite.

Sorry, but I don't believe this was worthy of going back to seven years after the fact.
