Generally, open credit card accounts look better on your credit report than closed accounts because open accounts add to your credit history. It’s good for your credit score to have a long credit history. If you made the mistake of closing credit cards like I did and want to reopen the credit card, you can simply ask the credit card company reopen the account. However, this might result in them opening a new account.
Your best bet is to ask them beforehand whether it will show up as a new account on your credit report or the old account status will change to “open”. Best case senario, they agree to reopen the credit card.
