Don't make the mistake I did! Keep them ALL open.Just before I went to get a mortgage, I closed all of my cards except one (closed 3). Same logic - "look how responsible I am, without tons of credit cards!" What I didn't know then, that I do now, is that this makes you look terrible to a potential lender and drags your score down. So - yeah,close these AFTER you have the mortgage and have closed on the house. Not before.
