[quote]What about downgrading to green? [/quote] Green still has a fee tho, right? I guess I would have to weigh the hit to my credit score vs paying $95 each year. Anyone have specifics on how cancelling a card impacts your overall score? How noticeable is it?...

Only problem is I now have a $16,000 limit on a card I dont use - what are the con...
