Who told you having lots of credit was bad for your credit score? That's what helps your credit score if you pay your bill in full each time (or at least on time for the minimum payment), if you aren't charging a lot, and paying on time then that will all help your credit score. Closing credit cards may actually lower the credit score a bit. Myfico.com is a good resource to research before you decide to close your credit card. To close the account you will call the number on your statement or on the back of your card and request the account to be closed. Depending on their procedures they may ask you why you want to close it and try not to have you close it.
