We recently received a question from a reader who wants to know if there’s any way she can close unused credit cards without hurting her credit scores and how taking this action could impact her credit overall:

I have at least ten credit cards and I only use two of them — Amazon and a Discover card that I only use when I shop Costco.

Is there anything else I can do?
