  1. Newbie Question: I just called to cancel my Chase Business Ink card. I have had the card for 3 years, never paid interest on the card, spent a large amount at first and then intermittent amounts through the years. I was never referred to a “retention department” or offered anything. The woman just said she would close it. When I asked if she would move my credit line over to another of my personal Chase cards she said she couldn’t because they were different types of cards even though when I opened the Business card, I moved credit from personal to business to do so. I am afraid of my personal credit getting dinged now if that credit amount is not moved over to my personal. The yearly fee of $95 comes out on February 25th. Should I just call closer to the time and ask another rep to close it and hope they offer to wave the yearly fee?


    • Chase almost never offers retention bonuses. You will have to make a decision about whether you get enough value from the card to pay the fee. You could also downgrade to the Ink Cash.
